Our client helps rural communities to tackle the issues they face, through promoting and supporting community business. Community businesses are enterprises that are owned and run democratically by members of the community and others, on behalf of the community. They come in many forms, including shops, pubs, woodlands and anything which lends itself to community ownership. In addition to developing and safeguarding valuable assets and services, community businesses address a range of issues including isolation, loneliness, wellbeing, work and training.

They are pleased to announce an exciting opportunity to join a national charity and be part of bringing positive change to rural communities across the UK. This Project Manager role will oversee the delivery of one of their major projects that works to inspire rural communities to explore the community business model as a tool to reverse the decline of rural services. As well as providing core services, community businesses bring a wealth of benefits such as training and employment opportunities, enhancing wellbeing as well as tackling issues such as loneliness, poverty and social isolation.

They are looking for a candidate that will bring a wealth of communications, marketing and events experience to the role and, in their Centenary, help them reach more rural communities than ever before.
