ESOL Advice Service Advisor -PO1 – salary indicative, subject to evaluation (fixed term for 12 months with possibility for extension)
Waltham Forest is a borough that is going places. Diverse and growing in stature every year, the borough has become a great place to work, live and raise a family. As a council we pride ourselves on this, and we’re continually looking at new ways to support local people, improve their life chances and create a new relationship with our community – to achieve this we’re launching Connecting Communities.
Born from the borough’s selection as one of only five Integration Area pilots nationally - and the only one in London - Connecting Communities will establish innovative solutions to local needs. In doing so we will empower residents to take the lead in their communities and be the catalyst for change, and provide them with the support and infrastructure required to achieve their ambitions.
This is a bold and wide ranging plan, and a key component will be our Service Advisor!
Connecting Communities is more than a programme; it represents a new movement that will impact across the community, council and partners - and the Service advisor will play an integral role. We’re looking for people who can not only handle that pressure, but embrace it. This role requires proactive and confident individuals who can develop new ideas, challenge perceptions, and identify opportunities working alongside the voluntary and community sector, local residents and services.
