You are an enthusiastic and diligent person with an interest in creating positive community change and looking to join a likeminded and efficient team who will help you to develop your skills and add value to the broad range of projects and initiatives at South West Connect.
Your positive attitude, flexible approach and willingness to learn, develop, achieve and contribute to the team will be highly regarded. We have strong processes and resources available to help you make a smooth transition to be a valuable member of our small but highly impactful team.
The primary purpose of this role is to assist with the coordination and delivery, monitoring and evaluation of SWC run programs and activities for young people and their families. Activities include classroom based structured programs as well as external excursions and workshops for groups and large-scale events for thousands of people.
In this position you will develop your skills to allow you to proactively engage with young people and key community stakeholders to identify, develop and deliver initiatives that encourage young people’s active participation in education, careers and civic life and promote their health and wellbeing.
Experience and understanding of working with young people and community stakeholders would be an advantage. Selected key skills include:
If you have basic or limited experience, you may prefer to apply for the “Entry Level | Graduate Role” rather than this “Intermediate Level | Experienced Role”, particularly if you have recently completed a qualification in teaching/training, community/youth development, program delivery or events management or if you have worked in part time roles with transferable skills as the Entry Level position will be more actively guided and mentored by the Senior Projects Coordinator and managed by the Head of Strategic Development.
Please apply as soon as possible, we are actively interviewing suitable candidates via Zoom initially, followed by a final in person interview. This recruitment process will close when a suitable applicant is appointed.
