Streatham Action is recruiting!


Streatham Action is receiving grant funding over the next eighteen months for our "Active Streatham" project.   This aims to build active community participation and volunteering in Streatham&;s community groups, improve networking between them, and to deliver projects that get more local people actively involved in making Streatham an even greener and more sustainable place.

To ensure that this can all happen as soon as possible, we are recruiting for a part time paid post.

Deadline for Applications: 17:00 on Friday 18th September


Active Streatham Co-ordinator


This is an exciting role for an enthusiastic and independent community organiser on the ground in Streatham. The post-holder is tasked with reaching the huge range of community groups in Streatham, helping them engage with regeneration in the area, and gathering information about their activities.


Armed with this intelligence, the post-holder will then need to promote the groups and their activities effectively through both a revived website and direct contact at public events and meetings, and on the streets. Streatham Action requires someone who is comfortable with both on-the-ground community engagement, as well as efficient back office work and reporting.

The hours are a flexible two days per week over the full life of the project, although we expect in the first six months it will be three days per week with other additional days as needed and in line with funding limits. Some evening and weekend working will be required for meetings and events.

This is a contract post at £150 per day through to 31 March 2014, reflecting the delivery timetable for the Mayor’s Outer London Fund projects.

To apply, please submit a CV and covering letter which details how your skills and experience meet the points outlined in the knowledge and experience sections of the person specification included in this pack. Please also be aware of the competencies given in how you present your response.

Please send your CV and covering letter by e-mail  to
