Voluntary Sector Development Adviser (Funding), Spark Somerset

Location - Sedgemoor

We’re looking for an enthusiastic self-starter, who has experience of fundraising and community development and really understands the vital role that the voluntary sector plays in our communities.

You’d be providing advice and support to groups across Sedgemoor, organising forums and workshops and developing partnerships with other community networks. You will also be leading on the development and coordination of the Spark Funding Advice Service across the County. It’s a really varied job where you’ll definitely have the chance to make your mark.

Salary is £25-27k pro rata, 25 hours a week, but there’s flexibility around the days you work. You’d be home-based (ideally in Sedgemoor), but would be out and about across the District much of the time.
