Foreward

We are pleased that you are interested in becoming a fieldworker for the ACBM. This guide is designed to:

  • alert you to ACBM policy that must be upheld by all fieldworkers;
  • impress acceptable behavioural standards;
  • provide you with general cultural, etiquette and health information;
  • outline reporting and administrative requirements; and
  • enable you to make the decision to accept or decline the opportunity to apply to be a fieldworker.

This guide may seem to be somewhat prescriptive in its contents. Please don’t be put off by this as it has been developed in the light of ACBM experience and in consultation with experienced ACBM fieldworkers. Unfortunately, errors of fieldworker judgement and practice have marred some potentially excellent activities.

Following this guide may help prevent the repetition of past disappointments.
