We’re hiring a Community Engagement Coordinator
Are you a self-motivated, confident worker who enjoys meeting and connecting individuals and organisations? Are you passionate about communities coming together to solve local issues?
We are recruiting for our resident engagement and social action programmes across Hackney and the City of London. We support residents to come together, to share their skills and experience for the benefit of each other, to deliver local groups and activities. These are all designed by residents, and have included activities such as communal meals, film clubs, after-school clubs, exercise classes and even martial arts sessions! We bring people together, build their skills and confidence, build strong local communities, all working together to make their area better places 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.
