Community Impact Bucks Employment Opportunities:

Project Officer - Communities and Projects Team

Part Time; Maternity Cover

This is an exciting opportunity to get involved in and lead diverse projects that will deliver real benefits to communities and vulnerable groups across Buckinghamshire, for up to a year to cover maternity leave.

Community Impact Bucks (CIB) helps communities and charities thrive. Our aim is to make a positive difference for the communities in Buckinghamshire and its voluntary and community sector. CIB is driven to help those organisations that help others. We help at start up, expansion or when in crisis. We make an impact by supporting communities to set up volunteer led projects and through training, one to one advice, volunteer support, on line and ad hoc advice.

The Project Team delivers both time limited and ongoing projects, supporting individuals and communities, with the aim of improving the lives of others through developing strong and resilient rural and urban communities. We provide bespoke support to help develop community projects throughout Buckinghamshire. We work in the heart of the community to develop volunteer driven solutions, and our work often focuses on meeting the needs of the vulnerable and socially isolated. We are the Rural Community Council for Buckinghamshire.

The role will involve a mix of developing, delivering and ownership of projects; helping prepare new bids and actively seeking new opportunities. Projects may involve managing volunteers. The Project Officer will report to Head of Projects.
