Job description

Coin Street is a social enterprise located on London’s iconic Southbank – and established in 1984 – its 13-acre site is at the heart of a thriving neighbourhood with co-operative homes, parks and gardens, shops and design studios, galleries, restaurants, a family and children’s centre, sports pitches, and a range of community programmes and activities. 

Coin Street is overseen by three independent organisations working together: Coin Street Community Builders (CSCB), Coin Street Secondary Housing Co-operative (CSS) and Coin Street Centre Trust (CSCT). These organisations are governed by voluntary boards, made up of members from the local community and experts from the sectors in which they work. All three organisations are served by a single staff team, employed by CSCB. Coin Street’s vision is one where diverse groups of people come together to live, work and play. They generate around 75% of their income from commercial activities and then reinvest the majority of those funds back into their community.
