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 is currently creating a new plan with the local community for the remainder of the Big Local programme until 2026. It is undertaking extensive community engagement to ensure it involves all communities in the area.
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. Your role will be to operationalise the plan, continuing to involve the local community and working alongside the ABL partnership board.
You will manage a small team; two part time community engagement officers, a community organising & regeneration officer, and a worker who runs our open space tearoom several mornings a week. The ABL premises is on a street scheduled for redevelopment later this year, so relocation will be one task within the remit of the new manager.
We’re looking for someone who holds themselves to high professional standards, who is passionate about enabling resident-led change. You’ll be adept at multi-tasking and will be able to switch from being local and hands on to servicing the more strategic needs of the partnership board. You’ll have a strong understanding of the nature of community work and of the challenges and barriers that can be faced by low-income communities.
