Oxford Road Time Bank Coordinator
Oxford Road Time Bank is a community organisation in West Reading, run by a group of local residents.Â A time bank is a way that local people can get to know each other, make friends and help each other out.Â When you do something to help someone else you earn a â€˜time creditâ€™.Â You spend your â€˜time creditâ€™ on getting help from someone else in the time bank when you need it.
We are seeking to recruit a coordinator to help us get more people involved in the time bank.Â Working with the time bank committee and the Lead Time Broker, the job involves talking to people, groups and organisations in the Oxford Road area, spreading the word about the time bank and getting people to join and become active members.Â The post holder will â€˜brokerâ€™ time exchanges between members, organise social activities, support people to start groups and capture good news stories about the time bankâ€™s impact on the local community.
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.
For a job description and details of how to apply, please drop our administrator Lynda Moynihan an email on:email@example.comÂ or give our chair, Catherine Wilton a ring onÂ 07866 610200
Development Leads – Learning Disabilities/Ageing & Older People
Â£35,000 – Â£45,000 p.a. plus pension benefits
As somebody who is passionate about tackling injustice you will already know the issues facing the ageing and older community and people with learning disabilities and youâ€™ll be fuelled with a vision of how things could be different.
We have two unique opportunities that will allow you to be creative in your commitment to equality whilst rolling up your sleeves and working hard to make change happen.
These are specialist development roles, one in Learning Disabilities and the other in Ageing and Older People, which need confident people who are happiest when working on their own initiative to inspire the necessary relationships that can tackle some of our big issues such as housing, support and inclusion.
In return we will offer you a supportive and innovative environment to help you broaden your experience of working in an arena that is both challenging and rewarding in equal measure.
