Men's Shed Co-Ordinator
|Salary||£9.01 per hour|
|Location||Hereford City Centre|
|Hours||12 hours per week|
|Closing date||12 pm on 27 September 2018|
The Men Sheds concept was established in Australia, and has since grown worldwide. The Aspire Men’s Shed was established in 2015 and was one of the first in the Herefordshire area. We support men over the age of 55 with the project.
The project supports men who have experienced life-changing events such as redundancy, retirement, bereavement or mental / physical health or social isolation.
The ‘sheds’ give men a place to meet, be productive and get involved with their local community as well as keeping them physically and mentally active. They provide a safe, supportive and friendly setting where men can socialise, learn new skills and practice existing skills by working alongside each other on community projects. It’s a place for like-minded men to access a workshop-type space which contains tools, work benches and raw materials to construct, repair or finish a variety of projects. It’s a place to chat and enjoy a cup of tea “shoulder to shoulder” and have a sense of wellbeing.
Aspire are looking to recruit a resourceful, practical and enthusiastic Co-ordinator to lead the development of our Men’s Shed project based in Hereford.
The role will involve developing and facilitating the Shed to required standards, developing and delivering a series of practical sessions to small groups of local older men and supporting and motivating a team of volunteers working on the project.
A number of our members are Veterans and we are particularly keen to involve someone with a Forces background. An interest in practical ideas, such as furniture recycling or gardening would be desirable, or an enthusiasm to “roll up your sleeves and get stuck in!”
