Redbridge Equalities and Community Council is a well-established and hard-working equalities organisation with its roots in community relations and race equality work, based in Ilford, and working mainly in the London Borough of Redbridge.
We are looking for someone with relevant skills and experience to take forward our work on hate crime and community engagement and cohesion. On hate crime, they will be able to build on RECC’s pioneering community-based approach, working with our Community Witness and Support Team and supporting hate crime victims both individually and through mutual support groups. Much of the recent focus of our community engagement work has been through the Redbridge Equalities Forum, and they will have the opportunity to steer its development into a post-Covid world. And on community cohesion they will have a key part to play in the development of a proposed major new initiative in two of Redbridge’s most deprived and divided areas.
This is a challenging agenda, the more so for a part time worker, and their highest priority initially will be to work with the Trustees to find the funding needed to enable the post both to become fulltime and to continue beyond March.
