Job Title: Life Centres Project Manager

Place of Work: Faithworks Wessex
Location of Work: Urban Dorset
Salary: £22,125 - £25,000 (depending on experience)

The position is offered as: Full-time  Permanent

Description of Vacancy:
Faithworks Wessex’s (FW) long term goal is to equip and enable churches and foodbanks to become multi-service “local life centres” that provide local, one-stop, long term practical support and motivation to those facing material, relational and self-esteem poverty. Our vision, therefore is that no-one in urban Dorset will be more than a mile from one of these centres. We have successfully applied for Big Lottery Reaching Communities funding to support this work.
So, now we need a great influencer, ambassador, project manager and emotionally intelligent person who will use their leadership experience, their Christian hope, and their organisational skills to:
• Equip local teams in the identified centres, so that people get out of crisis, are less socially isolated and have stronger self-esteem;
• Create strong networks of local church and community leaders;
• Deliver faith audits, community “conversations”, and new projects;
• Develop the idea so that it can be replicated in other areas;
• And coordinate Faithworks’ existing foodbanks as potential centres.

To apply for the above vacancy please find below the contact details - please do not apply to Bournemouth Council for Voluntary Services
