Job Description

Our work is developed through inter-related projects. We choose priorities every year based on what local people tell us matters to them, and we also undertake bespoke projects that are commissioned separately from the core contract that we have with the local authority.

Brief Description:

- Minimum 21 hours per week
- Salary £23,513 per annum based on 35 hours a week (pro-rata £14,108 for 21 hours)
- Initial 18 month contract, with possible extension until 30 March 2024 subject to further funding
- Flexible with office base in Truro and opportunity to work from home as conditions dictate, with some work at various sites across the county
