Make a real and lasting difference through community transformation.
We have an exciting opportunity, for a Hub Leader to join the team at Oasis Hub Foundry & Boulton in Birmingham.
Oasis Hub Foundry and Boulton was launched in 2014 and is situated in the Winson Green and Handsworth area of Birmingham. Until now, work has focused on the families and wider community linked to Oasis Academy Foundry, but in 2018 we’re excited to expand the work of the Hub to also include Oasis Academy Boulton.

These have included a cooking social enterprise and other food based projects, local volunteers supporting their neighbours in areas such as benefits and housing, training and courses, youth clubs, holiday activities and one-one and group work. Added to this, the local community has become home to our resident alpacas (alongside other animals) who are used within our projects as well as visiting other community events.

We’re now looking for a new Hub Leader to help continue the growth of this really exciting Hub.
