Vacancy for a Community Led Housing Officer

Cornwall Community Land Trust (CCLT) is expanding its team and offering more support for community-led housing (CLH) project… so we’re recruiting a new Community Led Housing Officer to join our team.

Cornwall CLT has successfully supported local communities solve their housing need since it was first established in 2007. It has helped set up a dozen local CLTs and assisted or delivered 25 housing projects and more than 250 affordable homes across Cornwall and on the Isles of Scilly.

Part of this new project is to recruit post which will become an integral member of CCLT‘s housing team. Although funding will only support it for one initial year, the intention is to make a case and to generate sufficient sustainable income from our services to ensure it becomes a permanent post. The new Community led Housing (CLH)Officer will work with colleagues to support potential and already established CLTs, Housing Working Parties, housing providers and partners to help them to develop new community led housing solutions, such as CLTs, cohousing, cooperatives and self-build schemes.

The CLH Officer will work with colleagues to help groups move towards their ambitions to create the homes their communities need. The officer will be tasked to help make a difference to communities and individuals throughout Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and potentially beyond.

Deadline date for applicants: 12 noon 17th Feb

Interviews will take place during the week commencing 24th Feb
