Job Openings

Established in 1991, Groundwork Northern Ireland is a not-for-profit organisation creating communities in which people are proud to live and work.  

Our purpose is: ‘Changing Lives, Changing Places, Changing Minds’. We deliver programmes and services aimed at boosting local regeneration, community cohesion and grassroots development.  We engage and motivate people to improve their quality of life by investing in people and places and by supporting community-led regeneration plans and sustainability initiatives.  In areas of high social need, we provide practical solutions to major challenges by working in partnership with local communities, key funding bodies, statutory authorities and other agencies.
This is an opportunity to get involved and make a difference.

Current Vacancies

Bank Associates - Community Gardeners

Due to an increase in demand for our work and services across Northern Ireland we are developing a list of Associates to support us in achieving our goals. We currently require support from Community Gardeners; however, if you think you can offer us "something different" or have a talent that would help us grow in a different field we would be more than happy to hear from you.

We will be holding our Associate list for three years as we wish to cultivate and nurture these partnerships.
