Unfortunately we are no longer recruiting Hosts. However, you can still employ Organisers in their second year.
Trainees are graduating four times a year and are then looking for a job. Graduates are able to access a Progression Grant of £15,000 to support them in the transition from training to employment. The grant is available for their employer as long as it can be locally matched. So, if you are interested in employing a newly qualified Community Organiser for a year, please let us know and we’ll do our best to match you up with someone who has already learned how to listen, build networks, activate people and support collective community action. For information on employing Organisers please email [email protected]
