Health Promoter and Events Organiser

Common Ambition Bristol (CAB) is a community powered project for African and Caribbean heritage communities in Bristol. Our aim is to encourage people to test for HIV and be in control of their sexual health as well as reducing HIV stigma. 

We are looking for a person to take on a paid role as an “Health Promoter and Events Organiser” to assist the CAB Project Coordinator in the planning and promotion of events that are to be delivered to the different communities the project is working with. By already having strong links with African and Caribbean heritage communities in Bristol, your remit will include identifying community groups, designing an event (which could be either one off or on going) that will help achieve the project’s aims.  You will take on the full responsibility for organizing the event, i.e. seeking an appropriate venue and working with a budget but also have the full responsibility of the promotion of the event and ensuring it is well attended. An example could be organising a day event for women centred around sexual health and empowerment; or maybe linking into an already formed men’s group to arrange a one off session or perhaps organizing a film night with a panel of speakers.  The list is endless and we hope you will bring your own creative ideas! 

**Please note you are not required to organise or deliver the content for the event – however there may be an opportunity to do this if you are interested. 

This is a zero-hour contract role, but it is expected you will work up to 40 hours a month.
