Operations is the umbrella department that coordinates all the onsite infrastructure including DPI, Effigy, Temple, Friday burn, Kitchen, Sanitation, Leave No Trace, Town Planning and Pack Down crews. To say this department is important is an understatement!
We are currently in need of someone to take charge of this department and captain it into Burning Seed 2020, ensuring that all the departments listed run smoothly, making sure work is being done and assisting as needed. The Operations Facilitator is basically in charge of problem solving and project management – if things go wrong, you find out and you fix it. They also review the budgets for each team, make sure receipts are accounted for, act as site manager on-site during the build and attend facilitator meetings once a month to liaise with other teams.
Ideally we need someone with DPI experience to take the helm of this department, and you’ll receive guidance and mentoring from the outgoing Ops Facilitator as well as being supported by other facilitators.
This is a really important role moving forward, and we hope to get someone into it as soon as possible so we have the whole year to get them onboarded and trained into the role. It will also give the new facilitator plenty of time to assemble an awesome crew before the Burn happens!
