Uttlesford Community Action Network has a fixed-term vacancy for a Community Responder to support residents with requests received via our Community Response Hub

Covid-19 has affected all aspects of our society along with the current cost of living crisis. There has been profound disruption to people’s lives and livelihoods and a significant impact on people’s physical, and mental health as well as their wellbeing.

Uttlesford Community Response Hub has been established in response to these needs and we are therefore looking for a highly motivated, practical individual to provide support, signposting, and engage with residents and communities in specific tasks whilst connecting them with health, the voluntary sector and other social services or support such as
volunteers to ensure that all Uttlesford residents in need get the support they require.

The successful candidate will be working alongside our other Community Responder. We are looking for someone who has good practical and people skills. This role would suit someone with a hands-on approach and will involve driving to different locations across West Essex, so access to own vehicle is essential. Training will be given to those unfamiliar
with the health, social care and voluntary sectors.
