This role will oversee the SIG’s social media channels (Twitter, Facebook), coordinate our regular e-newsletter (MailChimp) and help to develop the blog. Other communications could be developed where needed or appropriate to engage new audiences.

Membership of the SIG committee is a voluntary role, which will be taken forward through participation in our monthly SIG group Zoom calls and attendance at SIG events where possible. Time spent on communications for the group is expected to be around one day per month. The role is available on a three-year rolling basis, with a maximum of two terms allowed.

If you would be interested in taking up this role please provide a short CV and paragraph explaining your interest in the role and why you would like to be involved. Applications and any questions can be sent to climatechange@britishecologicalsociety.org.
