I've been sent news of three jobs as community organisers by GRASS (Gordon Road Street Scheme). For those of you on Facebook, they have a page.
Download an application form.
The three roles were funded by Locality. They will work in the Cliftonville and
Margate Central Wards.
GRASS met with Clive Hart last December to tell him of our preliminary approval for two organisers and he voiced his support for the programme. Since then they have been awarded this increased funding for 3 positions.
In addition to creating 3 new jobs, the comprehensive training package provided by Locality, will see our local organisers meeting organisers from many other areas in the country to share good practice and bring some innovative and practical methods back to Thanet.

The full Job pack is a 13 page document which includes comprehensive details about the philosophical and practical aspects of the Community Organisers programme. The expectation is that all Community Organisers will make use of individual laptops, social media, the internet and
electronic communications whenever possible as they spend time out in the community and use a "hot desk" at the Cliftonville Community Centre and elsewhere.
This is the first group to be funded in Thanet, in this Round 9 of the national programme, along with the North Deal Community Partnership in Deal, and several other areas in the UK.
