Community rail development officer vacancy – Hounslow & Richmond CRP

9 Apr, 2021

The Hounslow & Richmond Community Rail Partnership (HRCRP) is seeking a new officer to help further connect locals with the railway in the Hounslow and Richmond area.

  • Part Time: 28 hours per week.
  • Salary: £20,384 pro rata
  • Three year fixed term contract

This exciting opportunity is offered for a self-motivated individual, with excellent interpersonal skills, to help further connect the community with its railway.

You will work with the chair and Steering Group of Hounslow and Richmond Community Rail Partnership, focusing on the stations between Barnes and Feltham (via Brentford and Twickenham). You will be responsible for developing and delivering an activity plan to:

  • be a voice for the local communities,
  • promote sustainable and healthy travel,
  • involve diverse groups, and
  • support social / economic development.

Working on your own initiative and in collaboration with local stakeholders, you will use your creativity and organisational skills to deliver projects that benefit all involved. Applications are welcomed from all sections of the community.

The ideal candidate will be able to bring both the railway and local communities closer;  in addition to helping boost the local economy, increase interest in rail travel and successfully bid for funding to support the delivery of community focused programmes.
