Basic Salary & Accommodation 

Woodford Forest United Synagogue is a large and growing community. Based in the North East of London our community has over 1200 members from across all age ranges. The shul has been created by the merger of two local communities approximately 4 years ago.  We are looking to bolster our team to meet demand for social, cultural and educational events for adults and youth within the community.

We are looking for two part time Community Development Workers to work closely with the Rabbi & Rebbetzen to help organise and run programmes for children and teens and to focus on outreach with disengaged members and potential new members.

You must have personal warmth to help our members feel engaged, empowered and a valuable part of the community, whatever their contribution – and to make Judaism relevant for their lives.

The successful candidates will be warm, empathetic, strong communicators with confidence to work with youth & adults of all ages and who wish to really make a difference within our community. It’s important that you have strong spoken and written English language and are computer literate, experience using social media is a definite plus.

This role offers a huge potential to make a lasting contribution to a community that has consistently embraced change and opens its arms to new ideas and initiatives.
