As one of our Neighbourhood Co-ordinators, you will act as a champion for the local area, making sure our residents understand how we can work together to make our borough a cleaner, greener and safer place for all.
It’s a varied role and no two days are the same. 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 the Police to resolve community safety issues.
Solving problems and identifying priorities within local neighbourhoods will be at the heart of all you do and 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 and/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.
Your communication and relationship building skills will be key to delivering an excellent customer service both to our residents and stakeholders.
In return we offer you a fantastic opportunity to build on your current skills and experience and to receive training so that you are qualified to carry out highway inspections across the borough. And working for Solihull means that you have access to a range of flexible working options, a generous annual leave entitlement and attractive staff discounts.
