Baronial Officer Vacancies

We are now seeking applications for the below positions – some are being readvertised having not received any applications.


Baronial Webwright

Greetings!

Do you enjoy perusing websites and referencing online materials? Do you have an interest in content management and information sharing? Think that it’s important for Stormhold to have an online presence that is not solely mediated through social media?

If so, then we have a role for you!

We need a new Webwright for Stormhold.

The Webwright (also known as Webminister) is in charge of creating and
updating group Web pages, monitoring the Stormlist (mailing list) and keeping group communication flowing smoothly.

This role requires:
* current SCA membership and be aged at least 18
* capabilities in Website page creation, HTML, graphics manipulation,
associated site management, associated computer/email support
(this sounds intimidating, but really isn’t.)
* a good sense for both accretion and rapid turnaround of useful
information – it’s the most important part of the job!
* a strong emphasis on keeping current, maintaining and preserving and
expanding existing content, rather than radical redesign or retirement
of existing resources
* very reliable email and internet access

The workload includes such elements as:
* Typically monthly updating of websites, especially group calendars,
events and other notices and other timely material, removing outdated
material while preserving important resources and historical information.
* Reporting to or attending group meetings.
* Notifications to mailing lists, checking lists for notices or comments
and adding to online calendars or to special pages.
* Mailing list moderation: mostly deleting spam and occasionally assisting
subscribers.
* Active monitoring of local discussion and announcement lists is essential,
other lists and relevant social media very desirable. Twice-annual
checking/reporting of page visit statistics and numbers subscribed to
local email lists is desirable.

The successful applicant will be given a comprehensive handover by the
outgoing Webwright.
