Frome Town Council - Resilience Summer Placements

Are you looking to build up your work experience? Frome Town Council is offering a flexible summer placement in our exciting resilience team. From becoming a ‘plastic-free’ town to cutting air pollution to helping Frome become one of the UK’s first fossil fuel free towns, it’s a growing and important area. Previous summer placements have gone on to get paid positions in sustainability and resilience.

The candidate will work on a range of projects: from helping secure ‘plastic free’ status to promoting the country’s first Sharing Shop ( and community fridge, to supporting our pioneering work around renewable energy and energy efficiency.

The role will entail:

  • Marketing and community engagement
  • Research
  • Fundraising support
  • Communications such as liaising with local press, social media and proof-reading
  • Admin support
  • Project implementation
  • Other duties as they arise

We are looking for two enthusiastic people to join the team. They need to be motivated and hard-working, with an attention to detail. Experience of research, marketing, communications and / or fundraising would be an advantage.

This is a part time, two days a week, summer position. The proposed days of work are Thursday and Friday, starting in June and ending in September (dates are flexible). A weekly contribution of £50 towards transport and subsistence will be provided. The candidate will be based at our council offices at Frome Town Hall, Christchurch St West, Frome, BA11 1EB

To apply please send your CV and a short letter outlining why you would like the role and what skills you can offer by midnight on 4th June, to Anna Francis
