Job description

We are recruiting for a Centre Coordinator for a co-production hub in Manchester City Centre. The centre houses our successful 25 years running membership/co-production service and also offers a home to a range of creative, well-being and corporate activities. The successful candidate will be a passionate, creative, flexible and motivated individual who is willing to coordinate all the functions of the centre and develop the service over the next 5-10 years. 

There are five key elements to the role:

  • Centre coordination of the groups and activities

  • Co-production and development of the membership model

  • Ensuring a business model that is sustainable and enterprising and utilises volunteers

  • Promoting events, arts and wellbeing activities that support and contribute to the aims of Creative Support

  • Developing and overseeing the virtual service user Zoom programme

The successful post holder will be a dynamic, organised and visionary person who is able to be the frontline leader of the initiative. You will have excellent interpersonal skills and a firm background in social inclusion work and preferably in social care. You will be able to engage a range of stakeholders including the Board and external partners.  You will have proven experience in a relevant community setting and the insight and skills to review and develop the centre. We are looking to recruit a practical person who will ensure a safe and well managed space.

Based in the vibrant Northern Quarter in Manchester the centre is an ideal location to attract new membership and host a range of creative and inclusive events which are self-sustaining and further the aims of Creative Support. The centre works in a Covid safe way and utilises social media to engage with service users nationally as well as holding face to face sessions. We have a well loved Nourish community café which offers high quality food and encourages volunteering.

Due to the nature of the service the work hours will be largely 9am-5pm Monday to Friday but there will be a need for regular flexibility for evenings and weekends (at least one evening a fortnight and some weekend working). There is an established, experienced and diverse team involved in the centre who work closely together to ensure we meet the needs of the service.
