Closing date 24 May 2019
Organisation OWLS / Bramley Elderly Action
Location Headingley, Burley, Hyde Park and parts of Kirkstall
Hours Full time
Salary 26,999
Telephone 0113 2361644

We have seen how helping others can lead to helping yourself. We plan to ‘sell’ this approach to isolated / lonely elders living in the Headingley, Burley, Hyde Park, Little Woodhouse and Kirkstall localities. The Community Builder will support elders to help their community by volunteering for or joining local organisations, including OWLS. In doing so, we plan for people to help themselves by increasing their companionship.

OWLS is looking to recruit a Community Builder to deliver, monitor, evaluate and develop this project. The post is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund until the end of June 2021.  The post will require someone who is community minded with the relevant skills / attributes / aptitude and experience of delivering and developing projects in the third sector.  The post may suit someone living in the locality. A job description and person specification is available at CV’s not accepted.

The closing date for applications is 5pm, Monday 20th May. Please submit an application form evidencing how you meet the requirements of the post by email to: (cc)

Interviews will be held on Friday 24th May. Times and arrangements for the interview format will be advised as soon as possible after closing date, but candidates should expect to undertake an engagement exercise with older people in a public setting.
