Owned and run by our co-operative members for nearly 150 years, Co-operatives UK promotes, develops and unites the diverse range of member-owned businesses, which together contribute over £38bn to the UK economy. 

The Local Project Manager will play a pivotal role in growing employee and worker owned business in the Ownership Hub’s first partner area – Sheffield City Region.

As the Local Project Manager in Sheffield City Region you will lead on an awareness raising, business engagement and knowledge building campaign to support the growth of employee and worker ownership in the area.

The Ownership Hub is a two-year funded programme, which supports the core aim of the #1MillionOwners campaign – to create one million employee and worker owners in the UK by 2030. Your role will help build an evidence base to support this campaign as employee and worker ownership starts to grow in the region.

We are looking for someone who knows Sheffield and the surrounding area well, who is able to manage their own time and workload, and who has a strong interest in creating an inclusive economy and resilient economy.

This is a unique position – sitting in the centre of a number of partnership.
