We’re Hiring: 3 x Community Outreach and Support Worker
If you are passionate about bringing people together to tackle common goals and deliver their ideas, then come and join our exciting social action programmes!
We are recruiting for our resident engagement and social action programmes which work with residents living across Hackney and the City of London. You will be based out in the community to engage, support and enable local residents and patients to deliver local services for themselves, to meet local needs. We support residents to come together to deliver local groups and activities benefit of each other. It could be a book group, film club, exercise class or cooking workshop. Residents from diverse backgrounds and demographics attend these activities together and make new connections, building strong local communities, all working together to make their area a better place to live. People, many of whom are isolated across all ages, and who have difficult life circumstances, are brought together, providing each other with mutual support and encouragement to develop new skills and pursue life goals, and to feel better able to voice their concerns to services.
You will be joining a nationally recognised project, working with a whole range of community organisations and stakeholders including GP surgeries, local Councillors, mental health services, local authorities, to support residents to fulfil their personal goals, make connections with others, and design activities and services that meet local needs.
The roles are mainly based in one of our community hubs and so the post holders need to be self-motivating and confident to work alongside one other person and often alone, with some support from the team members based at other sites.
To apply please complete the application form sections and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions about the role or job application, please call Claire on 07305016611.
