NJC PO 33-37: £27,573-£30,546
Depending on experience & performance.
12 month initial contract subject to renewal.

The Role: Hulme Community Garden Centre is a leading environmental and
horticultural social enterprise based in inner city Manchester. They are
seeking a dynamic leader to continue the development of our organisation.
You will be a proven leader, fundraiser and relationship builder able to
work at every level. Passionate about the environment and community you
will have an entrepreneurial, results driven mind-set. Strong leadership
and influencing skills are essential as is the ability to be a strategic
thinker and operational manager.

The Organisation: Hulme Community Garden Centre is a unique community led
inner-city horticultural project founded in 2000. We are a not-for-profit
organisation and our mission is to bring the community together through
gardening.
They are fully stocked Garden Centre and Nursery retailing to everyone from
amateur gardeners to allotmenteers, landscape gardeners to City Councils
but we are also a volunteer, education and training hub working with
socially excluded people across Greater Manchester.

Each year they work with over 200 community organisations and provide over
3350 volunteering, training and workshop opportunities to encourage people
to grow their own food, green their own communities (in 2010 they helped to
create 33 new green spaces in the City), lead active and healthier
lifestyles and improve their life chances. They developed Manchester’s first
public green roof and recently completed the build of our straw bale
eco-classroom—another first for Manchester.

In 2011 they were granted an additional acre of adjacent land giving them the
opportunity to double the size of their award-winning gardens and growing
spaces and support thousands more people to work with nature and lead
better lives.

HCGC grows using organic methods, is underpinned by principles of
sustainability and seeks to build social capital in a greener city while
promoting health and well-being.

Using eco-friendly transport their training and education services reach
communities across the city but it is part of their long term vision to
build a city wide infrastructure of community garden centres in order to
foster a city wide movement of driving long-term positive change through
education and training, food-growing, horticulture, volunteering and
community activity.
