Permanent

NS9 £29,439 - £31,099 per annum

 

We are now recruiting for someone to join our fast-paced and responsive team as a Community Development Officer. In this role, you will work across specialisms including young people, Gypsy, Roma, Traveller and older persons as well as helping communities respond to the cost of living crisis, providing much needed support to our residents.

You will be working with vulnerable, hard to reach groups across the district to promote and facilitate improved relationships with the Council and to work towards positive outcomes.

The successful candidate will have experience of multi-agency or community development work, will have proven experience in identifying and analysing problems as well as finding solutions and experience of handing conflict or hostile situations.

You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and be able to act decisively and assertively in challenging situations whilst always demonstrating a tactful and diplomatic approach. You will also have the ability to understand the needs of a range of customers and to align your approach and delivery to those needs.

We offer a competitive salary, enrolment in the local government pension scheme, flexible hours, hybrid working, a generous annual leave entitlement that increases with service, a whole host of family-friendly benefits, 1 days’ paid volunteering leave, free staff car parking* and £10/month gym membership at one of our four gyms in the district. You will also be working with a professional, committed and experienced team who are passionate about supporting our communities.

For an informal chat, or more information, please contact Victoria Endersby, Senior Community Development Officer, on 01636 655236.

A well thought through application addressing the advertised essential and desirable criteria for the post will be considered far more favourably than a generic covering letter and CV.

Veterans/family of forces/ex-forces, those in care/care leavers, and candidates who declare disabilities (as defined by the Equality Act 2010) will be guaranteed interviews provided they have demonstrated that they meet the essential criteria of the post as detailed in the Person Specifications on their application forms. 

*Free staff parking is valid until 31st July 2024.

Closing Date: 12 noon Monday 6th February 2023

Interview: 16th February 2023
