Coordinator (jobshare): Help us build a better economy!

We’re very pleased to have funding from Barrow Cadbury for our Localising Prosperity work over the next two years to enable us to advertise this post. Please do forward on to anyone who you think might be suited to this role.


Vacancy: Coordinator (jobshare) Localise West Midlands

Salary: £23,749 pro rata

Hours: 15 hours per week (negotiable)

Location: Digbeth, Birmingham

Deadline: 12 noon on Thursday 3rd September 2015

LWM works towards social justice and sustainability through localising and decentralising our economy. We do this by bringing people together to explore ideas and take action, and by research and consultancy.

LWM has developed a strong track record on this and as part of our development we are seeking someone to share the role of coordinator. The coordinator is our lead role, responsible for strategy, development and delivery, reporting to our board and working closely with our associates.

You will be passionate and committed to fairer, more decentralised and less unequal economics, and to the role localisation can play within that. You will be keen to help to create an ongoing, exciting role leading an organisation that crucially bridges the gap between community and mainstream economics.

You will be jointly responsible for delivering the third phase of a momentum-building, groundbreaking project under the name of Localising Prosperity, funded by Barrow Cadbury Trust. Flexibility within and alongside this project will enable you to draw on wide-ranging expertise of the Board and membership to develop strategies for LWM to thrive over the longer term. After the initial fixed term of 1.5 years, the length and remuneration of the post will depend on the efforts of yourself and your fellow coordinator.
