Discover Community Connector

Do you enjoy talking and interacting with others? Are you interested in helping your community?

Why not join our team of Discover Community Connectors?

Being a Discover Community Connector is easy and fun.

A Discover Community Connector is someone who reaches out into their community. They listen and help us to understand why people might find it difficult to get online and what can be done to help. The feedback they provide from their community helps to support more people to have the access they want to the digital world.

Who can be a Discover Community Connector?

You don’t need any qualifications to get involved.  Anyone over 18 years old can become a Discover Digital Community Connector, but if you feel your voice is not often heard, or that you’re left out of more traditional research then we would especially like to hear from you.

What Skills or Experience do I need?

All you need is to enjoy talking and interacting with others and be interested in helping your community. You don’t need to have any experience or qualifications.

You will get all the support and training you need from our experienced team. We’ll give you the materials you need to help people to ‘Get Talking’ about how they want to interact with the digital world and what support they need to do it.

You might have some ideas of your own about the things that get in the way of people being more digital. We’ll encourage you to share these ideas so that others can learn from you.

What’s in it for me?

  • There is a bursary to cover your out-of-pocket expenses.
  • You will learn new skills, receive free training and be supported by our experienced team.
  • If you want to, you can gain a Level 3 Community Consultation qualification to add to your CV.
