We help residents to resolve their neighbourhood disputes through the provision of a high quality mediation service delivered through a network of well-trained volunteer mediators. Mediation is also offered to other clients including individuals and organisations in business, family and workplace settings.

We are proud of our success rate and have seen a 40% increase in the number of case referrals over the last year. As a charity we rely solely on external funding, principally from client organisations in the form of grants and SLAs.

We are now seeking to appoint a part-time Development Officer, to maintain our current income level, to identify and develop new income streams and to assist the board to attain strategic objectives.

This is a new post providing an exciting opportunity for a creative, proactive self-starter to help shape a much valued community service, expand its reach and help secure its future.

Applicants should also be numerate, computer literate and have experience of fund-raising, grant applications/tendering and ideally working to Service Level Agreements and performance targets. Experience of working in the voluntary or local government sectors would be an advantage.
