We are currently recruiting for the VCS (CYP) Network Officer position and looking for an exceptional individual, passionate about improving outcomes for children and young people and BAPP’s child-centred, inclusive values and keen to support the wider community through support for organisations.
With a recent uplift to funding, the role will include supporting CYPN members to engage in an increasing range of joint initiatives with universities: e.g. collaborating in the Development, evaluation, and research bids and projects; Collaborative Knowledge Exchange initiatives, Public engagement activities and Civic engagement opportunities
There are an additional 9 hours/ week for undertaking community engagement funded for 12 months, increasing hours to 33/week. This will include BAPP Volunteer recruitment, Impact measurement development and support with developing communications & relationships with businesses and awareness raising through meetings & social media.
This is an exciting opportunity to bring your skills and experiences to our small friendly team, building relationships with Higher Education and businesses and develop collaboration for BAPP and our Network members.
You will be qualified to degree level, be a confident and independent worker, able to use their initiative and use innovative approaches to building and developing projects as well as have an understanding of the local area and the third sector. Ideally you will have worked with children and young people but this is not essential.
We are looking for a friendly person to join our team and enable BAPP and the wider network to develop new ways of engaging and working together!
