Whittesea Mega Lead Vacancy

Sadly Karen (carkisser) has had to step back from both her GVI Committee Membership, but also as Lead of Whittlesea Mega due to heath reasons. Firstly, we thank Karen for her support and hard work til now, but also wish her well in the months ahead. Secondly, this leaves us with a vacancy for a new Mega Lead and so a new position has also become available.

We are looking for someone with experience and skills in event organisation (large scale). This doesn’t necessarily have to be geocaching events, it can be in other large corporate, workplace, planning conferences or other volunteer events. Mega’s usually attract in excess of 400 geocachers across the country. Other key skills we are looking for is as follows:

  • Experience in leading a team or committee
  • Event planning, logistics or coordination experience
  • Budget and forecasting experience (not mandatory as support will be given)
  • Great communicator and stakeholder management (Sponsors and Councils play a bit part in Mega Planning)
  • A can do, fun attitude to ensure we create the best Mega ever for our community.
  • Willingness to see the Mega Event through (scheduled Nov 2022)

We certainly don’t want to scare you off, so if you are committeed and passionate to giving it a go – please do reach out. It’s okay if you haven’t run a Mega before, you will have a Mega committee to support you but also the Geocaching Victoria Committte to also provide support and advice. We are all one big team.

If you are interested in applying for a Mega Lead role, please email Jo Cox at president@geocachingvictoria.com.au and provide an overview of what strengths you can bring to the team. Please feel free to share any past experiences that may support your application. Applications close Friday 25th March 2022.
