We have two openings for Co-production Network staff. Our director Mark has decided to refocus his energies on training and facilitation, so we are looking for someone to lead the project from January 2018 and for the remaining 20 months of Big Lottery funding.
Our coordinator Taela will be taking maternity leave (with our heartiest congratulations and well wishes!), so we are also looking for a Maternity Cover Coordinator to support the Network from January to December 2018.
Both posts will be working closely with the current team, the Project Board and Advisory group, and the associate consultants supporting the Network.
For a Wales where everyone is valued as a contributor to the common good
With support from the Big Lottery Fund, a host of agencies and individuals are busy building a new membership organisation that is helping to ensure that co-production principles are at the core of welsh public services and make a real difference to people’s lives. The project has two posts, a Co-ordinator and Director, who are hosted by Cartrefi Cymru Co-operative but who work closely with project partners WCVA and with lots of passionate members and allies in public services, third sector, academia and local communities.
The opportunity has arisen for two enthusiastic and multi-talented people to step into these roles as follows:-
Director – permanent position at least until the end of the project in August 2019
Co-ordinator – temporary position to cover maternity leave throughout 2018
Are you committed to working alongside people (doing with rather than doing for or doing to) and to the principles of equality and mutuality that underpin co-production? Have you the ability to influence and inspire? Have you the ability to work collaboratively and methodically in pursuit of transformational changes in power-relations? Are you an organised doer as well as a good talker and a fantastic dreamer? Then one of these jobs could be for you.

Closing date – 26th November 12 noon, 2017
Interview date for Coordinator post: 6th December, 2017
Interview date for the Director post: 7th December, 2017
