Event Helper/ Planner * 2.

As our events become more and more popular it takes more to put them on and this means we need more staff to help out not only on the day but also in lead and planning of it.

So might be asking what does job involve well can be anything from finding a speaker to sorting our registrations for an event, to emailing the catering.

To give you an idea of what it takes to put events on the Rochdale conference I suspect between us probably took in excess of 100 hours to put the event on and all on a shoestring.

So with two of those a year, workshops, and now bett our events take a lot of time to put on so few more hands makes world of difference.

There are two openings for this role.

News & Content Writers

We love news on our site but our news editor has been busy of late and needs some help so we want people to write up news stories. We want people to write news stories and not just cope and paste news stories from other websites (mainly as less we can do that better due to copyright). You job is to scour the web and find interesting stories for our members, write them up and post them on the site. Your job will also be to write content for newsletter as well.
