The Role
  • Working in partnership with a range of people, including clients, employees, suppliers, charities and other groups
  • Developing and actioning the company's social responsibility strategy, making sure it meets the legal and commercial needs.
  • Organising events for employees, their communities and encourage links between the company and educational or charitable groups
  • Spreading the word in schools and local organisations about the company and construction in general
Salary
  • Newly trained CSR Coordinators can earn in the region of £20,000 - £30,000
  • Trained with experience CSR Coordinators can earn in the region of £30,000 - £40,000
Salaries typically range depending on location and level of responsibility. Salaries and career options improve with chartered status.
Qualifications & Training
There are no specific entry requirements, although employers tend to prefer you to have a degree or equivalent if you’re an external candidate for a post. It may be easier to take on the role if you already work in the organisation and have a background in education or community involvement. Work experience or an internship with a charity, government or corporate organisation is one way to gain skills that can be used in a CSR role.
