IPAF seeks to fill two key member support and recruitment positions

A recruitment campaign is underway to find two key appointments to roles at the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF). IPAF is currently seeking a Membership Coordinator, based at its head office in Cumbria, UK, and a Regional Representative for South Korea, with closing dates for applications in June.

The successful applicant to the Membership Coordinator position will have strong communication skills and the drive and confidence to deliver the very best services to existing and prospective IPAF members, helping to strengthen IPAF’s reputation and global reach.

Experience of working in a membership role, either independently or as part of a team, as well as database management skills are vital for this role, and knowledge of the powered access industry would be an added benefit. Some international travel will be required in this role, and additional languages would also be an advantage.

The Regional Representative for South Korea will focus on providing existing members with a local and improved service and promote member recruitment in the region. A confident communicator who is knowledgeable of powered access and work at height safety is sought for this role, which will be part-time (a minimum of eight days per month) on a self-employed basis.  

Would-be candidates are invited to apply in writing with CV and letter of application in English to Tim Whiteman, IPAF CEO & MD, via jobs@ipaf.org; more details are available on both roles via www.ipaf.org/jobs and applications are open until 17 June (Membership Coordinator) and 30 June (South Korea Representative).
