Join the Up Our Street team

Post date 3 May 2019


Up Our Street is excited to launch its new place-based project funded by the National Lottery. We are recruiting Place Makers to work with residents in Newtown, St Judes and The Dings over the next two years to create more opportunities for people to get involved in their local community.

3 part time vacancies

Place Makers for Newtown, St Judes and The Dings

Duration: July 2019 to June 2021
Wage: £9.83 per hour

Who are we looking for? 

·      Someone who is rooted in their local community and is passionate about making it a better place to live for everyone. You might already be involved in organising for your community in a voluntary capacity but are keen to develop skills and move into paid work in this area. 

·      You will be good at working with diverse groups of people, someone who likes to get things done, and most importantly an excellent listener. 

·      The hours are very flexible and part-time making it suitable for someone who is not in full-time employment, is a carer, or is involved in other voluntary activities. 

Applicants are expected to produce a personal statement of up to 800 words explaining why this role would be perfect for you. There will also be an informal interview. Please contact tracy@upoursteet.org.uk to apply or if you have any questions.
