We’re recruiting – Project Support Officer – Administrator

White Rock Neighbourhood Ventures (WRNV)…a locally rooted developer based in Hastings that brings disused buildings into use and turns them into mixed use spaces where local people can live, work and thrive.

About you
• You’re driven, energetic and passionate about people, place, community and heritage.
• You’re a natural organiser and have an eye for detail
• You’re a strong communicator and effective and professional at building relationships
• You thrive in transforming environments and are capable of adapting to change.

About us
WRNV is a locally rooted social enterprise developer. We transform difficult and derelict buildings into capped-rent homes and workspaces. We create affordable space for living, working, learning, leisure and community action.

We promote encounter, collaboration and community self-management. We squeeze our projects for maximum social impact for local people through life-changing opportunities (jobs, homes, enterprise support, training, social networks) and through place-shaping
opportunities (influencing and making real changes in the immediate neighbourhood), especially for those who usually miss out.

WRNV has a proven track record through the redevelopment of Rock House and is now in the process of transforming the 35-years derelict Observer Building into a beacon of community-led regeneration. We are a core partner in the forthcoming Trinity Triangle Heritage Action Zone.

WRNV, and its subsidiary housing management company Living Rents, are part of an ecosystem of organisations with shared values and common goals. This includes Heart of Hastings community land trust and we expect all the properties we develop to end up in the freehold ownership of the CLT in perpetuity.

As the name suggests, Ventures is an agile and adaptable organisation designed to be able to take risks that others shy away from but to manage those risks in order to protect both financial stability and social value. We experience high levels of uncertainty and are continually adapting to changing circumstances, acute threats and exciting opportunities.

The two roles:
We are recruiting for two support roles with opportunities for career development. We are a company that are proud to invest in their staff and we work hard to develop and provide colleagues with the skills they need for personal career growth and progression.
