Our ambition is to be a compassionate Council which puts our residents at the heart of all we do. Barrow-

We are implementing our Council Plan which sets out our vision for our Borough to be a place where people want to live, work and visit.  This will be delivered through three priorities focusing on people, place and prosperity.

This new role is offered on a part-time basis of 22.5 hours per week. Work pattern to be discussed with the successful candidate. A flexible working approach is required as you will need to attend meetings outside core hours.

 

You will establish, develop and co-ordinate the Barrow Borough Poverty Truth Commission, working with statutory, community and resident groups to build an effective Commission to understand the lived experiences of those that suffer.

You must be ready to co-ordinate the overall work of the Barrow Borough Poverty Truth Commission (PTC), including representing the Commission’s work across the Borough and line management of the facilitators. The role will primarily be to ensure the facilitators identify, support and nurture a group of people who have been directly affected by poverty to become testifiers for the PTC to enable key issues to be identified, articulated at a launch event and outcomes developed.  A key principle of the Commission is that people are primary, and the story of each individual is to be respected and valued. Your role will be to ensure that those identified are able to articulate their story to a wider audience of business, public and voluntary sector leaders to influence and bring about significant change in the way the Borough tackles poverty. 

 

The successful applicant will be educated to A level or equivalent, (shortlisted candidates will be required to produce evidence of their qualifications before an interview can take place).  You must have experience of working with people living with disadvantage and relevant knowledge and experience of working with colleagues in the statutory sector and in the voluntary sector.  You must also have experience of handling budgets and project management.

 

The ability to converse at ease with residents and partners providing information, advice and instruction in accurate spoken English is an essential requirement.

 

The successful candidate will be automatically enrolled in the Local Government Pension Scheme and will be required to obtain a Basic Disclosure.
