Current liaison vacancies

by

Following the WCC UK 2021 AGM, we have a number of vacancies for liaisons on the steering committee. Liaison posts are voluntary positions with a renewable term of two years.

Each liaison officer is a person whom members can contact as a first port of call when needing information, advice or further direction. Their duties are as follows:

  • Advocate for the specific group they represent at all WCC UK events and Steering Committee meetings.
  • Ensure specific issues relevant to their group are foregrounded as appropriate.
  • Play a role in organising events specifically focused on the interests of that group.
  • Work proactively rather than reactively to represent the needs of their group.
  • Work with the support of the co-chairs and the steering committee rather than having sole responsibility for action, particularly on difficult issues like those around race and discrimination.
  • Encourage others to become active in the WCC UK.

The following positions are vacant as of the 2021 AGM:
