Minera Community Council is looking for a Community Agent to operate within Minera and surrounding areas. Full training and support will be provided but you must know the area well.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate that they can proactively engage with and support older people in the community, often on a one to one basis.
You must have excellent spoken and communication skills and possess the ability to solve problems.
You must also be able to use a computer and have a basic knowledge of word/ excel, although training can be provided as needed.
The ability to speak Welsh is desirable, but not essential. You must have an understanding of the importance of Welsh Language and Culture

Community Agents work to connect people in their area to the services and support that they need and help older people find their way to activities or services which they would enjoy or find useful.
Making the most of local activities and services is a good way to keep fit, active and independent, but not everyone knows what is available. People with health or other difficulties may need that bit of help to access and benefit from activities and services available to everyone. Community Agents will build relationships with organisations such as the Police, PCSOs, Fire Service, Ambulance Service, GPs, local libraries and housing groups, to ensure that more vulnerable and isolated people have access to the support provided.
Fixed-term until 31 March 2021, but potentially extendable, subject to funding
