Job opportunity – make your mark on the local rural economy

Written by Jon Boswell on . Posted in Beds & Hunts Claylands, Greensand Ridge LAG, Job vacancies, Latest News, Rural Development

Do you have experience of project management or development, together with the drive to help develop the local rural economy? Could you bring forward high quality applications to grant funding programmes expected to be worth over £2 million in total by March 2019?

BRCC is seeking a part-time LAG Officer to generate and support applications to its two LEADER grant programmes, on behalf of the Greensand Ridge and the Beds & Hunts Claylands Local Action Groups (LAGs). The successful candidate will have: excellent analytical and communication skills; good interpersonal skills; thoroughness; experience of working with bureaucratic processes and associated software; and an eye for detail. The role will involve independent travel across most of rural Bedfordshire and Huntingdonshire.

We are keen to hear from as many suitable candidates as possible, and so will consider applications for a secondment or to work on a freelance or self-employed basis. There is also some flexibility over the number of working hours.

LEADER is funded by the European Union (see p.2), so the future of the role beyond the UK’s anticipated exit from the EU in March 2019 depends on the outcome of current negotiations.

Application deadline: 9am on Monday 5th March 2018

Interviews: Monday 12th March in Cardington
