Job Vacancy – Community Projects Co-ordinator and Facilitator
About this role
This freelancer role will involve co-ordinating two community projects, and facilitating two small community groups (between 8 – 15 attendees expected at each), most likely on Monday and Tuesday afternoons, initially online but possibly in person later in 2021 if Covid restrictions allow.
The project will involve working with local people in the community, supporting them to create their own performances and come up with their own ideas and goals to build their skills and make a difference to their communities. You will also be fostering a safe, friendly environment for people to form new friendships and support one another, as well as building their confidence and wellbeing. As well as leading two community groups a week, you’ll also be supporting people one to one, being a listening ear and helping them access resources or further training as they wish.
This is a great role for someone who loves working with people, in the community, enjoys facilitating small groups and supporting people to achieve their goals, and empowering others to engage in the arts and build their skills and confidence. You will also be coordinating these two projects from start to finish, and will be able to oversee the drama group’s final performance, and will also be able to share your own ideas of how these projects could develop in the future, as well as having direct input into how the projects develop.
You’ll also spend some time monitoring and doing other admin and evidence/impact reporting tasks as part of the project. You will be supported by a line manager, and aside from the set group times, will be able to do most of the work flexibly either from home or from our office in Seacroft (covid restrictions permitting). This is a six month contract but we hope we may be able to extend that depending on the success of the projects.
An enhanced DBS check is required for this role, if the individual doesn’t have one they will need to obtain one – we can support this process if the freelancer is successful.
Pay: £7140 total for this project, to be paid monthly or quarterly as preferred by freelancer.
Length: This is a six month freelancer contract but we hope we may be able to extend that depending on the success of the projects. We expect it will take about 20 hours work a week for 28 weeks.
DBS Needed: An enhanced DBS check is required for this role, if the individual doesn’t have one they will need to obtain one – we can support this process if the freelancer is successful.
Working patterns: Projects have sessions that run in the afternoons on either a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Remaining working hours are flexible and can be done so from home as required.
