A vacancy has arisen for someone with an interest in the use of technology in small organisations and in birth-related issues. This individual will have good digital technology skills, especially in the use of WordPress, the Google Suite of applications, Social Media and creating digital presentations. They will also have a good understanding of the differences and interoperability between Operating Systems, both desktop and mobile. Regular access to a reliable internet connection with reasonable bandwidth, and proficiency in spoken and written English, are essential. An understanding of global time zone management is also required.
The successful candidate will be well organised and a good project manager, preferably with experience of organising and managing meetings, both face to face and online. They will also be comfortable facilitating or moderating meetings and/or training.
This is a volunteer position for someone who is not necessarily either a midwife or an IT professional.
Committee members must commit to regular meetings in the run up to the conference, held on 5th May each year. Each committee member takes an active part in organisation before and facilitation during the 24-hour conference; hence the time commitment increases from an hour or two a week initially to five or six hours a week in the month before the conference. Planning for the conference starts in late September or early October. There is a review meeting sometime in the two or three weeks after the conference.
To apply for this position, complete the form below, providing an overview of your digital technology skills and experience, and a supporting statement explaining what you can bring to the committee and the VIDM (both maximum 500 words). A brief CV/resumé is optional – but always welcome.
The call for a new committee member is now closed. Thank you for your interest.
