Are you the enthusiastic person we are looking for to take on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help us work with the community of Byker and meet some of the issues they face each day?

We need you to help us to identify what those issues are and how we can best use an iconic building in the very centre of Byker to help address them!

In the first instance, you will be given a year, working three days a week, to complete this work of consultation and discovery, and during this time you will be working with the Lighthouse Project Steering Group to map out the future.

We are calling this project The Lighthouse Project – might you be the one to join us in MINE and help us to realise our hopes and our dreams?

The key purpose of the project’s present phase and thence the role is to;

  • Define the scope and objectives by which St Michael’s and its estate can serve the community
  • Devise a social enterprise strategy, building & facilities project plan, business plan and funding strategy through which the project may be delivered
  • Determine the feasibility of the project to include the financial viability, resourcing, fundraising, governance and volunteering commitment to realise the project’s vision and objectives
  • Prepare the means by which the project might be realised including relationship building with key stakeholders and sponsors, make grant applications, facilities & volunteering management and implementation planning.
