We are looking for someone with a lot of initiative, ideas, and engagement to lead Ladies, Wine & Design Oslo (LW&D) forward. You do not need to work as a designer, but you must have an interest in the design industry, equality, and inclusion, as well as building a community for women* in the design industry. As a part of LW&D you will gain a network of people in the design community, get practical experience in running a small organization, and engage in a positive change in the creative industry.

As our new manager, you will be in charge of the organization and collaborate with the other board members in the daily running of LW&D Oslo. It would be great if you have a strategic and business approach to volunteer work. You do not need to know everything about how to run an organization or how to host events, but it is a bonus if you do.

We have a lot of plans and ideas we want to execute, as well as an upcoming project about the pay gap in the design industry. Previously, we have mainly organized events, but we have many ideas for other projects we would like to bring to life, such as mentorship programs, portfolio reviews, and podcasts. Today, we are five board members, but we want to expand in 2021 to achieve our goals. As our new manager, you will play an important role in shaping the future of LW&D Oslo.

This is a volunteer position, and you should be able to combine this position with full-time work. The work amount varies and can be adjusted according to your schedule. Read more about Ladies, Wine & Design at www.ladieswinedesignoslo.com/.

Do you have any ideas for how we can take LW&D further? We would love to get to know you! Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding the position.

In addition to a new manager, we are also looking for new board members and volunteers to join our team. We need event coordinators, social media people, writers, photographers and so on. We would love to hear from you if you would like to contribute in any form.

You can apply for the position by email. Please include a short motivational letter telling us why you would like to join LW&D → ladieswinedesignoslo@gmail.com

Please note
LW&D is a non-profit organization, run by volunteers. This position is unpaid.
