…from January 1st 2009 to replace David Ince, who moves on, at the end of December to take up wider responsibilities with Ascension Trust, who co-ordinate Street Pastors nationally.

Street Pastors is a Church initiative and has made a significant impact on the night life and night time economy of Southend. In the three-and-a-half years of its existence in Southend, it has established an excellent reputation across all sectors of the town.

The role of Co-ordinator is a demanding one, involving the promotion, management, funding, co-ordination and development of the Street Pastors initiative in the Borough.

As well as fulfilling the Job Description and meeting the Person Specification outlined by Ascension Trust, the Co-ordinator will be expected to take an active part in the Hope for Southend/Love Southend movement, and will be accountable to their Management Group…

It has been decided that the appointment will now be a half-time post, at a salary of £15,000 per annum (pro-rata) for an initial period of 6 months (additional normal expenses will also be reimbursed), to be extended to a permanent, full-time position as, and when, the Co-ordinator generates funding to make this possible. The Job is one which will require a creative, self-motivated individual and would best suite a professional who has taken early retirement, or a younger person with relevant experience who is seeking to establish a career in the Third Sector.

An Application Pack is available from LOVE SOUTHEND/Hope08 Chair, Stuart Kimber at or on 01702 302255.

Closing date for applications is Friday 21st November 2008 and interviews will take place during the first week of December.
