We are a team of volunteers based in and around Aberdeen responsible for Pushing Out the Boat, North-East Scotland’s magazine of new writing and the visual arts.
The Coordinator/Project Manager role involves project management of both team and the tasks needed to produce our regular magazine.
You would be joining us along with our new editor in time to help manage an entire production cycle from the commitment to go ahead through to publication and launch of a new edition.
You would assign and coordinate tasks with team members, compile a schedule of tasks critical to the agreed timetable, and ensure those tasks are completed timeously.
We are a registered charity (Registered No. SC044919) and you would become a member of our managing committee.
While an interest in the arts would be a bonus, experience in coordination and project management are more important to fulfil this role successfully.
We are a friendly group and the work of the editor and coordinator/project manager is supported by a wider team at and between regular committee meetings.
For more details please contact Roger White, PR Manager at email: firstname.lastname@example.org or tel: 07925 822489.

Volunteers would be taken through how to use the Atom database system and talked with about what goes in the index. They would then be able to go and read the papers on the microfilm machine (which they'll also be taught to use) and record the contents so that others can find information more easily. Someone will always be on hand to help.
As the requirement to be able to use technology increases, many individuals find themselves excluded from the opportunities available as a result of their lack of digital awareness. In order to address this inequality I am looking for digital awareness volunteers, who you would be required to attend local sessions throughout the city showing members of the public how to use and get the best from their own digital devices.
In addition to this, along with other volunteers and staff you would represent Adult Learning at various Digital Awareness events. These sessions and events would be on an ad hoc basis at times convenient to the volunteers.
Good training and support is provided to all volunteers.
A fantastic opportunity to help and make a difference with people and local communities in Aberdeen. All help is greatly appreciated.

We have a charity shop and through this receive items that would fetch a more marketable price on line. Currently we don't have the time to undertake the setting up of the shop front, photographing the items, maintaining, updating and answering questions on the products. We would therefore like someone who can share their knowledge, skills and expertise in E-bay.
The project coordinator will facilitate the digital skills clubs, providing equipment, learning materials and refreshments. Volunteers will come along and help learners, either one-to-one or in small groups, on a range of topics, depending on what learners would like to cover using resources provided by the coordinator.
