About the role
Pimlico Million (PM) is a community project, making the Pimlico area in Westminster a better place to live. PM is part of the Big Local programme, a 10 year initiative running till 2026, overseen by Local Trust, giving 150 areas across the UK £1 million of Lottery money to make positive changes to their community.
Following on from local consultation, the PM partnership has set out an ambitious new plan for the next two years. They are now looking for an energetic and organised manager, with a deep understanding of community development work, to play a key role in bringing their plans to fruition and of supporting the partnership to think creatively and strategically about its legacy for the Pimlico Million area. The Big Local programme offers a unique opportunity in community development; balancing some direct delivery of services alongside an exciting locally focused grant giving programme, working alongside the partnership board to bring about long-lasting impact.
Some working from home is possible but there is also a new office available at the Ebury Edge development near Victoria station, with space for the manager and for the two, soon to be recruited, community engagement officers to use as a base.
We’re looking for someone who holds themselves to high professional standards, who prides themselves on nurturing warm and successful relationships with local communities, partner organisations and key local stakeholders. Alongside these leadership qualities, you will be practical, creative and willing to be hands on – we’re looking for someone who relishes the opportunity to be out and about spreading the word about our work. You’ll have a strong understanding of the nature of community work and a passion for resident-led change that addresses the challenges and barriers that can be faced by low income communities.
