We are recruiting a full time Community Builder to work across North- West Croydon (including Norbury Park, Norbury and Pollards Hill, Bensham Manor and West Thornton).
You will identify, unite and help to develop individuals and groups to reach their potential, develop their ideas and enhance our local community.
You will work in communities: bring partners together, share insights from people who are seldom heard and work across the locality to meet the priorities of the Local Community Partnership.
The successful candidate will have excellent interpersonal skills, the ability to connect people to bring about positive change, and a passion to help people overcome inequality and exclusion.
So what is community building? This happens when people and organisations from across the community come together to envision how their ideal community should look. They then begin to develop plans to mobilise all of the community’s resources to achieve their visions.
Community Builder will initiate conversations with residents in the community to identify and work with ‘Community Connectors’ to nurture community led activity and connect them with local assets.
This is a fixed term contract up to 31st December 2024 with an immediate start.
Some weekend or evening work may be required to ensure we are able to reach as many people as we can.
Application Deadline: 24 February. 12pm. Interviews 3rd March
