Local Trust was established in 2012 to deliver Big Local, a Big Lottery-funded programme which committed £1m to 150 local areas in England. Big Local was designed to be radically different from the outset. Built around a vision of empowered, resilient, dynamic, asset-rich, resident-led communities, rather than conventional top down, time-limited, project-led funding.

We are now developing a national community leadership academy to help residents better recognise and use their knowledge, skills and strengths and empower them to develop new skills and confidence, while providing support around the demanding emotional aspects of volunteering. We anticipate delivering the Academy through a consortium of expert organisations working closely with Local Trust. We have committed £1m to this work over the next three years reflecting its importance to us, and our commitment to making this a high-quality experience for those involved. 

We are now looking to appoint a Project Manager with the energy, drive and expertise to take this work forward and work with a range of partners and Local Trust to turn this vision into a reality.

This is a permanent position though secondments will be considered.
