    This is a fixed term contract until 31st March 2022

    The West Kent Leader Programme

    The West Kent LEADER Programme has supported over 103 rural projects in West Kent and is funded by the European Commission. It was successfully delivered between 2008 and 2020 and numerous rural businesses were supported with grants.

Further details can be found under the Job Description below.

    You will have excellent organisational, analytical, interpersonal and communication skills as well as confidence to work with a range of stakeholders. You will have an interest in the issues facing rural businesses and a good knowledge of EU funded programmes and their monitoring and auditing requirements will be advantageous. As you will be required to undertake attestation audits at the various project sites, you will need to have a clean driving licence and access to a car.
