Big Local is an exciting opportunity for residents in 150 areas in the UK to use at least £1m of national lottery money over a 10-year period to make a lasting and measurable difference to their communities.
The W12 Together Partnership Board, in association with CommUNITY Barnet (the Locally Trusted Organisation) wishes to appoint a full-time Project Manager on a fixed term contract (an initial period of 12 months) to support local volunteers and residents to implement the Big Local Plan and the management and delivery of its priorities.
Located on the White City Estate in West London and spending at least 1 day per week in our Barnet office this role would ideally suit somebody inspired by enabling local communities to actively change their local area and can communicate this enthusiasm to others.
We are looking to appoint a confident self-starter with experience of project management, in relevant community development work. You will need the analytical skills to track, monitor and evaluate the progress of projects, with the ability to produce appropriate, clear, written update reports. Good IT skills are essential as is the ability to communicate with potential volunteers and the wider community.
Our ideal candidate will be familiar with the local area, have a positive, flexible and can-do attitude. You must have the business skills to ensure W12 Together achieves value for money at all times, rigorously seeking out additional sources of funding to support Big Local Plan priorities. Successful applicants will need to demonstrate a commitment to, and an understanding of equal opportunities, diversity and safeguarding.
Working under the umbrella of CommUNITY Barnet we can offer you training as appropriate to support your own career development.
The job requires the flexibility to meet the requirements of weekend or evening work.
