A vacancy has arisen for a midwife or student midwife who is passionate about the global nature of midwifery education, research and practice. Being a Virtual International Day of the Midwife (VIDM) committee member is a volunteer position and demands commitment and engagement.

Most of the committee’s work is done in various collaborative technologies. We would expect a candidate to be highly IT literate and comfortable with office software, social media, content sharing systems (ideally Google Drive, our current document sharing platform), web conferences, and updating websites using content management suites like WordPress. A knowledge of marketing techniques will be advantageous. Proficiency in the English language is essential. Midwives or student midwives from Australasian or African regions will be a strong asset.

Committee members must commit to regular meetings in the run up to the conference (05 May 2020). Each committee member takes an active part in organization 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.

Thank you for your interest in this position. Submissions have now closed. Closing date 06 January 2020 at 24:00 UTC
