Vacancy: Co-Lead Community (d/f/m)

Vacancy: Co-Lead Community (d/f/m)

22 Dec 2021

Two open positions

Because a "New Europe" needs cooperation, we make sure that everyone interested in the Volt movement finds their place and that the strengths of all Volters are brought to bear in an ideal way. To this end, we establish sustainable structures and provide guidance. We promote local and online communities and offer knowledge management at all levels of our movement.

Since Volt sees itself as a participatory party, the Community Team is one of the most important pillars at Volt. We address questions such as "How do we ensure that all members can get started quickly and feel comfortable with Volt?", "How can Volt members contribute their skills to appropriate projects and find out in time that their support is needed?", and "How can we organise ourselves if we become 10,000 members?".

Our team is currently strategically reorganising itself and is looking for reinforcement in various areas - feel free to take a look at our other vacancies!
