Front cover mock up

Leeds Christian Community Trust is recruiting for a Buildings Manager to manage the Ebor Court Office Hub (just off Wellington Street in Leeds).

LCCT hosts this city centre office and meeting space hub as a low-cost resource for small and medium sized community projects and charities which would find it difficult to afford commercially rented offices and meeting rooms.  Providing this base run on a community ethos also combats isolation and fosters good links between projects. The space currently houses 80 desks and 6 meeting rooms over 3 floors.

Ideally you will have experience of hands –on facilities management, have no problem managing  a budget, enjoy taking the initiative from day to day on a variety of tasks and decisions, and can foster great working relationships at all levels.  You would be working as part of a small but committed team who believe in enabling community transformation in Leeds through practical resourcing of projects and people.

LCCT is committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults and the successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced CRB check.

Breaking dependency and developing assets – Principles of an Enabling Community

How can you create an enabling community – where everyone has the opportunity to join in and bring their own experiences and gifts to the table?

Social deprivation, loneliness, a lack of awareness for disability, low-income households – these are all issues affecting people in communities throughout the UK. So how should we respond?

Community Shares - What are they, and how could they work for you?
