We are recruiting a new role to add to the network of Communities and Partnerships role which support the Urban&Civic developments in Cambridgeshire.

The role will support the development of the Genome Campus at Hinxton, on behalf of the Wellcome Trust. The world leading project will see a revolutionary expansion of the Campus, to deliver a planning consent of 1500 homes, a primary school, 91,000 sq ft of internationally important labs and life science buildings, and over 130 acres of green space. The project will be an international exemplar for community building, sustainable travel, low carbon technologies, and biodiverse-rich landscape creation.

Monday to Friday 9am – 5.30pm


Role Purpose

The role delivers Urban&Civic’s inclusive approach to development and evolves over the lifetime of each project: ensuring local communities and partners help to shape development plans for each site; delivering strong regular communications through the project; and fostering relationships with partners and communities.

Being a key part of the team representing the project to local partners and communities, the role will lead the communications and engagement of local communities and businesses on site through the planning and delivery stages; proactively develop projects on themes including health, active travel and transport, ecology and climate change and jobs and skills which support early engagement with key partners and stakeholders; and supporting colleagues and the wider design team to communicate progressthrough the lifetime of the project. It will ensure a proactive response to issues relating to businesses and partners on site and neighbouring communities, and support delivery of key community infrastructure and commitments through the roll-out of the development.

As a Communications professional, the post holder will create varied and engaging content for a variety of project communications platforms, and work alongside colleagues to develop and communicate our story, manage our reputation as a local stakeholder and promote the place brand and story around the development. This will in turn support the planning and delivery process, provoke interest and support for the project and build a strong foundation for future place marketing, engagement of housebuilder partners, and ultimately to support promotion and sales as the development rolls out.

The role will work as part of a U&C Hinxton project team, working on behalf of the Wellcome Trust. The role will also be part of a regional network of roles supporting the 3 developments U&C are taking forward in Cambridgeshire and will work alongside and draw from colleagues across the wider U&C portfolio on cross-cutting projects and to share best practice and inform innovation and strategy development.
