East Suffolk Council is an exciting place to work and a great place to make  a real difference to people’s lives, delivering vital services to a quarter of a million people across East Suffolk.

We are looking for the right individual to work alongside our seven Communities Officers until March 2020 (with the possibility of extension if further funding is secured). We welcome applications on a secondment basis - if you would like to be considered on this basis, please include this in your application form. 

You will support a wide range of health and wellbeing, community safety and enabling projects, working with the relevant Communities Officer and a range of partners. One of your main areas of work will be supporting Health and Wellbeing projects, particularly around reducing social isolation and loneliness, mental health, dementia, reducing obesity and increasing activity and carers.

You must be able to form good working relationships with a diverse group of people and have good organisation and project management skills, plus the ability to make an impact quickly.

In return, we can offer great opportunities for training and development and we’ll give you all the support we can to build a great career with our organisation. There’s also a superb benefits package including flexible working options and purpose built brand new office accommodation, as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, pension scheme and free car parking.

To discuss either role please contact Nicole Rickard, Head of Communities on (01502) 523231 or Anita Humphrey on (01394) 444662.
