- What strategies have you previously used to expand and grow an organisation's membership base? How did you measure the success of those strategies, and what areas did you identify for improvement?
- How have you worked to ensure that your organisation is inclusive of individuals from diverse backgrounds and perspectives? Can you describe a situation in which you successfully increased the representation of marginalized groups within an organisation or community?
- What political opportunities do you think exist within the Spanish context? In this role, what would you do to leverage these?
- How do you plan to build relationships with potential partners and stakeholders in Spain? Can you give an example of a partnership or collaboration that you successfully facilitated in the past?
- How do you plan to manage and organise teams across Spain, especially in areas where there may not be an established political presence? How will you ensure that volunteers and members are empowered and engaged in the organisation's mission?
- Let’s imagine that you are in this role, and there is a major city where there is only one team member who only has one hour to give to Volt per week. The context is favourable because it’s a university town, with a high student population and significant expat community. You need this team to have a meaningful impact for the European elections, and want to grow it accordingly. How do you approach this scenario?
