Job Details

Harris Hill are delighted to be partnering up again with Eden Project Communities in search for their new Community Network Developer based in London or the South East of England. Eden Project Communities has UK wide reach and delivers initiatives that encourage public engagement and participation in positive action and create real social capital on a mass scale. Since it began in 2009, participation in The Big Lunch, the UK's annual get-together for neighbours, has grown continually with the number of people taking part last year topping 6 million. Alongside this they deliver initiatives that encourage and engage the public in positive social action and help people across the UK build the skills and confidence to drive positive social action in their communities.

They are looking for a new team member who loves working with people and communities to join their UK wide team of Community Network Developers. A key part of your role is providing a vibrant calendar of events and activities online and offline across London and the South East of England, developing their network of community minded people and building support networks for those who take part in all their activities.

The ideal candidates will have ideally a minimum of 2 years' experience in community engagement and organizing projects (this can be voluntary or paid). You'll have experience of working in the community sector and in developing local networks and have strong relationship building skills. A natural host, you'll be familiar with setting up and running online and offline events that bring people together and can manage multiple activities running in parallel as part of our busy team.

Working for the Eden Project, roles within the Eden Project Communities programme are funded by the National Lottery through The National Lottery Community Fund. This is a fixed term contract to the end of December 2021 subject to funding. The post holder will be based from home within the region and will be required to travel across the territory, the UK and to the Eden Project in Cornwall for key events and meetings.

The closing date for all applications is 1st of December. We will aim to hold the first stage of virtual interviews in the second week of December. Successful candidates will be invited back for a second interview shortly after, so it can be a quick turnaround.
