This is a part-time, flexible position and would suit someone who loves working with people, has the initiative and passion to make our time bank a success and who shares our commitment to community, equality and inclusion.Â Â Ideally you will have experience of community development work and good local knowledge.Â Excellent IT and organisational skills are essential.
