The Community Engagement Lead is a crucial role to help drive momentum during the summer period (May to September 2023) for a new and exciting community-led vision to create an outdoor, community swimming pool in Eastville Park that will serve our diverse local communities.
Led by a steering group made up of local residents, Eastville Park Lido C.I.C. is developing the vision for a truly inclusive, low-impact outdoor swimming pool, open to everyone. A site has been identified and architectural drawings for a low impact building have been created to provide high quality swimming facilities to Fishponds, Easton, Eastville, Stapleton, St George, Lockleaze and surrounding areas.
To ensure that we design the pool so it meets the diverse needs of our local communities, we are now seeking a Community Engagement Lead to develop links and broaden engagement with local people from all ethnicities and backgrounds. This post is funded by a charitable trust to enable us to focus on broadening the engagement of BME/people of colour in outdoor swimming.
Ideally, the Community Engagement Lead will already have strong links within some of these target groups, in the main catchment area for the pool – Easton, Fishponds, Stapleton and Eastville (BS5 and BS16). Demonstrable experience of enabling successful, inclusive community engagement is essential.
The ideal candidate will have experience of creating content for and managing multiple communications channels including social media, website and press/PR. Managing a simple database and associated GDPR requirements, organising and speaking at local meetings, supporting and coordinating volunteers, and building strong working relationships with local partner bodies are also key aptitudes for this role.
Please send an up to date CV or work summary, along with an email explaining how your skills and experience make you the right candidate for this role. Please explain how the job would fit with your other ongoing commitments. Please include contact details for two referees (references will not be taken up before interview).
