The Feminist Library is seeking a number of people to fill
Structured Volunteer Positions.
These posts will suit you if you want to work part-time in a friendly, feminist environment, are able to work unsupervised and as part of a collective, are a good administrator, and want to learn new skills, as well as share your own. The part-time, long-term nature of the work, and the commitment required, may be best suited to the active retired, but anyone with the requisite number of relevant skills and plenty of free time is encouraged to apply.
We are looking for people to help with the day-to-day running of the library, and act as back up to the management group, assisting with such tasks as bookkeeping, fundraising, organising events, marketing and promotion of the library, updating the website, and maintaining and expanding the library stock.
We plan to hire more than one Structured Volunteer, each working at least two days a week, mainly during the day, but with an occasional evening meeting. You must be available to work for a minimum of six months, and hopefully for longer. These positions are unpaid, but you will be given reasonable travel expenses, as well as, by agreement, other expenses directly connected with being at the library. At present, nobody who works at the library is paid, but we hope that this situation will change if we succeed with fundraising.
The deadline for applications is Monday 12th November 2012.All applications must be made online. All short-listed candidates will be contacted on Friday 23rd November, and interviews will be held at the Feminist Library on Monday 3rd December.
An induction for successful candidates will be held on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th January 2013. The placement will begin on Monday 7th January 2013.
