Website and IT Support Roles

We are seeking volunteers to help with supporting our website and other technology platforms. There are a range of opportunities to help support ABA in this crucial area. We are seeking those with either a willingness to learn new skills, or to expand existing skills, as well as those with existing expertise they would like to apply to ABA. Some tasks could be a great opportunity for trainees to increase their volunteer hours.

These positions would suit someone who would like to contribute to solving 'just one thing' about the website, or who likes to understand or control how technology works behind the scenes. If you have an interest in IT and would like to volunteer some time, we would love to hear from you to work out how we could apply those skills.

All roles would report into the Senior Manager Operations and support would be provided in undertaking each role.

Some key areas we need assistance with include:

Technical Support

Troubleshooting issues users are experiencing with the website and making changes to reduce the likelihood that the issues will happen again. This is a technical role and knowledge of drupal/civi or an ability to learn the system by doing is required. This role would require a commitment of approx. 5-10 hours per week and could be split between multiple people if less time was available. Availability during office hours is desirable.

Technical Support Assistant

Basic technical role responding to system alerts and making updates to ensure website data is up to date. Basic computer skills only with no specific prior technical knowledge is required. This is a perfect role for a trainee looking to increase volunteer hours. It can be done at any time and within any amount of available hours - 2-6 hours per week ideally.

Content Manager

A coordination role where administrative access is needed to change content that various content owners do not have access to. Experience with drupal/civi is useful in this area. Knowledge about who owns which content on the site is necessary so that update requests can be directed to the correct location. The time commitment required would be 2-5 hrs per week

FB Workplace Support

Support with managing user access and providing user support to FB Workplace. Either prior knowledge of FB Workplace or a willingness to learn the system is required. Sharing that knowledge with users who require support as needed is the focus of this role. This is a perfect role for a trainee looking to increase volunteer hours. A time commitment of 1-3 hrs per week would be ideal.

Project Support

Requirements gathering and working in conjunction with stakeholders and technical support team members to ensure that all needs are met by a solution. Requires a high level of knowledge of the organisation and the competing requirements as well as an understanding legal obligations to do with data. This role would require a variable time commitment depending on planned or required projects. A mutually suitable time commitment would be negotiated with the willing candidate.


If any of these roles interest you please contact Paulina Browitt, Senior Manager Operations, at paulina.browitt@breastfeeding.asn.au or on 0408 019 338.
