REconomy UK Project Manager – freelance contract on offer

Published on July 29, 2015 in Blog

The REconomy Project is one of Transition Network’s most exciting developments, one being picked up by Transition groups around the UK, and increasingly, around the world.

Working collaboratively, we are exploring ways to better inspire, support and connect communities (Transition-branded or otherwise) who are creating new livelihoods and enterprises, and expanding their influence deep into their local economic systems to improve wellbeing for all.

We would like to contract an experienced, flexible project manager to coordinate REconomy Project activity in the UK and ensure delivery of a funded project which is about half way through a well-defined 3 year programme – though we are very open to suggestions about other ways of working and ideas to get even better outcomes from this project.

We are looking for someone who has a strong track record of delivering similar projects; who is enthusiastic about economic change; who will be excited by the breadth and potential of the project; and be able to support and steer an existing, dispersed UK REconomy team to deliver high quality and timely outputs, while helping generate new thinking for future directions. This person will also represent the UK REconomy Project on the international REconomy group.

Our previous REconomy Project Manager is bringing her contract to an end in order to work with a new local Transition project. We have reviewed and reallocated her responsibilities and are now offering an 18 month contract for the supply of Project Management services with a focus specifically on delivery of the UK REconomy Project.

More detail on the contract and how to apply is in this attached pdf: Application deadline is 5pm on Friday 28th August, 2015.

We are extremely grateful to Friends Provident Foundation and the Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation who have funded this project.
