We are seeking a Cardiff-based Community Promoter for a freelance, 7-month contract.

The Community Promoter will be responsible for engaging with St.Mellons and Trowbridge residents over the age of 60+, sharing The Posh Club with them, and supporting their attendance.

You’ll be a people person with excellent communication and interpersonal skills. You will work collaboratively with a creative team and be a great problem solver, going the extra mile to support the elders of St.Mellons & Trowbridge in taking part and enjoying The Posh Club.

Experience and a passion for working with people are essential. We believe these skills can be gained in many ways, and we are interested in people who might be trying a role like this for the first time.

• Coordinating meetings with potential groups or individuals with support from the Community Producer
• Undertaking local research on behalf of the creative team
• Develop and maintain a local and online presence through sharing activity on social media
