Connecting Communities Networks

Leytonstone Network Manager

(PO4) £38,994 - £41,847 (fixed term until September 2020)

Waltham Forest is a borough that is going places. Diverse and growing in stature every year, the borough has become a great place to work, live and raise a family. As a council we pride ourselves on this, and we’re continually looking at new ways to support local people, improve their life chances and create a new relationship with our community through our Connecting Communities programme.

Waltham Forest was selected as one of only five Integration Area pilots nationally - and the only one in London.  Connecting Communities is more than a programme; it represents a new movement that has impacted across the community, council and partners and our local networks are at the heart of this.  The programme empowers residents to take the lead in their communities and be the catalyst for change; providing  the support and infrastructure required to enable residents to achieve their ambitions.

This is a bold and wide ranging plan, and a key component is our Connecting Communities Network Managers.  Our Network Managers have built an in-depth understanding of our local communities, finding out what matters to them, and most importantly encouraging them to work with us to deliver sustainable improvements, as well as working with key services that are delivering at the local level to ensure they meet community needs.

We’re looking for a Network Manager for the Leytonstone network area who can both harness and embrace the opportunities for local people in this area. This role requires a proactive and confident individual who can develop new ideas, challenge perceptions, and identify opportunities working alongside the voluntary and community sector, local residents and services.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. For more information on this role please download our employment packs, and for an informal chat please contact Sajda Shah by email to arrange a time to discuss further

Deadline for all applications is Midnight 27th October 2019
