Community Catalysts is a social enterprise working across the UK to try to make sure that people who need care and support to live their lives can get help in ways, times and places that suit them, with real choice of attractive local options.

Since 2007 we have worked with partners in more than 60 local authority areas, keen to improve market diversity and widen community options. We help people use their talents to care for and support other local people by setting up small enterprises and ventures, creating jobs and volunteering opportunities. We also design and deliver projects that unlock community and individual assets in order to create opportunities for people who need care and support. We run the Local Area Coordination Network.

Community Catalysts has an ambitious aim and we know that we need to bring new skills and experience into our senior team in order to achieve our UK-wide ambition.

Effective communications and public relations is vital if we are to further extend our influence and reach. A recent strategic review has concluded that we need to expand our communications function and we have therefore created the new part-time post of Communications Manager. The postholder will be a member of the senior team and will report directly to the CEO.

The Communications Manager is responsible for developing our communications and public relations strategy and managing the delivery of external communications for Community Catalysts. S/he will have line management responsibility for a Communications Officer promoting the work of local projects. S/he is a member of the Senior Management Team and will be expected to contribute to the organisation’s growth and sustainability.

This is a 15 hours per week role and can be home-based with a UK-wide remit.

Closing date for applications is by hard copy on 18th October 2019 at 12.00pm and interviews will take place on 28th October 2019 in Harrogate.

We welcome applications from people from all sections of the community.
