This is an exciting opportunity to join us on a new project to support the £98m Healthy Ageing Challenge Fund. If you experienced in supporting learning networks, have excellent stakeholder management skills and a passion for supporting shared learning then we’d like to hear from you.
The UK’s population is undergoing a massive age shift. In less than 20 years, one in four people will be over 65.
The fact that many of us are living longer is a great achievement. But unless radical action is taken by government, business and others in society, millions of us risk missing out on enjoying those extra years.
At the Centre for Ageing Better we want everyone to enjoy later life. We create change in policy and practice informed by evidence and work with partners across England to improve employment, housing, health and communities.
We are a charitable foundation, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, and part of the government’s What Works Network.
The Centre for Ageing Better have been commissioned to deliver a Community of Practice (CoP) for the Healthy Ageing Challenge Fund. The CoP is a learning network that will support shared learning and collaboration across a network of members, which includes those in receipt of Challenge Fund awards, and a wider interested audience.
The Community and Learning Manager will be responsible for supporting the ongoing management, facilitation and development of the CoP and online community hub. You will be responsible for getting to understand the members of the community and co-designing an evolving programme of workshops, webinars, resources and support. You will work with colleagues to source and commission experts to deliver these activities and will work with colleagues to scope, commission and manage an evaluation of the CoP.
The successful candidate will have excellent communication and stakeholder engagement skills and a proven ability to support and deliver communities of practice or learning networks. You’ll have a good understanding of different knowledge exchange methods and will be confident working with third parties to deliver quality, timely work. A collaborative approach, analytical mindset and strong attention to detail are essential.
