We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic Digital Inclusion Coordinator with a passion for working to support local communities.
RESPONSIBLE TO: Chief Executive
RESPONSIBLE FOR: Digital Inclusion project
LOCATION: Combination of office working and home working, as required
SALARY: £25,000 (pro-rata: six month contract, for 2.5 days per week)
HOURS: 18.5; secondment considered
Catalyst is a forward thinking and modern strategic organisation, facilitating leadership for the Voluntary, Community & Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector in Stockton-on-Tees
We offer a range of specialist support and benefits to VCSE organisations in Stockton.
Access to digital communications is a key feature of modern-day living, and is increasingly the default means to engage with public services, and also with friends and family. Those who do not have access to such technologies are increasingly at risk of not receiving the services they need, and therefore potentially at risk of mental and physical ill-health and economic exclusion. To address these issues, the Stockton VCSE Digital Inclusion Forum, made up of several organisations in the sector, created a Digital Inclusion Strategy in January 2021.
The Digital Inclusion Coordinator will be responsible for the overall direction, coordination, implementation and execution of the Digital Inclusion Strategy. The post holder will report directly to the Chief Executive and there will be a lot of contact with other VCSE organisations in Stockton, and across the Tees Valley.
You will need to have an enthusiasm for digital communications, but more important will be your ability to network with colleagues across the voluntary sector, engaging them in the delivery of the Digital Inclusion Strategy and identifying opportunities to meet its objectives. A passion for working to support local communities will also be a strong advantage.
We would consider secondments or substantive applications.

Closing date: Monday 22nd March, 9:00am
