Co-ordinators for Parkview and Cranbrook Climate Taskforce (PACCT)

Tower Hamlets, London

We are looking for community-minded local residents who would like to help make the area round Cranbrook and Parkview Estates a more supportive and connected place to live, and who care about tackling climate change.

As a PACCT co-ordinator you will help residents learn about, explore and take climate action together, forming a new community climate action group – the Parkview and Cranbrook Climate Taskforce. You will do this by:

  • building connections with and between a wide range of residents across both estates;

  • creating a regular space (online or in person when safe) where residents can meet; share ideas and learn together about climate solutions; support each other in taking climate-friendly actions at home; and create and launch long-term community climate projects together.

You should be organised, pro-active, have some experience working in or with community groups and be able to collaborate effectively in a small team.

Ideally we want to recruit residents from Parkview and Cranbrook Estates or the immediate area, but will consider applications from people living further away if you are already connected to either estate or can demonstrate exceptional suitability.

Volunteer

Volunteering at Wen is a hugely rewarding experience. Volunteers gain unique experience in one of the UK’s only feminist environmental organisations. 

Everyone who works for Wen has real responsibility and an equal voice within the organisation. You will enjoy a varied work experience, and we always encourage our volunteers to set and meet their personal development goals.

Previous Wen volunteers have gone on to paid jobs at organisations such as Sustain, Women’s Aid and Greenpeace.

“In an organisation of this size there is real scope to exercise initiative and make significant contributions to Wen’s aims. The team are always receptive to new ideas and supportive to volunteers, who are treated as valued and vital. I was able to build my skill set without compromising on ethics, which was really important to me.” – Georgie Johnson, Media & Communications Volunteer, 2014
