Job description

Oasis is looking for someone who can combine an entrepreneurial flair and excellent leadership and relational skills to become the new Community Hub Leader based in Sheffield. 

An Oasis Hub supports the Academy community (students and their families) directly by helping young people and their families to overcome the wide-ranging community barriers that could prevent them from achieving their potential. Examples might include children and community work, food projects, EU settlement support, holiday activities and health projects. Oasis has three Hubs in Sheffield: Oasis Hub Don Valley, Oasis Hub Firvale and Oasis Hub Watermead.

The post holder will lead the development of the Hub supporting the local Academies and wider local community, and to hold the vision of integrated community delivery. We are looking for an experienced Community Leader who will take the Hub Charity to the next stage of development and grow the local community movement through our Christ-centred ethos.

  • planning, resource and coordinate the community Hub plan, measuring impact.
  • developing a team that can grow an Oasis Movement (e.g. engaging staff, volunteers and community workers).

  • experience of leading community delivery and growing projects from start-up phase.
  • innovative use of resources and budget management to maximise funding.
