Opportunities for members

When paid or sought-after opportunities are organised by Castlemaine Press, members will be given the opportunity to express interest in those roles1. The process is as follows:

  1. the opportunity will be promoted and Expressions of Interest called for via email to all members and the Castlemaine Press e-news
  2. Expressions of Interest are to include a brief CV and an indication of how you would approach the role or project (maximum one page)
  3. Expressions of Interest will be assessed by a panel made up of 2 Committee Members and 2 General Members (each having the option to stand down and be replaced when they would like to express interest in an opportunity themselves)
  4. The Panel recommends selection to the Committee of Management, and the Committee decides.
