Oxford Road Time Bank Coordinator

Oxford Road Time Bank is a community organisation in West Reading, run by a group of local residents.  A time bank is a way that local people can get to know each other, make friends and help each other out.  When you do something to help someone else you earn a ‘time credit’.  You spend your ‘time credit’ 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.  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.  The post holder will ‘broker’ time exchanges between members, organise social activities, support people to start groups and capture good news stories about the time bank’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.   Ideally you will have experience of community development work and good local knowledge.  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:lynda.oxfordroadtimebank@yahoo.com or give our chair, Catherine Wilton a ring on 07866 610200
