We are looking for somebody who can work flexibly as part of a small team, helping our small charity grow and develop. The role will be varied, requiring plenty of your own initiative, great communication skills and a mix of both desk-based and on-site work.
We’re looking for somebody we can work with to match our needs with their skills. The tasks and responsibilities that currently need filling – and the skills and qualities we are seeking – are set out below. You need to be able to work on your own initiative and as part of a team, and be keen to progress to full participation in the running of The Green Backyard, including contribution to its strategic development.
At this time we are particularly looking for somebody with skills in fundraising, business development and finance who can work together with existing team members to deliver strategic development and operational support. You will work closely with existing team members, the on-site team, the board of trustees and other volunteers to shape the project as it grows, both in terms of on-site developments, strategic planning and participatory decision making.
Our priority is to create a sustainable enterprise with equity and environmental care at its core. If you want to join us on this journey, and you feel you are a good fit for the skills and qualities we’ve described below, then this could be the role for you.
