Coin Street is a high profile central London social enterprise with many and varied stakeholders and our neighbourhood is going through significant change.

We have transformed a largely derelict 13-acre site into a thriving place for people to live, work and visit by creating co-operative homes; shops, galleries, restaurants, cafes and bars; a park and riverside walkway; sports facilities; by organising festivals and events; and by providing childcare, family support, learning, and enterprise support programmes. Income generated from our commercial activities stays in the neighbourhood. It is used to manage and maintain our site including the riverside walkway and Bernie Spain Gardens and funds a wide range of community programmes in Waterloo and North Southwark.

You will have proven experience of delivering successful campaigns working across print and digital media as well as PR and stakeholder engagement. Committed to the work of the organisation, you will have highly developed interpersonal skills, be self-motivated and organised.
