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

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

03 Jan 2022

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 Events Team is one of the most important pillars at Volt. We address questions such as "When and how do we organise a hybrid event?", "What is the best way to choose an event venue?", "How do you prioritize competing project deadlines?", and "What makes an event successful and how do you measure that success?".

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!
