We are looking for two talented and committed candidates to work as a team and help us deliver an exciting project in Airedale near Castleford. Our Airedale Communities that Work project will engage with residents and deliver activities that improve their health and wellbeing and provide bespoke support to strengthen their skills and secure employment. The roles are complimentary and will work closely to create opportunities for those they engage with as well as developing strong local networks and collaborating with key stakeholders.
The project is delivered in partnership with Yorkshire Sport and the health and wellbeing activator, part funded by them, will work closely with their team in ensuring their Active Airedale initiative is a success. https://www.yorkshiresport.org/what-we-do/in-the-community/
We have also secured European Social Funds from Wakefield Council’s People Enabling Area Transformation (PEAT) project for both posts and will work closely with council officers and the other projects in the programme to deliver positive outcomes for people in Airedale.
You will be enthusiastic, passionate about people and in getting the right result for them. You will be committed to building resilience, able to engage at all levels and share knowledge for the benefit of Airedale. You will have excellent communication skills and be comfortable working with local residents, volunteers and other stakeholders.
You should be comfortable in taking the lead, with an open and supportive style that encourages and supports community participation and volunteering.
All applications must be submitted by 5pm on 7 August to firstname.lastname@example.org
