Local Community Officers (2 Roles)

£24,437 - £28,749 per annum, plus pensions & benefits
36 hours per week
Post 1: Berks, Hants & Dorset Post 2: Heref, Worcs & Warks

Exploring beautiful places with like-minded people to champion special buildings.

Local Community Officers (LCOs) work with communities at around 25 churches by making new contacts and strengthening relationships with supporters to help these special buildings thrive as visitor attractions and venues for events.

Our sites have special history and architecture, so sharing their story is a big part of the role. But they also rely on supporters making the best of them, through tea parties, concerts, displays, housekeeping and day to day admin. Many are still used for services, but they have also found uses as diverse as circus performance spaces, music recording venues, yoga gyms and even a drumming club!

Clubs, societies, universities, employers and neighbours need to know their LCO, so we’re looking for candidates who live within 45 minutes travel time of Southampton, Worcester or Evesham and who can make the most of creative relationships to bring a plan for each church together.

These two posts are supported by specialists, so you don’t need a background in historic buildings or churches. Instead, they represent a fantastic opportunity to get to know nearby communities and fulfil their interests in using these wonderful places.
