Do you have a keen interest in research and policy work and would like to develop your skills curating the Volunteering Australia Evidence Bank? We would love to hear from you!
About this opportunity
– Flexible work hours (up to 4 hours per week).
– Time required: initial 3-month appointment.
– Based anywhere but will need to be able to work remotely.
– Participation in occasional meetings (some by Zoom).
Volunteering Australia has developed an internal ‘Evidence Bank’ for use by VA and the State/Territory peak volunteering bodies. The aim of the bank is to store research and other evidence (e.g. policy documents, case-studies, other) on volunteering-related issues for use in our policy and advocacy work.
As the curator of the Volunteering Evidence Bank, you will be facilitating the ability of VA and the network of State/Territory volunteering peak bodies to produce evidence-based policy and advocacy work.
The Evidence Bank is an on-line site (on Sharepoint). The work involves updating the Evidence Bank with new material when it becomes available. It also involves curating the existing material over time to enhance the usability of the Evidence Bank.
We are also interested in developing the Evidence Bank in the future and exploring whether it can be made accessible to others across the volunteering ecosystem.
A keen interest in research and policy work would be valuable for this role, as would moderate IT skills, attention to detail, and someone who has the initiative and willingness to suggest improvements with the future-state in mind.
Volunteer induction and role specific training will be provided.
