The Village Spotter is a community development role designed to create resilient villages that support their residents most at risk of isolation and exclusion.  The successful applicants will work to increase local assets that support individuals to progress closer to the workplace.

This role is about communicating effectively with a wide range of people to find existing and  developing services and activities in the local area that support individuals in a wide variety of ways.  You will need to build and maintain relationships as well as negotiate with Town and Parish Councils, public and third sector organisations, village halls, volunteers and residents.

You will work alongside communities, groups, other partners, local businesses and services to ensure the best outcome for the participant of the programme.

The Spotter will be a constant point of contact for the communities where the programme is running.  You will need to understand where and when to bring in other services whilst continuing to provide support and encouragement.  You will need to help communities understand and identify for themselves how they can support their residents leaving action plans in place and ensuring sustainability.

You will build capacity in the community to identify new and exciting opportunities for all

You will work closely with the Village Coach as participants move from isolation into community activities.  You will report to the Steering Group of Village Works.
