Community Impact Bucks has been chosen to take part in the national Community Organisers scheme, and is starting the hunt for community organisers in Buckinghamshire.
Community Organisers is a government funded scheme which aims to train 5,000 ‘community organisers’, individuals who will work in local communities around the country to bring people together, listen to ideas, build networks and support people to tackle the local issues which are important to them.
Community Impact Bucks will choose 4 trainee community organisers from the area and will host them while they undergo their 51 week training in the foundations of community organising. Whilst they train the community organisers will work in neighbourhoods chosen by Community Impact Bucks in consultation with local partners, where they will develop their skills whilst listening to the community and supporting social action.
Anyone interested in applying or finding out more should contact Community Impact Bucks on: 0845 3890389 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://www.communityimpactbucks.org.uk/news.php/588/are-you-a-good-listener-do-you-want-to-make-a-difference-in-your-community-become-a-trainee-communit
This is an excellent opportunity for someone to gain paid employment in the voluntary and community sector.
