Community Work Ireland: Call for Tenders
Established in 1981 as the Community Workers’ Co-operative (CWC), Community Work Ireland is a national organisation that promotes and supports community work as a means of addressing poverty, social exclusion and inequality, promoting, protecting and advancing human rights and ultimately achieving social change that will contribute to the creation of a just, sustainable and equal society.
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, CWI has been active in supporting responses from the community sector in general and in tracking community work responses specifically. One of the concerns highlighted by CWI work has been the challenges posed by the ongoing restrictions to community work practice. In that context CWI applied for support from the Rethink Ireland Innovation Fund to address the challenge for community work in marginalised communities when normal practice cannot be followed. That application was successful, and CWI now wishes to contract a suitably qualified person to co-ordinate the delivery of the project.
The person will:
- Have a third level qualification in community work/community development.
- Have experience in community work/community development programme design and delivery.
- Have an in-depth knowledge and familiarity with the community development sector.
- Have knowledge of interactive and engaging online training and capacity building forums.
- Have an awareness of the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and on how marginalised communities have been impacted
- Have skills and experience in relation to website management
- Have excellent presentation, communication and writing skills
Tenders should be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Rethink Ireland Tender by 30th October 2020
