01 November 2017 Registration volunteer needed
Guernsey World Aid Walk

Would you like to help the Registration Co-ordinator, and be a second pair of eyes? In the long term, we’d like to find one or two people who could learn the role so that there is not just one person who can fulfil this function, but at the moment it is a question of needing a double check. Initially the job would be to help check the copy of all the online and paper forms we use and the website pages related to registration, so that it can be kept consistent and accurate. You need to enjoy getting small details correct. This gets done over a couple of weeks at the end of February each year. If you are interested, you could learn some or all of the other tasks performed by the Registration Co-ordinator, which include liaising with Race Nation, our online platform supplier in Jersey, monitoring online registration through March and April and running checks for safety purposes, managing the late entry facility on the day of the Walk, always the first Bank Holiday Monday in May, various other tasks on the day, and preparing statistics using the online database. You would need to be able to use internet, email, Word, and if doing statistics, to manipulate Access or Excel to a limited degree. For more information contact Christine at christineguernsey2014@gmail.com
