About Coin Street Community Builders

The South Bank in London is home to world class cultural organisations and blue chip companies. New developments in the area include high end housing, offices and commercial properties. You will be key to establishing and maintaining relationships through existing and new networks with colleagues from these neighbours.

We are a social enterprise and development trust which seeks to make London's South Bank a better place in which to live, to work and to visit. We have transformed a largely derelict 13-acre site into a thriving mixed use neighbourhood by creating co-operative homes; redeveloping the landmark Oxo Tower Wharf into shops, galleries, restaurants, cafes and bars; creating a park and riverside walkway; by organising festivals and events; and by providing childcare, family support and sports facilities. Our future plans include a leisure centre, more affordable housing, extra care provision for older people and further commercial premises.

Our values are:

• Collaborative: By respecting the views of others we will learn, grow and achieve more together;
