Noddfa Community Centre is a dynamic charitable organisation, managed by residents on behalf of the community. It provides a safe space where people, of all ages, can access learning, socialise and receive support.
We are keen to extend opportunities by enhancing provision, which reflect community requirements/needs. Excellent community dialogue is key to achieving this aim, so we must ensure that we develop further opportunities to reach people, across the whole spectrum of life. It is vital that we find a capable, vibrant, pro-active Development Manager who communicates effectively, understands our community, can clearly articulate its aims and aspirations and can translate these into effective, meaningful activity within the centre, thereby maximising its success. The Development Manager will play a key role in ensuring the smooth day to day running of Noddfa Community Centre. They will also be responsible for developing the business, including improving facilities and identifying new opportunities by means of effective marketing, income maximisation, networking, innovative solutions, successfully accessing appropriate grant funding. Working closely with the Trustees and staff, local statutory, voluntary and commercial sector organisations, the Manager will work to ensure the Centre is a vibrant, well-managed facility that operates within a sustainable framework for the benefit of local residents and organisations. The Manager will be given a high degree of autonomy and will be self-motivated. The Board of Trustees, as line manager, will support and mentor the new Manager to aid them in achieving their full potential within the role. We intend for this to be a permanent position, thereby requiring the successful applicant to apply for appropriate grant funding in order to sustain this post year on year. Particular experience and skills we are looking for include:
• Experience of managing staff and buildings.
• A history of successfully securing grants and other forms of funding.
• Sound experience of project management
• Excellent interpersonal skills, with an open, inclusive and encouraging approach
• Able to demonstrate high standards of both service delivery and building management.
