We are looking to open up the position of Diversity Community Pot Coordinator that would run from now until the end of October.

The ideal person for this role would be someone who qualifies for a stipend and already knows the CoLab ecosystem well. Someone who is a self-starter, understands the policy and is able to explain it to others. They must be able to invite people into making their applications within the limited time-frame left for this year and keep in communication with applicants and prospective applicants along their journey.

The role requires collaboration and coordination between circles and working groups to identify where there is potential for a grant or stipend applications to be encouraged and is supported by the Project Manager who will provide onboarding and training support.

Within this role you will be required to keep to timescales as set out by the Diversity and Decolonization Community Pot Policy – being an active slack member in the CoLab space would be helpful and advantageous to help the successful person within this role.

We anticipate this position will be paid on an hourly basis on an equitable wage rate and will require 15 – 20 hours time over the the course of 2024.

The position will be active until the Diversity Community Pot is exhausted and will be reopened at the start of the project year again next February.
