  • Look for enrolling, engaging and making grow volunteers, both newbie and experimented ones, in activities and projects from the very beginning in their design and definition up to their conclusion and follow-up.
  • Ensure the self-sustainability of projects, so partners and volunteers can become fully empowered and assume major or full initiative in upcoming related activities. This can allow exploring other collaborations which their entry cost may be too time-consuming for volunteer profiles.
  • As far as there is no other profile involved, favor and lead that experiences and activities where involved may eventually contribute to indexable, open-access scientific or academic publication.
  • Coordinate with other profiles in order to ensure a correct management of the organization, a suitable internal and external communication, without actually assuming these tasks, but especially by pointing any aspect or repercussion linked to any ongoing and future projects.
  • Explore and advise the Board about any new source of funding that can safeguard both the sustainability of projects and of the very organization. Help, write and/or coordinate in the paperwork associated to grants and other sources of funding.

Time allocation[edit]

  • 20%. Community and volunteer engagement and growth. Online and offline design and discussion of activity plans, internal trainings and wiki personal development plans. Support and promotion of Wikimedia social meetups or related events.
  • 40%. Partner outreach and collaboration. Arrange and hold meetings with partners, design together with them common actions, support joint activities and ensure a follow-up from them for warranting a long-lasting impact.
  • 30%. Activity design, documentation and research. Sum-up and review experiences with volunteer and partners for designing better projects and metrics in the future.

Communication is through a suitable email alias with the full Commission and an instant communication group (Signal group) shared between the Board and the employee for daily purposes.
