Community Organisation Support Manager (Peer role)

£40,000 per year pro rata (£32,000 actual salary)
Part-time (28 hours per week )
Job description

Do you have a deep understanding of voluntary sector groups?  Are you passionate about inclusive communities and effective systems change? 


Inclusion Barnet is Barnet’s Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisation (DDPO), led by a board and senior management team of disabled people, and we’re passionate about using our lived experience of disability to work towards inclusive communities and greater social justice for all.  This role works with groups from across all Barnet’s diverse communities, and all work needs to be undertaken through an equality and access lens.  Therefore, we’re looking for someone with a demonstrable commitment to the social model of disability and disability equality, ideally with their own lived experience of disability, and an ambition to contribute to a fairer society for all.  We also particularly welcome applications from global majority candidates, who are currently underrepresented in our organisation. 

The successful candidate will lead on delivery of our voluntary sector support activity, working as part of our award-winning Barnet Together partnership with Young Barnet Foundation and Groundwork London.  Managing a team of four, you will ensure we continue a strong delivery of our offer and that we increase membership and engagement, and act as Inclusion Barnet’s Operational Lead within the partnership.  You’ll undertake some delivery yourself, supporting groups with funding applications and more complex governance queries.  You’ll also convene Barnet’s Environmental Network, and attend some key local meetings to provide representation of the sector’s views. 

To succeed, you will either have previous experience of supporting community groups in a sector support role, or solid experience of third sector management, governance and fundraising.  You’ll be keen to coach and develop more junior members of your team in these skills, excited by the challenge of delivering this unique service and keen to build on the success of Barnet Together to date. 

You’ll be a collaborative, coaching manager; a great relationship builder with tact and emotional intelligence, and a champion for the contribution of the sector.  In return, you will become part of a friendly and supportive team, working within a focused but flexible culture, where diversity is valued and you can bring your whole self to work. 

This is a UK based role, and whilst most of it can be done from home we anticipate a need to be in Barnet two to three times a month, for which travel will be paid.  We encourage flexible working to suit your work/life balance preferences where possible.  We also operate a Time Off In Lieu (TOIL) system. 

To apply, please submit your CV with a brief covering letter clearly stating how you meet the person specification.
