We’re Hiring: 2 x Community Engagement Coordinator
We are recruiting for our resident engagement and social action programmes that work with residents living across Hackney and the City of London. You will be based out in the community to engage, support and enable local residents and patients to deliver local services for themselves, to meet local needs.
We support residents to come together, to share their skills and experience for the benefit of each other, to deliver local groups and activities such as a book group, film club, exercise classes or cooking group. Residents from diverse backgrounds and demographics attend these activities together and make new connections, building strong local communities, all working together to make their area a better place to live.
People, many of whom are isolated across all ages, and who have difficult life circumstances, are brought together, providing each other with mutual support and encouragement to develop new skills and pursue life goals, and to feel better able to voice their concerns to services.
You will be joining a nationally-recognised project, working with a whole range of community organisations and stakeholders including GP surgeries, local Councillors, mental health services, local authorities, to support residents to fulfil their personal goals, make connections with others, and design activities and services that meet local needs.
The roles are mainly based in one of our community hubs and so the post holders need to be self-motivating and confident to work alongside one other person and often alone, with some support from the team members based at other sites.
Salary: £27,580 per annum pro rata
Hours: Part-time or full-time – either 3 or 5 days/week
