Recruitment: Community Project Manager


Community Cohesion Performance Project 2009 - Project Manager

Arc has just announced details of an exciting new position for a dynamic and creative Community Project Manager.

The London Borough of Barking & Dagenham is funding a new Community Cohesion Performance Project through a ring-fenced Community Cohesion Fund. Arc is looking to recruit a Project Manager to lead this project who will be based at our offices at The Malthouse Studios in Barking. The successful candidate will initially work 16 hours per week from February/March, rising to 20 hours per week from April until August.
