Come and work with us

Would you like to help your community?

We’re looking for a Community Builder – one that can work with ethnic communities across Redditch. (The Abbeydale and Woodrow positions that were previously advertised have now been filled).
 
We’re after people who can work in the community, start conversations and bring people together. Although these are planned as full-time roles we would consider job-share or applicants that would prefer reduced hours.
 

The Roles

Community builders encourage a supportive, inclusive and welcoming society. They do this by identifying and building upon individuals’ and communities’ existing skills, talents, passions and energies (assets), to help them become stronger and more resilient. They will do this by:

  • Supporting residents to grow in confidence, enabling them to feel empowered and more connected to their local community
  • Talking to residents to understand what they love about their neighbourhoods and the change they want to see
  • Working with local residents and organisations to identify community assets and strengths
  • Supporting residents using the skills and assets they have to connect and take action through conversation, story-sharing and working alongside them
  • Connect residents to existing or new resources to help them achieve their passions
 

Interested?

Applications are by:

    • Application form or a CV. Either is acceptable. If you prefer a CV it should cover similar information to the application form
    • An equivalent of a ‘covering letter’ describing how you fulfil the person specification. The covering letter can be written, recorded spoken word or video.
