An exciting opportunity has arisen to work with tenants in Belle Isle. You will help them to access activities and services, varying from community cafes run by volunteers, to accredited courses run by Leeds City College. You will assist individuals to bid for new homes or search for jobs; and you will take a lead in helping residents get online and improve their health and wellbeing.
We are offering a permanent, full-time contract (37 hours a week) with flexibility around working arrangements (full time, part-time job share). The job is based in BITMOs GATE community resource centre, and it will also involve outreach around the estate and some working from home.
For a chance to see the type of work you would be involved with, you’re welcome to attend the launch of our Digital Health Hub at BITMOs GATE on Wednesday 19 January from 12pm – 3pm. You would also be able to meet our team and volunteers and take a look around the GATE. For an informal discussion, you can talk to our team managers Carla Yeomans on 07891 278423 (Monday to Wednesday) or Peter Sutton 07891 274237.
