Job description

About Us

Grapevine is a national award winning charity tackling disadvantage, isolation and poverty in Coventry and Warwickshire.

We are a triple action organisation – strengthening people, sparking community, shifting power. We help individual people get what they need to take control, turn their lives around and realise their potential. Collectively we help them spark movements for change in their communities. But we want to get at the root causes of the most difficult problems – not just treat the symptoms. So we work intensively with systems and services like the NHS and local authorities to understand issues together, shift power and solve the real problem – for good.

Strong local people and communities tackling their challenges, taking opportunities, shaping their lives – that’s our mission.

About the role

Community organising is about building relationships and networks that mean people can tackle their local issues together. As our organisers do that, communities form that are ambitious for their member’s health and happiness, as well as for wider change.

Addressing the bad experiences of young disabled people is a priority for us. It’s a persistent issue that we have helped solve for hundreds of young people. But we can’t reach them all with traditional methods. They need new solutions. That’s why we turned to social action and movement building and set up our young activists group. Now they want with your help to combat youth loneliness – and not just for disabled young people either.

About you

To be successful in this role you will  need to be the sort of person who relishes responsibility, because you’ll have lots of it. You will create and implement a carefully structured work plan that will deliver change led by young people. You will need to be brilliant with young people and brilliant at thinking and working in a planned, strategic way too. You’ll have a flair for fun and doing things differently too.

Benefits

- 25 days annual leave rising with service to 28 (FTE)

- Flexible working

- Stakeholder pension scheme plus 8% employer contribution

- Employee assistance programme

- A friendly workplace with a strong culture of helping people uncover their potential. Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your ongoing development to build your skills, experience and career.
