Great job opportunity using digital and mapping to build grass-roots networks

HEAR Equality and Human Rights Network have now advertised the key post supporting an innovative London-based network-building programme that I reported earlier.

The National Lottery Community Fund Reaching Communities are supporting two years of work with four networks that will involve using social network mapping, digital tools and other methods for collaboration. As HEAR announced:

The aim of the project is to co-produce with small and user-led equality organisations in London a system that uses digital tools to build and strengthen their networks, enable better connections for collaboration, campaigning and solidarity, and enhance their voice and influence. The project will also have a key aim of sharing learning throughout the project, building a repository of resources that will be made widely accessible.

The network partners with HEAR are: Consortium (formerly the LGBT Consortium), Inclusion London, and Refugee Council. I’m working with Drew Mackie and Kate White on the technical team.

We’ll be building on the work we’ve done together with the Networked City initiative over the past three years, including the use of SumApp and Kumu to develop network maps. Here’s how that works.

The post is fixed term until June 2021 with possibility of some extension. £28,500 per annum pro rata  (21 hours per week), and based near Kings Cross with travel across Greater London.

  • Deadline for applications: 9am on Monday 19th August 2019
  • Interviews in Central London 5th September 2019
  • Announcement from HEAR with link to Application Form and other information

For ease of access I’ve also posted the Job Description and Person Specification here on our wiki.

Drew, Kate and I will be providing initial training and support.
