Senior Community Engagement Officer x2
Location: Denham, UB9
Contract: 3 year fixed term contract (with scope to extend)
Salary: Circa £25,000 per annum
Hours: Full or part-time considered
Summary of role: GRACE, or 'Project Groundwater', is an innovative Defra-funded partnership programme which seeks to improve understanding, raise awareness, and increase resilience to groundwater flooding across Buckinghamshire - and here at the organisation they're delighted to have recently been appointed as the community engagement lead.
Working closely with the Project Manager and existing community teams, as a Senior Community Engagement Officer you'll have the opportunity to draw on co-production principles to develop bespoke community engagement plans which will enable effective working with local residents and community groups, as well as working in partnership with voluntary organisations, local authorities, corporate organisations and others to help deliver improvements across designated pilot communities that have been impacted by groundwater flooding.
Through your engagement with local communities, you will generate interest, support and participation in the GRACE programme whilst breaking down barriers which may typically hinder resilience to groundwater flooding. By joining the project right from the start, you'll be able to use your expertise to plan for and use a range of engagement techniques to help foster support for, and involvement in, the project - with a focus on face-to-face engagement where possible.

They have been at the forefront of social and environmental regeneration for over 25 years, and today the charity has a simple mission: to create better places, improve people's prospects, and promote greener living and working.

This vision drives the work that the organisation do. Each year they deliver over 100 innovative projects, tackling the biggest issues facing our communities and creating real and lasting, positive change.
