Selby is one of 150 areas in England chosen to deliver Big Local – a community led, 10 year Big Lottery funded programme which helps residents create lasting change through an investment of at least £1 million. Selby Big Local puts residents and their community firmly in the driving seat enabling them to identify local needs, take action and make an impact. Selby Big Local is all about delivering in partnership, making the best of local knowledge, skills, ambition and enthusiasm to make Selby an even better place to live.
It’s a really exciting time to join us. Selby Big Local is coming towards the end of its fourth year, has just secured a building to turn into a resident-led space, and is delivering a whole range of projects across the community. Our challenge is to continue to engage residents and support individuals, groups and local organisations to respond to the issues that are important to them.
Selby Big Local is looking for an experienced, proactive and passionate community development worker with excellent communication and engagement skills, who can develop and support a range of activities and projects that bring the community together to achieve their goals.
Deadline: midday Wednesday 9th October 2019.
