Workshop Coordinator – Freelance

Decriminalised Futures are looking for someone to join the project’s core organising group to help coordinate and deliver a series of interactive workshops. The workshops will use storytelling tools to deliver political education around issues that intersect with and impact on sex worker lives and experiences. This will be a freelance position that can be done from anywhere in the UK.

Main tasks include:

  • Coordinate the scheduling, planning and delivery of a five week creative workshop series aimed at sex workers in the UK, beginning late April.
  • Work closely with the Project Coordinator and Workshop Facilitator on workshop scheduling.
  • Set up and run the course registration and application process, including designing participation and selection criteria.
  • Act as a point of contact for participants, including coordinating access to workshop sessions and support costs for participants, responding to participant needs and requests during the workshop series, and attending closely to accessibility.
  • Contribute to writing information and promotional materials for the workshops.
  • Attend the workshops in order to provide practical and technical support where necessary, and to ensure smooth delivery.
  • Attend to the available budget in collaboration with the Project Coordinator.
  • Use social media to provide updates and information about the workshops.

Other tasks:

  • Communicating with the rest of the organising collective about different aspects of the project.
  • Regular phone or zoom meetings.

Requirements:

  • Experience working directly with sex workers, including familiarity with political sex worker movements and organising in the UK.
  • Demonstrable experience planning and delivering participatory events.
  • Demonstrable experience in prioritising participant accessibility for workshops, events or learning.
  • You will need to be reliable, willing to work collaboratively, confident in working independently, and capable in your communication.

Contract length is March – July 2021. Full payment is £2,100. The expectation is that you will do on average around one day a week of work during this time – during the weeks the workshops are live you may need to be more flexible in your availability. You are in charge of managing your time, particularly in relation to deadlines. Your main point of contact will be the Project Coordinator who works 2 days a week, and there is an additional volunteer based working group who can provide support when available.
