Careers at Grapevine

Join the team at Grapevine Coventry and Warwickshire! Current vacancies are listed below.


We have not one, not two but THREE roles being advertised! From helping disabled people have a much needed say on their future, to inspiring action against youth loneliness, to creating conversations and building relationships – you’ll never be bored at work again.

Grapevine is a national award winning charity tackling disadvantage, isolation and poverty in Coventry and Warwickshire.

We are a triple action organisation – strengthening people, sparking community, shifting power. We help individual people get what they need to take control, turn their lives around and realise their potential. Strong local people and communities tackling their challenges, taking opportunities, shaping their lives – that’s our mission.

Empowerment Worker

Our Warwickshire Empowerment Service aims to ensure that disabled people in the county have the greatest possible opportunity to be involved in the design of services. But it doesn’t stop there. We also look at local issues, trying to change areas for the better to allow people to have safe, healthy and well-connected lives.

The work isn’t as straightforward as running consultations. You could be campaigning with an inflatable zebra crossing one minute and the next running an open mic night to help make night-life safer.

Your base will be our HQ in Coventry and you will be mobile in Warwickshire.

About you

To be successful in this role you will need to be adaptable and creative, making tough subjects easy to understand. We need people who are outgoing and willing to partner with other organisations, forging connections that can help make change.

£24,799 – £26,317 per year. Contract, part-time. Click here for more detailed information and to download an application pack.

Community Organiser

Community organising is about building relationships and networks that mean people can tackle their local issues together. As our organisers do that, communities form that are ambitious for their member’s health and happiness, as well as for wider change.

Addressing the bad experiences of young disabled people is a priority for us. It’s a persistent issue that we have helped solve for hundreds of young people. But we can’t reach them all with traditional methods. They need new solutions. That’s why we turned to social action and movement building and set up our young activists group. Now they want (with your help) to combat youth loneliness – and not just for disabled young people either.

About you

To be successful in this role you will need to be the sort of person who relishes responsibility, because you’ll have lots of it. You will create and implement a carefully structured work plan that will deliver change led by young people. You will need to be brilliant with young people and brilliant at thinking and working in a planned, strategic way too.

You’ll have a flair for fun and doing things differently too.

£26,999 – £28,758 per year. Contract, full-time. Click here for more detailed information and to download an application pack.

Community Organiser

Community organising is about building relationships and networks that mean people can tackle their local issues together. As our organisers do that, communities form that are ambitious for their member’s health and happiness, as well as for wider change. You focus on listening, building relationships and organising people to take action that makes a difference.

The context for your role is Warwickshire County Council’s Joint Strategic Needs Assessment process. This process provides an opportunity to listen to, plan with and mobilise community leadership in response to local health or social problems. Your base will be our HQ in Coventry and you will be mobile in Warwickshire.
