Looking for the chance to mobilise social and community action in Halifax?

Then this is how you could do it . . .

Trainee Community Organiser (Park ward)
19 hrs p/w
Salary £20,000 per annum (fte)

This is your chance to be part of a fantastic community project in Halifax which aims to increase social action amongst local residents and enable community campaigns, projects and activities which improve life for people living locally.

The name of the project is #LetsGetSociallyActive. It has been funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the Department for Culture Media & Sport through their Place Based Social Action programme. Eight local charities and Calderdale council are partners in the project, which is led by Halifax Opportunities Trust (HOT). HOT will employ two Community Organisers (one Senior and one Trainee), who will be based in Park ward in west central Halifax. The other Community Organiser will be employed by North Halifax Partnership to cover the northern part of the town. The Organisers will be expected to work together, encouraging campaigns and projects that cover both areas as well as working at neighbourhood level.

You will need:

  • Experience of community activism including the core skills of listening, bringing people together and converting ideas into action
  • Knowledge and experience of the community sector
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to work with diverse groups
  • Strong organisational skills and the ability to meet project requirements.

We offer opportunities for ongoing professional development and further training. This post is subject to satisfactory references
