National Committee

Graphics/Design Coordinator - in this role, you will be responsible for visually enhancing our communications (event e-flyers, social media notices, bulletins, etc.) and have the opportunity to input to the longer term visual concept for NAWIC UK & Ireland. You will be collaborating mainly with the National Committee Social Media Coordinators and event organisers. 
News/Bulletin Coordinator - this role will require you to produce very brief bulletins for upcoming National Committee events (usually no more than once per quarter) and a quarterly newsletter which includes a brief round-up of activity across NAWIC regions, news from the National Committee, and any of your own ideas.

North West Committe

Note: The following roles could be 'mix and matched' - e.g. you could be a Regional Treasurer and Event Coordinator.

Chair - your responsibilities as a Regional Chair will be to collaborate with your team of Committee Members (of around 4 people) towards achieving its aims, whether that be hosting social events, organising schools engagement, or anything else you and your team set out to do. As you settle into your role, you will find ways to learn about the needs and opinions of your Regional Members, and to feed that learning into the regional strategy. Experience in leadership is not necessarily required. More importantly, applicants should be passionate about our purpose of building an equitable and inspiring construction industry. Though there are some minimum requirements for regional activity, our volunteers are not expected to devote all their spare time to NAWIC, but encouraged instead to be organised in communicating with their team and realistic about their time commitments.

Social Media Coordinator - for this role, you will be responsible for creating updates on regional activity, e.g. NAWIC events, Committee Members profiles, relevant reposts from our National team, shout outs for school event delegates, etc. As a Regional Committee you will decide which platforms are best suited to your needs, though LinkedIn and scheduling technology is recommended.
