The Good Neighbour Scheme Development Officer is responsible for providing effective development support to Community Lincs' countywide network of established and emerging Good Neighbour Schemes, and to work with communities across the county to assess the need and desire to set up new Schemes.

The role requires an experienced professional with a track-record of working proactively within communities and engaging volunteers. You will have the necessary drive, enthusiasm and creativity to deliver support to Good Neighbour Schemes across the county and to identify opportunities for the development of new Schemes. We require a team-player and an excellent communicator for this role and someone who is confident and able to make judgements unaided and to work independently and proactively within the community.
