Community Liaison Officer – closing date 18 July 2017

We are looking for someone with community skills, a can-do attitude and enthusiasm for our area.

Role: Meeting local residents and understanding what BSANA can do to help create a sense of community. Working with the committee members and related organisations (e.g. businesses, faith groups, Reading Borough Council and Thames Valley Police) to drive an events and activities programme. Chasing local residents’ issues.

Qualifications: There are no formal qualifications for the role, but we are looking for someone with links into the community, and the ability to empathise and support residents as well as to interact with other organisations. The role requires communication skills, with access to IT and with a basic knowledge of Word and Excel, and some project management skills. The role involves working with a full range of people. A basic disclosure (DBS) certificate is not a requirement but is beneficial.

Role duration and the future: At the start there will be a chance to meet with the outgoing community liaison officer and you will get additional support as you get acquainted with the role. The role is initially probationary for 3 months and then until 15 July 2019, which is the length of our grant.
