Call for volunteers: Become part of the Girl Geeks Team
Manchester Girl Geeks are looking for volunteers to help run events and promote the group in Manchester and beyond. Since 2009, we have organised many successful workshops and dinners at venues such as MadLab, the Museum of Science and Industry, The Cornerhouse and Manchester Metropolitan University. If you’ve enjoyed attending our events, why not become part of the team? Have a look at the details below, and, if you’re interested, sign up to our volunteers mailing list.
We’re looking for volunteers of all ages and backgrounds, who can help out at our monthly events which mostly take place on Sunday afternoons. Experience in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) subject would be great, too.
What are the tasks?
We usually meet an hour before the event to set up everything, prepare workshop materials and refreshments, put up signs, etc. During the event, we need someone to welcome attendees, answer questions, and help out with the workshop content. If you decide to become more involved, you can join the planning team and take up a specific role, such as event organiser, sponsorship liaison officer, marketing officer…
What are the benefits?
First of all: it’s a fun and extremely rewarding experience as you get to learn new skills and pass your knowledge on to others. You’ll meet likeminded women, make friends and build up a network of people from all backgrounds who share a common passion. In addition, volunteering will also look great on your CV, but we’re sure you know that already 😉
What happens if I sign up?
We’ll send you an email with more details about the group in a little information pack. After that, we’ll send you information about upcoming events a few weeks in advance and you can let us know whether you’d like to help out. Don’t worry if you can’t make it – we only need a few helpers every time, so just pick the dates that you’re most comfortable with.
