LGBTQymru is Wales’ only all-Wales, bilingual LGBTQ+ community website which publishes on-line articles about all aspects of LGBTQ+ life in Wales. You can hear more about us and read our articles here.
We are excited to open up our application process for an Admin Assistant to join our team of volunteers.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking to recruit someone with good admin and organisational skills who has a passion for contributing to the LGBTQ+ community by being involved in the sharing of people’s stories and bringing greater awareness of the lives of LGBTQ+ people.
If you have some relevant administrative and organisational experience and are happy to be part of organising a team of volunteers to make our operation a little slicker, we’d love to hear from you.
In a nutshell:
You’ll have great organisational skills and be able to work reasonably confidently in Google Workspace (primarily Docs, GMail, Sheets, Forms). If you’ve worked in Microsoft packages or similar, you will be able to adapt into Google Workspace very easily as they’re very similar.
You will be responsible for setting up and attending regular on-line LGBTQymru Editor meetings, making a note of actions, chasing progress and monitoring Emails in a shared mailbox.
Will it take up too much of my spare time?
The time commitment would generally be a couple of hours each month.
You will be an essential and valuable part of a team of Qommunity Reporters and Editors, and the time required is minimal and quite flexible for the role. Though we’ll require you to be at regular Editor updating meetings and occasional Editorial Board meetings, everything else can be undertaken in your own spare time.
The regular Qommunity Editor meetings are held on-line for around 30 minutes and Qommunity Reporters are welcome to join to provide updates or to say hello and hear about other developments. As an equal member of the team, you will also be able to contribute your suggestions and ideas if you'd like to.
How do I apply?
So, if you have positive and inclusive LGBTQ+ values in line with ours, want to contribute to the publication of all-Wales LGBTQommunity articles, have good organisational, ICT and admin skills, are happy to work as part of a team as well as under your own steam, we’d love to talk to you.
We aim to get to you within 10 working days from 10 March 2023.
We are diverse group of volunteer Editors and Reporters and we want to reflect the Qommunities with which we connect, support and celebrate. We would therefore be delighted to hear from people from all backgrounds and cultures, our trans* family, and those who have a disability/long-term health condition. Any information you choose to provide about yourself as part of the recruitment process will remain entirely confidential, used for statistical purposes only, and will not be treated as part of your application.
