Job description

About Us

Grapevine is a national award winning charity tackling disadvantage, isolation and poverty in Coventry and Warwickshire.

We are a triple action organisation – strengthening people, sparking community, shifting power. We help individual people get what they need to take control, turn their lives around and realise their potential. Collectively we help them spark movements for change in their communities. But we want to get at the root causes of the most difficult problems – not just treat the symptoms. So we work intensively with systems and services like the NHS and local authorities to understand issues together, shift power and solve the real problem – for good.

Strong local people and communities tackling their challenges, taking opportunities, shaping their lives – that’s our mission.

About the role

Our Warwickshire Empowerment Service aims to ensure that disabled people in the county have the greatest possible opportunity to be involved in the design of services. But it doesn’t stop there. We also look at local issues, trying to change areas for the better to allow people to have safe, healthy and well-connected lives.

The work isn’t as straightforward as running consultations. You could be campaigning with an inflatable zebra crossing one minute and the next running an open mic night to help make night-life safer.

Your base will be our HQ in Coventry and you will be mobile in Warwickshire. 18.5hrs p/w, contract until end of March 2021.

About you

To be successful in this role you will  need to be adaptable and creative, making tough subjects easy to understand. We need people who are outgoing and willing to partner with other organisations, forging connections that can help make change.

- 25 days annual leave rising with service to 28 + 12 bank holidays (FTE)
- Flexible working
- Stakeholder pension scheme plus 8% employer contribution
- A friendly workplace with a strong culture of helping people uncover their potential. Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your ongoing development to build your skills, experience and career.
