  • Participate in local democracy and a different way of creating change
  • Meet diverse communities and people
What You'll Learn: 

Through this experience you will gain some insight into the behind the scenes of running a large-scale event (we will have two thousand people joining!) as well as skills in problem solving and logistical operations that may be useful in your future endeveaours. Furthermore, you will be in the middle of the action of local politics and democracy, and creating change in a way that centers local people and communities.

 

You will also receive a certificate for your role at the event - "London Citizens' 2024 Mayoral Assembly - Logistics team"

 

What We're Looking For: 

We are looking for independent problem solvers who are passionate about create change with communities. In particular, we are looking for people who:

  • Work well as part of a team, knowing when to handle things themselves and when to escale issues further
  • Have (or are keen to improve) logistical support skills
  • Are quick thinkers - able to solve problems independently and swiftly to ensure the action runs smoothly
  • Are excited about supporting the democratic process through community organising

 

You don't need any previous experience in event-planning or logistical support - just a passion for creating change!

 

Speaking multiple languages is not needed but encouraged. We work with diverse communities and having people who can speak multiple languages can help the logistical support on the day.
