We need a multi-tasker to help get us online. Engage our BAME LGBTQI members to transition from physical events to discovering exciting virtual possibilities confidently whilst respecting safety, anonymity and our community intersectionalities.

What will you be doing?

We need a tech savvy, multi-tasker urgently. We would value your guidance and expertise to move us online so that we can continue to provide support to our beneficiaries by engaging them in virtual safe online event spaces.

We will provide an 'induction' in areas you need as we appreciate this is a rather niche and small field. We will support you and work with you as you need to ensure that the transformation of our physical world to one of a virtual space is one that continues to reflect our values; a warm welcome, friendly, respectful and supportive, and also one that reflects our organisation's unique, pioneering qualities as a leader in this community.   

We need specific help with the following (if not all, and some jump out for you, please get in touch):

  • Advising and setting up appropriate platforms for live ‘virtual’ events
  • Engaging our members through a variety of digital channels 
  • Inspire confidence with members who are not confident online eg, games / questionnaires
  • Identify free/ minimal cost promotion platforms to grow our social media and mailing list 
  • Improving our newsletter design and/or content
  • Demonstrating our values with respect to safeguarding frameworks around confidentiality, anonymity, vulnerable adults, data & GDPR in a digital context. 
  • Developing models which work into a medium-term strategy to continue engagement and support to our members appropriately (within context of covid19 / later re-opening of bars/club) 

We would love a digital expert who can:

  • Help us clarify / test the needs wants and wishes of our members during Covid19 
  • Review our activities and how we deliver and monitor new events 
  • Identify the tools and platforms that are right for our organisation
  • Measure outcomes and contribute to revision of our future business plans (minimum 6-12months)
  • Translate analytics and feedback into plain English to support organisational resources, maximise capacity, and sustainability. 
  • Advise on avenues for digital development eg, grants, recruitment and longer term support. 

What are we looking for?

We need a Volunteer with either lived experience and/or understanding or experience of the basic needs of BAME LGBTQ+ people. With this in mind, we are looking for someone who:

  • Has the ability to quickly grasp the needs of our organisation and members / service users
  • Will be confident, open and ask if they don't understand requirements
  • Has experience of social media platforms, good practice and working with organisational values and boundaries.  
  • Understands our limited capacity and resources as a small non-profit organisation.
  • Can grasp and adhere to our values and safeguarding with regard to all services and communication with members.
  • Can translate tech jargon to us and support us to use recommended tools effectively
  • Can analyse outcomes data and either write up or contribute to basic reporting for our organisation's internal use.
  • Is adaptable in relation to what works/might not work and able to problem solve  
  • Pays attention to detail to ensure a high quality of outputs

What difference will you make?

With your help, we can continue to run events online, albeit on virtual platforms. Our physical events celebrated who we are, promoted social interaction, nurtured friendships and provided a stronger sense of identity and being part of a community. Our activities helped to reduce the isolation and hopelessness experienced by many BAME LGBTQI, and by addressing the intersectionalities (additional identities and inequalities based on eg, race, faith, gender, disabilities).

With members we raised issues of inequality, spoke at events to raise awareness, contribute to policy and build on partnerships with external organisations / charities in order to better serve our members.  

Adapting our activities to a virtual space will enable us to adapt and survive during Covid19, to scope new possibilities, activities and ways of working. We need help to identify, and put in place reviewed structures to ensure the sustainability of our organisation and to regenerate during this difficult and challenging time.

  • contribute to our sustainability by helping create new, innovative events online
