Are you a passionate ‘people person’ and a good writer too?
If that’s you, we could have just the job.
Cratus is looking for someone who can tick all of those boxes and shares our passion for all things local to fit right into our Communities team.
Up to £24k per annum
Wokingham based with travel
Are you committed to community? As a Communities Executive, you will be working on housing developments as they are built, putting together communication and engagement strategies which keep local communities informed. More than that, you will be an ideas person who thinks of creative ways to engage with people, bringing them together to create new community events and initiatives.
Our world is local. With a passion for politics and a commitment to community, Cratus supports organisations who would like to work with the public sector and the communities it serves, from reviewing council services to supporting developers with planning applications. The Cratus Communities team was established in 2017 to help build and integrate new and existing communities once developers have planning permission in place.
Who’s right for the job?
A great communicator. An ambitious go-getter. Someone who is driven to go above and beyond for customers. On any given day, you will be communicating with a whole host of different people – from clients to politicians, individual residents and community groups – and you will need to be able to build effective relationships at every level, providing superb customer service at all times.
You must be well-organised and comfortable working on your own initiative. Although we work closely as a team, you will be responsible for managing your workload and prioritising tasks, putting together and delivering the communication and engagement strategies which guide your work but also adapting your workload to respond to customer demands as needed.
We have a work hard, play hard culture at Cratus. Because you will be working with the community, you will need to be prepared to work some evenings and weekends, but we can offer flexible working in return and make sure we get together regularly as a team to celebrate our successes.
Skills we need
- Excellent verbal, written and presentation skills
- Ability to engage effectively with a wide range of people in different environments
- Self-starter with motivation and enthusiasm to work on own initiative
- Great team player keen to pitch in when needed
- Good negotiation and influencing skills
- Full driving licence and use of a vehicle
- Understanding of the workings of local government
- Knowledge of communication and engagement techniques
