Interested in taking a more active role in London Roots Collective?
London Roots Collective is coordinated by three volunteers and supported by over ten facilitators.
The Coordination Group is looking for one or two more people to take an ongoing coordination role. **Please note, this position is currently unpaid**
A bit about what’s involved:
We work from the same space together once a week (any work we do outside this time we do from home) and have a Coordination Group meeting once every six weeks, where we rotate the tasks we do. These tasks include supporting the Pool of Trainers and Facilitators, coordinating workshop requests, checking and replying to emails, updating the website, fundraising, maintaining our trainers’ database, and participating in the Grassroots Trainers Network the Collective is part of. It also may include organising one-off events and weekend trainings.
Useful skills, experience and interests:
- Workshop facilitation experience
- Agreement with and belief in London Roots Collective’s aims and values
- Interest in, and understanding of, power dynamics in groups.
- Able to work independently, on own initiative and without direct supervision or management
- Some admin experience would also be helpful
At least 1 day per week to work from the same space together (this is currently on Tuesdays but may be change), preferably for a minimum of 6 months though longer would be welcome!
Social injustice disproportionately affects, among others, women, people of colour with a global majority heritage, disabled people, people from working class backgrounds and people on low incomes, and often it is these voices that are sidelined. As a Collective that supports groups working towards a more just and equitable society, we would particularly welcome expressions of interest from within these groups.
Please spread the word and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org telling us a bit about yourself, your relevant experience and why you’re interested in getting involved.
We would like to meet anyone interested for an informal chat by in early October so please get in touch by 23rd September.
