37.5 hpw. 3 year fixed term contract.

Required asap.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the team at Community Action Suffolk, the county's infrastructure organisation for the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector.

With funding from The Big Lottery we are looking to recruit a Good Neighbour Scheme Development Officer for this 3 year project.

Good Neighbour Schemes are local voluntary groups which offer a service in their community for those in need of help and support. The people who need support may be elderly, disabled, single parents and young mothers, temporarily in need through illness or anyone lonely or isolated within the community.

You will provide support to the existing schemes in Suffolk particularly around volunteer recruitment, safe practice and promotion of their work and will engage, encourage and enable other Suffolk communities to develop new schemes.

If you have a passion for working with people, good communication skills and able to act on your own initiative we would like to hear from you!

We are happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments individuals may require in the recruitment process, or on commencement of post.

For an informal discussion please contact Sally Connick. Tel: (01473) 345359.

For more information or an application pack please visit: www.communityactionsuffolk.org.uk or contact Louise Bradshaw. Email: louise.bradshaw@communityactionsuffolk.org.uk

Interviews: 22 July 2019.
