Migraine Australia is entirely volunteer-run and led by people with a lived experience of migraine. Our board is an operational board as we currently have no staff, yet we do have an army of over 100 volunteers. Due to recent government project funding, and success in some of our core advocacy goals, we have decided to restructure and expand our team.
ABOUT THE POSITION Migraine Australia operates under an operational board. Each director on the board leads a working group of volunteers, who work on a certain area of our activities. The role of Assistant Director, is working closely with their relevant board members and helping to manage the area of responsibility.
The Assistant Director - Facebook role works with the Director of Support Groups to coordinate and manage a network of over 30 local area support groups and currently 3 national groups on Facebook. This role would suit someone with great organisational skills and experience managing Facebook groups.
The Assistant Director role will support and learn from the Director, with the intention being that they could brief the board or manage the activity of the team should the Director need some time off to manage their migraine. You will oversee other team members as required.
- Experience in social media scheduling or management
- Experience leading teams of volunteers or other leadership roles
- Familiarity and comfort with online tools such as Slack, Workstreams, Google Workplace, Zoom and Facebook.
- Lived experience of migraine required
- Commitment to the purpose, goals, and values of Migraine Australia.
People living with significant migraine are encouraged to join the team and should be confident that we get it and do provide the full level of flexibility required so you can manage your migraine.
If you are not sure you can handle these leadership roles, just volunteer for the team at migraine.org.au/volunteer and you can try it out without any pressure or expectation.
