Job description

We are looking for someone with a passion for and experience in community development, who will work to make a positive and long-lasting impact on the Merstham Community.

Local Conversations is a People’s Health Trust initiative that involves supporting residents to develop a shared vision for their community and take local action on issues that matter to them, ultimately aiming to address the underlying causes of health inequalities in our local community. To these ends, we work closely with a dedicated group of volunteers to design, develop and deliver projects, including a community allotment, mental health support group, IT support, a community fridge, and many others. The identification of needs within the local community and how we can best respond to these is overseen and led by a Steering Group, comprised of residents.

  9. Liaise with other staff to monitor budgets as appropriate.
  10. Maintain a thorough understanding of the strategic threats and opportunities in the context in which the People’s Health Trust project operates in order toto suggest options to manage risk and capitalise on opportunities.
  11. Produce six-monthly reports for funders along with monthly reports for the trustees.
  12. Motivating volunteers to capitalise the impact of our projects.
  13. Aligning projects to the funder’s priorities utilising the programme’s practice guide.
  14. Engaging the People’s Health Trust Local Conversation and Merstham Community Facility Trust.
  15. Networking with local partners to develop and maintain projects.
