Time Bank Plus is a small, independent locally-based charity which aims to facilitate people in Twerton & surrounding areas of B&NES to engage with their local community. Our activities range from 1:1 practical or emotional support to co-ordinating groups, learning opportunities, projects and community events. At the core of our work is the principle of exchange, reciprocity and involvement. Our projects help to enhance wellbeing, promote confidence and self-esteem, build skills and capacity and support people in making positive life changes.
Our programme of work is varied and generally includes a range of community-based groups, courses, activities & events, longer term projects such as our lunch club, gardening team, food co-op and ‘Borrow it’ library of things and one-to-one help and support on a more traditional timebanking basis.
The Community Projects Co-ordinator will manage and co-ordinate a number of community-based groups, activities and projects, according to their aptitudes, interests and the needs of the organisation. They will also have the opportunity for involvement in the planning, development and co-ordination of new areas of work.
Working in close collaboration with the Time Bank Manager, the Community Projects Co-ordinator will be responsible for a proportion of the operational co-ordination and administration of the Time Bank and its associated work programme. This will include shared responsibility for the recruitment and supervision of volunteers, outreach and publicity work, administrative tasks and ensuring the Time Bank office is staffed during opening hours.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, resourceful & well organised person who enjoys working with people and helping to create community-based opportunities. You will need to be a good communicator with the ability to inspire and empower other people and with experience of supporting volunteers and delivering community-based projects.
