“A week of chaos!” you cry gleefully. “No money! No rules! No bed time! No obligations!” and you lock your purse and your calendar and your phone away in the depths of your vehicle and frolick off into the sunset with your shiny friends.
But underneath its rainbow exterior of joyful chaos, there is a group of Very Organised People doing the necessary groundwork to make this pandemonium possible. They make spreadsheets and pay invoices and write stuff and fill out forms, they coordinate the tickets and make sure we meet legal requirements and pay our bills on time.
Sparkly Burnerfolk, I bring you…
THE ENGINE ROOM
“How can I get closer to these incredible Engine Room folk?” I hear you cry with urgency.
WELL, funny you should ask! Because we have SIX AMAZING ROLES available in the Engine Room Department, RIGHT NOW! Let me break them down for you, and if you want to read the position descriptions, just click the link.
Ticketing Lead: Manages the process of selling tickets for Burning Seed, including liaising with internal and external stakeholders and participants. Year-round role, no on-site hours required!
Ticketing 2IC: Helps the lead with the things listed above, in case you’re into a little less responsibility.
Finance Lead: Oversees the financial operations of the organization. You’re gonna want a financial background for this one, we’d love to hear from you if you can do a BAS return, complete a financial report and know what the hell a ‘financial disbursement’ is.
Site Manager Coordinator: If you wanna get your cute little foot in the org door with a very low number of actual hours.. this could be the role for you. The SMC works with other leads to update the Site Manager’s Manual, and works with Facilitators to roster their shifts during the event. About an hour a month, no on-site hours!
Office Manager: Responsible for recruiting, rostering, and orienting Site Admin crew, setup/packdown of the site office, and maintaining site office stock levels during the event. Low time commitment throughout year and during event, on-site a few days before and after Seed.
IT Wiz: Ensures the widely-distributed org peeps can actually talk to each other by managing online communication, also helping us with data storage, app integration, and not falling into the technological dark ages.
If you’re interested in any of the above roles, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us how excited you are. We’re happy to answer any questions, or hook you up with someone who can.
Can’t wait to hear from you!
