About Aberfeldy Big Local
Aberfeldy Big Local (ABL) is a community project, working to make the Aberfeldy area in Poplar, Tower Hamlets a better place to live. ABL is part of the Big Local programme, a 10 year initiative, giving 150 areas across the UK £1 million of Lottery money to make positive changes to their community. Each area forms a partnership group of local residents and decides how to spend their funds. Many, like Aberfeldy Big Local, decide to employ staff to bring their ambitions to life.
About the role
The ABL partnership has set out an ambitious new plan for the next two years, centred around people, places and power. As a highly organised and proactive individual, with a depth of experience in strategic planning and management, this is an excellent opportunity for you to play a key role in shaping the future of this impactful and respected organisation.
Though initially worked from home due to ongoing restrictions, the role will usually be based in Aberfeldy at the new Aberfeldy Front Room community space and also at the offices of the charity Quaker Social Action, in Bethnal Green. You will manage two part time community engagement officers, working across a range of community activities and projects set at Aberfeldy Front Room and across the area.
We’re looking for someone who holds themselves to high professional standards, who prides themselves on building warm and successful relationships with others. You will be practical, creative and willing to be hands on, as well as able to produce high level reports. You’ll have a strong understanding of the nature of community work and a passion for resident-led change that addresses the challenges and barriers that can be faced by low income communities.
