We are recruiting for an energetic and enthusiastic person to be part of our funding application to the Rank Foundation. We are applying for a grant to fund this person to be a paid intern and help organise our organisation’s 130th Anniversary activities during 2019.

This is a full time (35 hrs a week) employed internship (paid at London Living Wage level of £10.20 per hour). The successful candidate must be available from January 2019 for a period of 12 months.

Part of the Rank Foundation ‘Time to Shine Leader’ internship programme, this is a great chance for a person with skills, talents and ambition to gain valuable work experience, kick starting a career in the community sector – particularly in the field of events organising, community development and fundraising.

The role will centre around working with other members of St Hilda’s East team to develop a programme of celebrations to mark the charity’s 130th Anniversary. You will lead in organising, coordinating and promoting events. Existing plans include an Open Day, a summer street party, a sponsored walk, and an anniversary celebration event at the Mercers’ Hall in the City of London. We hope that our anniversary activities will help promote St Hilda’s East, attracting new users, support and partnerships.

Congratulations to Mainul Haque

- our former Boitok group leader, and current Older People’s Social Club co-leader -

On the 1st of December Mainul was invited to the Dockland Radison Hotel to receive his certificate at the Community Champion Awards 2016.

The award was for long standing health care worker for the BME Asian Community.

This award recognises an individual who has provided an outstanding level of care for someone during a time of illness.

We are very proud of him and his achievement and are very lucky to have him as part of our team here at St Hilda’s.
