An exciting opportunity has arisen at Selby District Council to join an energetic team, working on a range of projects that support communities, residents, and businesses. We’ve some big projects to deliver as the Council looks to make Selby District a Great Place to Live, Enjoy and Grow!
The role is in the Community, Partnerships and Customers Service where we deliver projects around community engagement, visitor economy and arts, heritage and culture. We manage the council’s community grant funding and also attract grant funding ourselves for some great projects like Selby950 and the High Street Heritage Action Zone. We manage the Safer Selby Community Safety Hub bringing a partnership approach to tackling crime and anti-social behaviour. Keeping this work aligned with town centre regeneration projects and the Economic Development and Regeneration Service is part of the role too, so it’s very varied and no two days are the same!
This role will provide administration, minute taking and project monitoring support across the full range of activities. It’s a busy role and we’re looking for someone with a strong administrative background who has good IT skills, is highly organised, able to juggle a high workload and able to stay calm under pressure. There’s lots of engaging with other service areas and partner agencies as well as community groups so confidence in communicating with a wide range of people and an understanding of the mix of public, private and community sectors is essential. Some of the work is sensitive and confidential in nature so knowledge of data protection and appropriate information sharing would be advantageous. Attention to detail, particularly working with budgets, is required.
