We are looking for someone who ideally has experience working with community and voluntary organisations.  This can be in a personal or previous work capacity.  Your attitude, enthusiasm and good communication skills are more important than length of experience as we are a supportive team and happy to train and mentor you to help build your skills in community development. 

We need someone who is enthusiastic, able to support groups and most importantly can enable community action to happen. 

An informal discussion with the team about this role is warmly welcomed; please email communityresilience@coventry.gov.uk so we can set up a time to discuss this opportunity with you.
