eLN is looking for volunteers who have a passion for our industry – and skills to support that passion – who would like to give up a little of their valuable time to give a lot back to our community.

This year we are more focused than ever and are looking for individuals to take on the following responsibilities:

  • Events management
  • Mentoring
  • Marketing
  • Technology support

You must be a full eLN member or Industry Partner representative to apply for these positions.

From an industry perspective, becoming an eLN Director is a unique opportunity to help to run your professional network and contribute to the wider industry. From a personal perspective, it will enhance your profile and widen your personal network. It is also an opportunity to develop your leadership, communication and organisational skills at a strategic level. You don’t have to be in a senior position already to apply but you do need experience of the industry.

This is a voluntary position and as such will require you to dedicate time each week to support the smooth running and growth of the network. You will be required to attend monthly Board meetings online (approx 1 hour: UK working hours) as well as one annual Board meeting in person (travel costs will be covered). In between these meetings, you will be responsible for managing your own time to deliver against your tasks as part of your role on the Board.
