The National Lottery Heritage Fund has funded the restoration of New Unity’s Grade 2 listed Unitarian Meeting House in Newington Green London N16 9PR, along with the modernisation of its diverse meeting spaces.
Our 18th century Meeting House and its integral Victorian schoolhouse will reopen in early 2020 as a heritage destination and community centre, celebrating the history of ‘rational dissent’ and exploring the lives and ideas of the famous people who worshiped there, and their contemporary relevance to the diverse communities who live in the area today.
This creates an exciting opportunity for a creative, dynamic and personable Community and Learning Manager to develop and deliver our activity programme for schools, families and visitors, and to foster relationships with community groups and other partners. The post is a rare opportunity to shape a programme that will make a difference and build for the long-term.
You will have experience in a relevant role in a cultural or educational setting, and strong experience of collaborating and working with diverse stakeholders, audiences and partner organisations. You will be used to delivering results through volunteers. You will be creative, imaginative and resourceful, with good project management skills, a can-do attitude and an ability to inspire and motivate others towards a shared goal.
An interest in the social and political history of 18th & 19th century would be an advantage, as would familiarity with the provisions of the National Curriculum.
