The purpose of this new role is to raise the profile and awareness of Lendology with a view to widening reach amongst target groups, particularly focusing on financially excluded groups within the Bristol City Council area. This role is supported by funding from Big Lottery and is currently offered on either a 6 month full time basis or 12 month part time basis, depending on the requirements of the applicant and may lead to a permanent position.
Lendology is a Community Interest Company and holds the Social Enterprise mark. We work in partnership with local councils to provide finance to homeowners for home repairs, improvements, and renewable energy measures. Our work is designed to provide a social benefit and our Social Impact Report provides full information about how we deliver much more than simply finance. Our service is based on strong partnerships with a variety of organisations from the public, private and charitable sectors.
Having just had our most successful lending year to date, we have ambitious plans for growth and this role will support our plans by driving engagement on the ground. Passionate about people and place, we are now a certified Carbon Neutral organisation and a National Living Wage employer. Our team are committed to continuous improvement, and we nurture talent by providing training and investing in your professional development. With numerous perks such as an employee borrowing scheme, free access to Lifeworks for you and your family, flexible working arrangements, free office parking, 8% employer contribution pension plan (post-probation), and Health Insurance Cash Plan (after 6 months of continuous employment), Lendology is committed to ensuring each team member maintains a positive work/life balance.
Our Vision: To ensure all homeowners have access to affordable finance.
Our Mission: Driven by purpose not profits, our responsible lending delivers a positive impact to homeowners, through understanding the unique situation of every household.
Our Values: Not just words, they are reflected in everything we do, regardless of whether you are a client/customer, partner, or colleague.
Making a Difference: Making a positive difference to the lives of our clients is at the heart of what we do.
Supportive: We help each other, our clients, and partners to thrive and succeed.
Respectful: We are considerate of the needs, abilities and qualities of our colleagues, clients, and partners.
Dynamic: We engender a positive attitude, full of energy and new ideas to continuously develop our services, products, and relationships.
Expert: We are proud of our knowledge and expertise and the positive impact that brings to our clients and partners.
This post is hybrid, being predominantly home-based with travel across the West of England and occasionally, across the other local council areas we serve. Our main office is just outside Taunton, and we will require attendance at the office during your comprehensive induction, team meetings, training days, etc. Therefore, the applicant should have access to transport.
This is a fixed term position, offered on either a part-time basis, 3 days per week (22.5 hours per week) or alternatively, we could consider a full-time, 36 hour per week role over a six month period. We are flexible as to which days are worked and our core hours are 8.30am to 4.30pm, however our Community Engagement Officer will need to be flexible to attend events/training/meetings outside of these hours. This role is subject to our standard three month probationary period.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
