A temporary opportunity has arisen for a Community Development Project Officer to work with Spennymoor Area Action Partnership until January 2023.
The successful applicant will support the AAP Co-ordinator to ensure that the AAP is effectively engaging and empowering the communities it serves. You will work with communities and partner organisations in determining local needs and the subsequent development, implementation and evaluation of Area Action Plans. You will be required to support the principles of community development in engaging with local people, community groups and organisations at a neighbourhood level within the AAP areas.
The successful applicant will be required to develop particular project responses to meet agreed actions and to also work with specific task and finish sub-groups where appropriate to ensure that the AAP Boards are aware of local issues and a mechanism exists that enables local action to be facilitated and implemented. The successful applicant will also be required to raise awareness of community development principles with all partners and to support elected members in their community champion role.
Applicants should be educated to degree level (Level 6) or equivalent together with having experience of working in partnership with both statutory and voluntary and community sector partners to achieve tangible results.
The postholder would be expected to work via teams for the foreseeable future but once we move back to locality bases, the postholder's normal place of work will be within the Council Offices, Green Lane, Spennymoor.
Interviews are scheduled to take place via Microsoft Teams on a date to be confirmed.
