Would you like to play a key role working on an exciting new Programme being delivered by Cornwall Development Company for the people and businesses of Cornwall? 

We are looking for two Area Facilitators as part of an enthusiastic and newly formed team to deliver CLLD, an ERDF/ESF funded Programme that will deliver investment to some of the most deprived areas of Cornwall. 

CLLD is about supporting local people to take the lead on developing activity that provides sustainable economic benefits in areas of Cornwall that have multiple issues such as social exclusion, very low levels of employment/skills, poor services and unfulfilled or low aspirations. These projects will be developed and will create jobs, develop skills, change lives and create more positive futures. 

The Area Facilitators will support the Area Coordinator in promoting and coordinating activity leading to the delivery of the Local Development Strategy in one of the two CLLD areas. This will include working with the Local Action Group to deliver local growth, prosperity and development in their area. The Area Facilitators will also engage with businesses and communities to help develop and bring forward projects that are eligible for CLLD ERDF and/or ESF funding. 

The role will also involve the publicity and marketing of CLLD (including organisation of meetings/events and social media activity) so excellent interpersonal, presentation and communication skills are essential. This will be a busy and varied role, so the ideal candidates should be flexible, able to multitask and to prioritise workloads accordingly. 

Closing date for applications: noon, 5th March 2018 

The Cornwall CLLD Project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund, European Social Fund and Cornwall Council.
