About us

Following a successful partnership bid between Somerset County Council and Somerset Chamber of Commerce to the Community Impact Mitigation fund, an unusual and exciting opportunity has arisen to work in a new team setting up and coordinating a business facing Partnership.

About the job

You will be working with a dedicated manager, a small team of partner organisations and a range of stakeholders. You will be required to create and deliver a communications and promotion plan, with a clear social media element, research and compile a comprehensive database of EBP opportunities, plan events, co-design a service web site and keep it up to date, oversee and input to the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system, assist the manager in compiling labour market information, statistics and have a keen eye on the world of work and what employers need from young people coming through education. You will have a mix of office-based work with face to face contact with businesses, agencies, educationalists and young people.

About you

We’re looking for someone who wants a varied and challenging co-ordination role. You need excellent organisational skills, the ability to be self-motivated, imaginative and creative, a good team player and able to multi task. You will need to be able to work flexibly to suit the requirements of the role including some work outside of office hours in the delivery of the role. Excellent communication skills are required. You will need to be familiar with IT and administrative duties. Office experience is essential.
