Perhaps you are looking for a change of location, some adventure, a new challenge....? Was your 2018 New Year's Resolution to do something different? We are making plans for January 2019.....
ServeDirect is looking for new Project Guardians to live on site at WTA for a minimum of one year, starting in January 2019. It's an unusual role to describe in an advertisement, as it is both so flexible and varied - and we try to include the skills and interests of the individuals. Looking back, we know that our first four PGs (Sue and Stan, Johannes and Gé) in Lukomera were and have been ideally suited to the needs of the role for that time. As a starting point, here is an 'A to Z' of the type of skills/attributes that would be most useful. Please also pass it on to anyone you know that might suit the role. The other PGs have all been introduced to us by mutual friends. This is a rather lighthearted list of course - so if you are genuinely interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
