I’d love to do this but at this point in my life though I have free time it’s so inconsistent with an almost 2 year old. Hopefully another time. Good luck!

Would be a dream job even if only part time but while I always have MGS open on my computer and check it regularly on my phone, I don't think I participate enough.  I want to but I don't want to sound like a gomer!  😁

I think the Original Post has pretty comprehensive detail on the role but I'm sure if you apply any additional information or questions you have will be answered fully. Good luck if you apply.
