Wanted…Gig Buddies Project Assistant
40 hours per week (but 5 of those are lunch breaks), permanent contract
Closing date Monday 12th December and Interview date Friday 16th December
An exciting opportunity to be part of the team delivering the Gig Buddies project across Sussex.
A message from Madeline:
‘After four amazing years working for Stay Up Late, I am going to stop being the Project Manager of Gig Buddies at the end of December, to explore pastures new in the field of advocacy (and of course, continue to volunteer as a gig buddy!).
Kate Ogden will be taking over as Project Manager as well as continuing to oversee the project in West Sussex.
This means that we need a new Project Worker to oversee Gig Buddies in Brighton and Hove and East Sussex.”
Our Gig Buddies project matches up socially isolated people with learning disabilities and/or autism with a volunteer who shares the same passions and interests as them so they can go out and have fun together and develop an ongoing friendship.
The person needs to be able to support an incredible inclusive community of people who like fun and friendship, seeing each member of gig buddies as the fabulous individual that they are. If you would like to work in a driven team and are a friendly, positive, organised, self-motivated person, with lots of energy, creativity and enthusiasm, this might just be the job for you.
As well as a conventional application form, we’d love to find out from you about why you’d be great for this job and ‘what makes your heart sing!’ so part of applying for this job will be to make a 60 second video to tell us. You won’t be at all judged on production, it’s YOU we’re interested in – check out the vid that our Storm and Thunder Team made for some more info…
This is also an exciting opportunity to work in a small and growing charity that is run in the way that it wants to see society run in general; valuing and including everyone.
Please note we can’t accept CVs, you will need to complete an application form.
