Working For Us
Community Development Officer
We are seeking a people person with passion and enthusiasm for delivering high-quality services to vulnerable people. You need to be a team player but can also work on your own initiative. You need proven networking and negotiating skills, a creative approach to problem-solving and excellent planning and administration skills.
As a Community Development Officer, you will provide outreach support services to people with sight loss across Cornwall. You will work collaboratively with voluntary and statutory sector partners, alongside volunteers, to deliver integrated sight loss services within local communities, which are more easily accessible. You will have excellent communication and customer service skills with the confidence and ability to work on your own initiative. You will be based in Truro but spend much of your time out and about in the community, for example, visiting people in their own homes to provide information on specialist equipment and promote independent living.

If you would like to apply, please send your completed application form to email@example.com (please note CVs will not be accepted).
The closing date is midday 28 September 2018. We’ll be interviewing as we go along, so the role may close earlier than advertised.
