East Sussex Community Voice (ESCV) is seeking a skilled, committed and energetic individual to drive forward our communication activity and support delivery of our innovative community-focused projects and programmes. 

Established in 2013, ESCV is a Community Interest Company. Our vision is for People centred public services in East Sussex; where all members of the public are empowered to have a say in service, design, and delivery’. We deliver Healthwatch East Sussex, the EU-funded ‘it takes a Village to Raise A Child’ (VRAC) project, and a number of other initiatives in East Sussex.

Working closely with staff and volunteers, you will gather views and experiences from individuals, communities, and stakeholders across East Sussex.
