Do you have a strong knowledge of accessibility issues? Can you help us to create an inclusive, all-age residential event?
Quakers have a way of life that is built upon the principles of truth, equality, peace, and simplicity. There is a long-held commitment to putting faith into direct action in the world. Some of this is work is done centrally on behalf of all Quakers in Britain and overseen by governance committees of Quakers themselves.
Every three years we organise a week-long residential event for Quakers (Yearly Meeting Gathering). The next takes place at the University of Warwick from 29 July to 5 August 2017. Around 1,500 Quakers and their families will be staying on campus.
You will liaise with participants, the University, our events team, and children and young people's team to ensure that identified needs are well met. You will be well organised, flexible and friendly, with a track record in accessibility.
This is a fixed term contract, up to 10 months, starting in December. While this is a part-time post, the hours are not spread evenly over the contract. There will be periods that need more time, especially around the event, when full time hours (35 hours per week) will be necessary. You will need to undertake frequent travel to London and the University of Warwick and be available to stay on campus during the event.
