posted in: Jobs and Volunteering | 0

Paddington Development Trust (PDT) is recruiting a Project Support Officer to join a friendly and growing team delivering its prestigious community and cultural regeneration project at St Mary Magdalene’s, Paddington. Using and developing their skills across programme administration, finance, communications, and community and stakeholder liaison, they will help this project to make a difference to this part of London.

The successful candidate will be motivated to work on this unique start-up, and be willing to adapt and develop their role as the project evolves. They will have an appetite for a varied role which combines management of internal project systems with outward-facing engagement. They will be highly organised, and a committed team-worker. This job will suit those working or wishing to work in the community, arts, or heritage sectors.

PDT is a registered charity and community-based not-for-profit regeneration company. Formed by local people in 1997, it has delivered a wide range of projects and programmes covering young people, employment, health and well-being, social enterprise, and community development.

St Mary Magdalene’s Church is Grade 1 listed and an outstanding example of neo-Gothic architecture, but is on the Historic England ‘Buildings At Risk’ register. The ‘Mary Mags’ redevelopment project involves repair and conservation of the church, and the building of a new Heritage and Community Wing alongside it. Whilst remaining a place of worship, St Mary Magdalene’s will become a new place in Paddington for community, heritage, and arts.
