Job description

Following series of strategic and organisational development meetings, St Werburghs Community Association is entering into a new exciting Business Plan period for 2021 - 2025*.

With 2020 challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, such as loss of trading income and increased demands on services, SWCA are looking for an experienced Development Manager to work with the Centre Director, the Team and Board of Trustees to increase increasing the organisation’s capacity, setting up collaboartions & partnerships and establishing a new membership model.

Summary of the role, responsibilities and personal duties

Established in 1971, St Werburghs Community Association aims to manage the Community Centre building, develop its services and ensure it meets the demands, and needs, of local people. In 1999 the Association took over the management of the Centre from the local authority and completed Asset Transfer and an over £1m Capital Project in 2010, which resulted in construction of a four-room eco-friendly annexe, doubling up on the lettable spaces and making the main Victorian building more energy efficient and fully accessible. The Centre is one of Bristol’s busiest, most loved and inclusive community buildings.

In the last 10 years the Centre has grown from strength to strength, developing the facilities, which now include six large multipurpose rooms available to hire on hourly basis, a catering kitchen, seven office spaces, an outdoor seating, growing and play area, an Open Access Computer lab, a café and a central Reception from which SWCA delivers a range of Signposting and Advice services.

Services we offer to meet community needs include weekly cooking and gardening courses, one-to-one computer support, employability support, Tai Chi for Older People, stay and play, food bank service, and much more. There are volunteering opportunities to build skills and promote inclusion, we support local people in taking actions on issues which matter to them and link people to the support they need enabling them to achieve their goals. We also run community events which support community cohesion and counteract isolation.

The Centre is available for private, social and business hire. As a membership organisation, we have around 200 active member groups who use the Centre for faith and cultural activities, training and education, exercise, dance and hobbies, as well as personal development. There are also voluntary and charitable sector members, who serve local people, across all equalities’ groups and multi-ethnic communities.

Experience in enterprise, business set ups, and fundraising are key to this role. Plus excellent written and verbal communication skills; good knowledge of the community business and voluntary sectors and a sound understanding of the different protected groups, of social and community inclusion.
