We are looking for a person able to drive the development of The Place from the beginning. Someone with vision, focus, real local knowledge, and a desire to grow with the role. Responsible to the Board of Trustees, you will need to be both a strategic thinker, happy to be hands on and a natural leader.
Utilising excellent community development skills, you will engage with core partners, the wider VCS, statutory partners, local groups, users and the wider community to develop appropriate activities, secure funding to ensure sustainability, support the roll-out of new initiatives and foster a real sense of ownership by local people.

It aims to provide a focal point for local residents of all ages to be as well as they can be by: accessing up-to-date information about health and wellbeing; participating in well-being focused activities and support and; getting involved in volunteering opportunities that help the whole community stay well.
