This exciting inaugural position for the Network will help ensure that civil society has the tools needed to actively participate in and influence the work of the Christchurch Call. This position will work with the Network to build organization structures from the ground up and engage with current Network members. Someone interested in technology policy and/or multistakeholder governance, and is excited about building something new and facilitating cutting-edge discussions will excel in this role. The Coordinator will wear several hats, including operational and membership engagement. A little more than half of your time will be spent coordinating the efforts of the Network. This will include scheduling and facilitating meetings and events, collating and distributing notes, communications activities like keeping the website updated and writing emails and newsletters, and general stakeholder management. You’ll also facilitate webinars and other external engagement. The rest of your time will be spent engaging with current members of the Network to assess their expertise, capacity and priority interests, with the goal of creating a report on membership with target areas for engagement with current and potential members, and targeted outreach. You should be great at connecting dots, be organised and a good listener with strong attention to detail. This role is largely autonomous, so we need you to be self-motivated and able to manage multiple and busy stakeholders to get things done (in other words you have a natural bias to action and the ability to herd opinionated cats).
