Liverpool Cares is a brand new community network of young professionals and older neighbours hanging out and helping one another in our rapidly changing city.
Our objectives are to reduce isolation and loneliness amongst older and younger people alike; to help improve the skills, connection, belonging, purpose and power of all participants so that older and younger people can confidently navigate the modern world; and to bring people together to bridge social, generational, digital, cultural and attitudinal divides.
We are looking for brilliant people to fill our first two posts, to build Liverpool Cares from scratch, and to engage and involve people in our core programmes. This role, as Liverpool Cares' Projects Officer (Social Clubs), is one of those posts and is key to our success.
It will be your job to design and deliver an exciting and engaging programme of social clubs from scratch – and to ensure they are safe, well promoted and well attended. All of that requires a broad skillset including the ability to lead a room of older and younger people; good organisation to create a range of clubs in partnership with other local voluntary groups and businesses; patience in abundance; and characteristics including an outgoing personality, personal warmth and determination.
You will work closely with our Head of Programmes (Northwest) and a local Liverpool Cares team, in time, of up to three additional people. You will meet hundreds of older people and young professionals all across Liverpool – helping them to enjoy 15 social clubs a month, from dance parties to new technology workshops, and connecting neighbours to their ever-changing city.
You’ll need to build strong relationships, applying good judgement as well as proven guidelines, and ensuring safeguarding, records and storytelling procedures are upheld to the highest standards. You will be able to confidently and clearly articulate Liverpool Cares’ vision and the aims and objectives of the charity so that all participants understand the unique role we play.
In short, you will represent Liverpool Cares and its values, ethos, and unique community network model with surety, skill and a belief in and passion for better connected communities.
When you join our team, you will work partly from our shared office in Liverpool’s city centre, and partly from the communities across the city in which Liverpool Cares will deliver its programmes.
If that sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you.
