The Madina Mosque, Wolseley Road, is a relatively new landmark building in the city of Sheffield that includes additional community space for the development of activities to respond to the social and educational needs of the community. The Broomhill, Central and Nether Edge Area Panel and the Pakistan Muslim Centre are working in partnership to support the development of the new community facility at Wolseley Road.

The post is initially funded for one year and the aim is to initiate the first stage in the development of the new community centre. This will include working closely with both the steering group and Madina Mosque committee to work towards providing a range of non-religious services and activities that is open to the wider community. This role will be challenging, as the project is about creating something new and different for the community – but it will be very worthwhile and rewarding.

We are looking for a dynamic person with a solid track record of working in the community, with strong project development and partnership working experience which is underpinned by excellent communication and social skills as well as a knowledge and awareness of relevant cultural and religious traditions.
