Volunteer Hub

Welcome to the Volunteer Hub

If you would like to get more involved in the Maker Space but you’re not sure how, browse the table below, pick something and jump in!

There are three types of opportunity, Role, Project and Job. A job should be something that can be completed on a single visit to the Maker Space. A project may require a greater commitment and a role is an ongoing responsibility like a tech or an inductor.

A job or project may have three supervision levels:

  • No Supervision
  • Loose Supervision / co-ordination required
  • High Supervision - need to work closely with the job contact.

A job may also have three skill levels:

  • No Skill necessary
  • Skills will be taught
  • Must already have the required skills
