Well, 2017 was a busy year for us here in Swansea University. Not only did we engage in a number of events, including a seminar for LGBT History Month, and hosting and organising the 2nd Annual LGBT+ Inclusivity in HE Conference, we also implemented some plans to formalise our network structure, forming a new committee. The roles are currently being advertised, as follows:

 

  • Marketing and Communications Officer
  • Secretary
  • External Outreach Officer
  • Events Officer (2 positions)
  • General Officer

 

This is a valuable opportunity to get involved in a leadership / cross-faculty role, which is essential for career development for both academics and Professional Services staff. The Network will be a friendly and encouraging group in which to develop these skills.

 

Roles are assigned for two years in the first instance. Committee members will be required to work proactively, deliver actions by agreed deadlines, and to work together in an environment of equality, trust and respect.  The network will meet on a regular basis (approx. every 2 months) and members are required to attend meetings and events wherever possible, contribute to discussions, and undertake a fair allocation of work. We expect members to be able to commit 2-3 hours every week to the role.

 

If you are interested in applying for a role, please email Cath Elms C.L.Elms@swansea.ac.uk  with the following information (up to 500 words per question):

 

  • Your name
  • Role applied for
  • How will you be able to add value to the Network in this role?
  • What skills do you have that are relevant to the role?
  • What is your ability to commit time and energy to the role?
  • Any other comments to support your application.

 

The deadline for applications is Friday 12th January 2018.

 

If you have any queries about the roles, please get in touch. If you would like to apply for a role but have concerns about not receiving support from your line manager to attend meetings, etc, please get in touch as we may be able to assist with this.
