Making history: Our first paid job!

by | 18 Aug, 2014

Updates on what’s happening at Dean Court!

Just in case you didn’t know you could make history by having a job, let me inform you: Thus far in its four and a half year history, Dean Court Community Association has been an entirely voluntary organisation. Not one of our amazing team have received a penny for their hard work. Currently, the centre is cleaned, the bookings are taken, the doors are unlocked, the cafe is run, the website is updated and much much more by a team of dedicated, hard-working volunteers, to whom the community owes many, many thanks, so THANK YOU if that’s you!

However, it’s time to add something new to the mix: a paid member of staff. This person will have no less love for Dean Court than all our volunteers, they too will be motivated by a passion for all things community and they will be more excited than we are about being our first staff member. I can’t wait to introduce them to you, but we don’t know who it is yet…

Could it be YOU?! Someone you know? A neighbour, a friend?


Here’s the official job advert:
