Digital Stage Manager Brief

We are looking to commission a Digital Stage Manager to oversee the delivery of our virtual Imagine If... conference and ensure that sessions run smoothly across our digital platforms. The role will be to: 

  • Manage the host Zoom account and have control of the breakout rooms, chat, waiting room, and all other features. 
  • Meet in the Zoom space with speakers ahead of each session to ensure their technical needs are met and can test any aspects of their presentation if needed. 
  • Admit delegates into the session via the waiting room function (in the case of workshops). 
  • Oversee the live streaming to YouTube (in the case of keynotes / webinars). 
  • Provide tech support during the session - launching polls and breakout spaces as needed, monitoring the chat section. 
  • Ensure that the session is recorded. 
  • Troubleshooting any issues during the session. 

We are looking for someone who: 

  • Is confident working with Zoom and YouTube, with experience of overseeing live Zoom webinars and streaming Zoom presentations to YouTube. 
  • Can support others who may be less confident to deliver their session digitally. 
  • Can work with the CBNE team in a remote capacity. 
  • Is available for the entirety of the conference, from Monday 2 November to Friday 6 November 2020 inclusive. 
  • Has relevant Public Liability Insurance up to the value of £5,000,000 valid for the time of the conference. 

Deadline for submission of proposals: 9am, 24 September 2020
