The Naval Dockyards Society (NDS) is looking for a Secretary!
The current Secretary will retire in March of 2022, and the Society is seeking applications for this post, to start on March 26, 2022.
The Naval Dockyards Society is an international organization that is concerned with, and publishes material on, naval dockyards and associated activities, including victualling, medicine, ordnance, shipbuilding, shipbreaking, coastguard stations, naval air stations, provisions and supplies; all aspects of their construction, history, archaeology, conservation, workforce, surrounding communities and family history; and all aspects of their buildings, structures and monuments relating to naval history.
The Secretary role is an unpaid volunteer post. It is a NDS member position, so the successful applicant will become an NDS member – if a full-time student their membership fee and future UK travel expenses to attend committee meetings and NDS conferences will be paid by the Society (overseas officers would attend via Zoom). Full-time students would also be paid a small honorarium. Applicants can be studying or interested in any topic, but education, history, sociology, maritime, built environment (architecture, civil engineering/surveying, planning), business and IT studies would be especially relevant; or being a member of another relevant volunteer organization.
To apply for this role, please visit the NDS website. Applications are due by December 14, 2021.
Questions can be directed to the current NDS Secretary, Dr. Paul Brown, at email@example.com.
