About us:

Giving people a voice – and making sure it’s heard – is something POhWER does every day. We’re all about promoting equality, challenging unfairness and giving disadvantaged and vulnerable people access to high quality information, advice and advocacy services. POhWER is a registered charity that provides a range of services across England.

We are looking to recruit people who share our core values and can demonstrate that they apply and live those values in their daily working practice.

About the role:

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a full time Community Manager to join our team working across Surrey and the South East.

The ideal candidate will have supervisory/management experience and demonstrable knowledge in the delivery of information, advice and advocacy services.  As a Community Manager at POhWER, you will be responsible for the frontline delivery of the business plan and ensure that local services deliver the contractual requirements. 

You will be leading a team who work with a wide range of vulnerable people with sometimes profound and multiple needs, so you will have experience of this type of work, along with a good working knowledge of voluntary organisations.

You will be a confident positive team player; able to work in partnership with clients, commissioners, and professionals.  You will be able to demonstrate strong leadership and team building skills and have an understanding of contracts, specifications and meeting KPI’s.  You will be able to work to tight deadlines providing high quality reports with the ability to analyse statistical information and work comfortably under pressure whilst having a positive and proactive approach.

Because of the nature and location of the role, applicants must live within the area; have a full driver’s licence and access to their own transport. Travel expenses will only be paid once in the Surrey area border.
