Centres for the Community are great spaces in Woking that benefit the whole community. Over the last two years they have changed significantly and now include a range of services and activities through exciting partnerships. These include fitness classes, art groups, community choir, youth clubs, toddler groups, maternity and health visitor clinics, dementia respite care, salons, counselling, employment support, cafes and day-services for the elderly. We believe these spaces are highly valuable to support our Health and Wellbeing Priorities particularly in tackling isolation and loneliness, through bringing communities and generations together.
To improve the operations of the Centres we are recruiting two Team Administrators (1.5FTE). We are looking for experienced administrators who will support the Centres to be accessible for customers. This includes supporting the communications in conjunction with the Council’s Communications Team and promoting the Centres on Social Media, monitoring data of outputs and processing and monitoring income and expenditure with the Operations Manager and Centre Managers. We want our Centres to be highly accessible and to improve digital opportunities for booking and accessing services. We also value quality customer service and at all times we put the customer and their needs first.
