As the vital link between our communities and our council, you’ll help to make our borough cleaner, greener and safer.

In the role of Neighbourhood Coordinator, you will help to make sure Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council understands what local people need from us. It’s a hugely varied role. Your responsibilities will range from inspecting highways to attending community meetings. You’ll deliver a host of local plans and projects in communities, while also working closely with West Midlands Police to resolve community safety issues. Solving problems and identifying priorities within local neighbourhoods will be at the heart of all you do. As a champion for the local area, you’ll make sure local people understand what we can do for them - as well as helping us to do a better job on their behalf. Along the way, you’ll forge strong links with councillors, retailers, businesses and other partners.

To join us, you’ll need a relevant Level 3 qualification or an equivalent amount of appropriate experience. We will certainly expect you to be able to manage small-scale community improvement programmes and look after their budgets. After all, you have a proven ability to work with communities and partner organisations to deliver improvements to neighbourhoods. Committed to excellent customer service, you have excellent communication and relationship building skills, with a demonstrable flair for resolving conflict.

In return we offer:

•Annual leave starting at 24 days and rising to 29 days after 5 years service with 8 public holidays and the opportunity to purchase up to 10 additional days holiday per year.

•A generous flexitime scheme with up to 24 days flexitime allowed per year.

•Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme.

•A range of family friendly policies.

Please note we do not accept CVs.

Solihull Council has a responsibility for, and a commitment to, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk and requires all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
