About the role
Salary: £25,000 per annum
Hours: 37 per week
Contract: For a fixed term expiring on 31 March 2020
The Project Co-ordinator is an exciting and rewarding role that supports the successful delivery of a community led cancer awareness programme in Leeds.
It does this by recruiting and supporting community volunteer teams, engaging partner organisations and targeting those Leeds residents who are at most risk of developing cancer.
- As a Project Co-ordinator, you will work with local residents and staff to develop and deliver a range of interventions to raise awareness of cancer signs and symptoms and promote help seeking behaviour. You will take part in planning and delivering training, community facing events and campaigns to achieve the project Key Performance Indicators.
- You will be supported to facilitate teams of community volunteers including recruitment, induction, training and ongoing assistance.
- Your work will be diverse and driven by the priorities of the service and the community teams you will work with. You will draw on behavioural change approaches and quality improvement methodology to plan, test and study interventions that make a measurable difference in Leeds communities.
- You do not need to be an ‘expert’ around cancer as full training will be given, although knowledge and experience of working in Leeds and with communities is an advantage. More important is your enthusiasm and creativity and an ability to provide leadership and support to community volunteer teams and other local assets.
- Recruit volunteers and manage them
- Identify people, places and other assets to be part of the work
- Arrange and attend outreach sessions
- Record and report back on a series of measures to demonstrate successful work
- Keep the social media streams updated
- Manage promotional resources
- Liaise with local employers
- Liaise with GPs and other stakeholders
After discussion with your manager, you will also be asked to act as lead in a number of work areas which may be around topics or communities.
This will involve sharing up-to-date evidence, campaign planning, engagement across local networks with staff and communities and taking responsibility for work planning.
The post holder will need to be creative, innovative and flexible.
You will work occasional evenings and weekends.
Your main base will be in Leeds but you will be given the opportunity to travel to other UNI sites where there is similar work to help your own development.
