ABOUT THE ROLE
We’re looking for a Community Project Coordinator to deliver Love Where You Live, a campaign to tackle fly-tipping in Doncaster and Leeds, specifically focusing on the alleyways between rows of houses.
Using a community-led but closely supported approach, residents in the selected streets will turn fly-tipped alleyways into thriving community spaces, whether this is a garden, a safe play area for their children, or a relaxing place to socialise.
Once the pilot alleyways are complete a campaign will launch to inspire other residents in the town to take action. This could include an exhibition or pop-up alleyway displayed in the town centre, and inspiring and educational events and workshops.
As Community Project Coordinator you’ll take a leading role in working with residents to transform the alleyways, with the Hubbub team on hand to provide an overall framework for the project and designing inspiring materials to encourage widespread uptake of the initiatives.
We’re looking for someone who has:
- Experience in managing projects and/or events
- Experience with running community engagement activities
- Gardening skills
- DIY and crafting skills
- Excellent communication skills with the ability to engage with people of all ages and from
a wide range of backgrounds
- An understanding of the local area in Doncaster and some knowledge of local groups
and organisations (knowledge of Leeds would also be a bonus)
- Enthusiasm and willingness to learn
- A positive attitude and proactive in taking initiative
- Patience and resilience
- Thrifty in nature with creative flair
- An interest in the environment
- Flexibility in availability, as your workload will vary from week to week
- Photography skills (desirable)
- A full valid UK driving license (desirable)
ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES
The requirements of this role will be varied, so your tasks will include but are not limited to:
- Managing ongoing relationships with residents, building engagement, motivation and involvement.
- Co-designing the community spaces to suit the needs of the residents, providing opportunities for their input every step of the way.
- Overseeing the alleyway transformations, where possible promoting and assisting residents to upcycle, fix items, give them away, sell them, take to the tip or arrange a bulky waste collection.
- Deliver or source local people to deliver skill building workshops based on what the residents would like to learn and what is necessary for them to know to sustain their project.
- Provide Hubbub with information, photography and permissions, and quotes needed to help create the relevant supporting materials including social media content to help share the campaign story.
- Collaborate with the Hubbub team to set up and manage an installation or a public display that showcases what residents have achieved and host public engagement events while this display is in situ.
- Set up and implement the agreed monitoring and evaluation methods. This will likely be qualitative data including surveys and interviews with residents as well as a record of outputs including details of events and workshops and numbers of residents.
