Examples include supporting people who want to set up a self-help group or support to an existing community centre or community food hub/social supermarket.  The role is exciting and varied, and no two days are ever the same.

We are looking for someone who ideally has experience working with community and voluntary organisations.  This can be in a personal or previous work capacity.  Your attitude, enthusiasm and good communication skills are more important than length of experience as we are a supportive team and happy to train and mentor you to help build your skills in community development.
