Further Information

Think Communities is at the heart of changing the way the public, private and voluntary sector work together with communities in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire. By recognising the role of communities, supporting local delivery by those who know their residents best and championing our diverse communities, we will improve the outcomes for people, creating places where people can feel safe, healthy, connected and able to help themselves and each other.

The Place Coordinator will be responsible for overseeing a number of projects, so will require strong project management and budgeting skills. With highly effective communication skills, the Place Coordinator will represent the Council or the team at multi-agency and partnership meetings. A strong understanding of the capability, capacity and sustainability of community led action developed through asset-based community development will be complimented by desire to explore different interventions and funding opportunities which support and improve the lives of people in our places. An ability to organise and facilitate local events or workshops, some outside of normal working hours, to improve shared understanding of community assets and priorities and engage with local groups and residents.

The Place Coordinator will have direct line management and will build and coordinate multidisciplinary place teams, quickly developing trusted working relationships drawn from a wide range of public, private and health sectors, social care, voluntary and community sector, community leaders and other capable people, utilising the strengths of the diverse range of those involved. Fostering a culture of innovation through working in collaboration, partners will represent themselves and each other with the best interests of communities in that place.
