Circles Network is a national charity and voluntary organisation that helps disabled and disadvantaged people to be included and take control of their lives. In Reading we have three time banks funded by Reading Borough Council that have been running for over a year. Time banks enable people to make friends and get small jobs done.
We are recruiting two workers to run the Southcote Skill Swap, Katesgrove Time Trade or Whitley Wood Time Exchange. Reporting to the Regional Co-ordinator, the role encompasses identifying and establishing time bank members and working directly supporting each member to exchange skills in the time bank. The ideal candidate will have working knowledge of the Southcote, Katesgrove or Whitley Wood areas.
Ideally you will have experience of community development, and have knowledge of time banking, and an understanding of the issues that socially isolate people might face.
Salary is £18000-20000 pro rata for a 10 hour week, initially for 6 months.
Closing date for applications is 25 July 2014.
The successful applicant will be required to apply for an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
