Caerllion Rufeinig | Roman Caerleon - Working in Partnership Needs You! 

Amgueddfa Cymru, Cadw and Newport City Council are working together to maximise the potential of Caerleon’s Roman heritage. Local views are needed to help finalise a shared vision for Caerleon and explore options to deliver an improved experience across the Roman and other historic sites in Caerleon for the benefit of the community and visitors.

 We are now calling for expressions of interest from four volunteers living and/or working in Caerleon to join Roman Caerleon – Working in Partnership and help with this work in one of two, different roles. 

Two people are wanted to join the Governance Board in an advisory capacity as a Caerleon Community Advocate – Governance Board. The Board oversees the work of Roman Caerleon – Working in Partnership, and meets about every 6 months. 

Another two people are sought to be Steering Group members in the role of Caerleon Community Advocate – Steering Group. This Group focuses on developing and delivering projects to achieve the vision. It meets about every 3 months. 

For both roles, you must be willing to champion our work in the community and to proactively seek out and share a range of local views. 

Becoming a Caerleon Community Advocate is an important voluntary role with expenses paid to encourage people from diverse backgrounds to apply. The Governance Board is particularly keen to hear from young people (18 years or older) and those who work in Caerleon. Every effort will be made ensure meeting times and events suit your availability. Role descriptions give more detail on the two roles, the required skills and attributes, and expenses. No previous experience is required. 

Both Caerleon Community Advocate roles are expected to last for one year with the possibility of a two-three year extension subject to funding and annual review by the Board. Caerleon Community Advocates are expected to abide by the Terms of Refence for either the Governance Board or the Steering Group.

For copies of the role descriptions and terms of reference, or to submit an expression of interest, please email by 31 May 2024.

Expressions of interest should consider the relevant role descriptions and include the following information: 

• An outline of who you are and your relevant skills, attributes and experience (if applicable) 

• A summary of why you want to be a Caerleon Community Advocate for ether the Governance Board or the Steering Group. 

Please note: the same person cannot do both roles. If you are interested in both roles, please indicate which role you would prefer in your expression of interest. The Governance Board will appoint the four Caerleon Community Advocates
