Call for Volunteers

Do you want to help make RSECon24 happen? We are looking for volunteers to join our team and help us deliver the eighth annual conference for Research Software Engineering! The conference is taking place online and in-person in Newcastle between the 2nd and 6th of September 2024.

What will I do?

In-person volunteers participate in a wide range of tasks which help us deliver a successful conference. Primarily, you’ll act as a first point of contact should any delegates need assistance during the conference, making sure everyone feels welcome and valued.

To learn more about the role and related tasks, please see our volunteer role description.

What skills, experience and attributes do I need?

We ask that you are friendly and enthusiastic about creating a warm and welcoming environment for a successful conference. You should also be willing to work as part of a team.

If you have specific skills and experience you think might be particularly useful then we would love to hear about this when you apply. We will do our best to align you with a volunteer role that suits you.

What benefits do I get from volunteering?

  • Opportunity to meet people in the RSE network
  • Gain valuable organisation experience
  • Complimentary entrance to the conference and dinner(s);
  • Opportunity to attend some sessions you are interested in;
  • An amazing t-shirt to represent the RSECon24 team! (this is optional due to sensory sensitivities)

I’m interested, what’s my next step?

The deadline for volunteer application has passed. Successful applicants will be informed by the 21st of June. If you have any questions about #RSECon24, please email us at [[email protected]]
