Opportunities

Work for Birmingham Community Matters

We are delighted to be recruiting for two paid roles with BCM, to start in late summer / early autumn 2019.

Firstly we are looking for a Development Coordinator to deliver and develop the model of our small Birmingham charity, which offers free peer-to-peer support to micro community and voluntary groups across the city.

If you are not yet familiar with BCM, please browse our website to learn about our work.

The roles are home based and, to attract the right applicants, the working arrangements will be as flexible as possible. We will support the successful candidates to develop their skills.

The contract is for three years, funded by a Reaching Communities England grant from the National Lottery Community Fund. There is no guarantee that the posts will continue beyond the current secured funding, although BCM will be looking for opportunities to raise further funds.

If you read the role description and feel your experience and skills are not quite ‘there’ yet, please wait as we will soon be advertising for a Development Assistant to work alongside the Coordinator.

You can learn more and find out how to apply by downloading the role description and application form below:

The closing date for applications is Friday 2 August, with a provisional date for interviews set for Wednesday 14 August.

The role description also contains contact details for BCM’s Chair in case you would like to chat informally about the role and where you feel your strengths are.

Volunteer with Birmingham Community Matters

As well as recruiting for paid employees, we are looking to:

* Grow our board of trustees and welcome people with experience of running community and volunteer organisations to be part of our advisory group
* Find experienced helpers to ‘micro-volunteer’ (just a couple of hours every now and again) by offering face-to-face support at our BCM surgeries across Birmingham.

In return we offer you the chance to be part of our evolving charity in its infancy, benefiting from networking and learning opportunities created by our events. As our motto goes: “Everyone has something to learn and everyone has something to teach”.

If you are interested in volunteering with BCM please send an introductory email to info@birminghamcommunitymatters.org.uk, briefly outlining your experience within community or volunteering organisations, and where you may like to help within BCM. We look forward to hearing from you.
