Finding a volunteer Forum Manager

Post by davethecat » Wed Sep 18, 2019 10:58 am

Just looking for suggestions...

Our phpBB forum is part of a cat charity website, and is hugely valuable to people needing help / advice / support / information. We recently lost our volunteer forum manager/moderator, and have been advertising for a few weeks now for a new volunteer (or two - it could be job-shared) to fill the role, but we are really struggling to find the right person/people!

We could get any number of volunteers for social media roles, but not, it seems, for a forum role.

We are advertising on all the main volunteer sites, plus on our own site of course, but as it's a phpBB forum, I thought there was no harm in asking here, because it would be great if we could find someone(s) with experience of using phpBB (that would save on training time!).

Any ideas how we could find a phpBB-loving, cat-loving volunteer (or two)...?

Hi Paul,

Yes that's us!

We're hoping to find two people ideally, job sharing to cover three-and-a-half days a week each (unless we can find someone who wants to cover it every day). It really only takes about an hour a day, often less, so is a nice job for someone.

I don't know if I am allowed to put a link here to our volunteer vacancies page, so if not please feel free to moderate this bit off! But if anyone is interested, the Forum vacancy is here: [removed]

Thanks!

It's not allowed solicit in this forum. You would be best looking at your membership however, since they seem to be interested in the subject matter.
