The new home for change makers and social entrepreneurs

Set to open in May 2021, Better Space is a new affordable and inspiring co-working and community space developed in partnership with City, University of London (‘City’) and Islington Borough Council’s affordable workspace programme, to support local businesses with a focus on social enterprises and those wishing to have a positive social or environmental impact on the world!

Located in the iconic The Ray Farringdon Building at 127 Farringdon Road, the 600sqm space is across two floors in a high specification and inspiring property. Once completed, the space will have up to 80 desks for startups, local entrepreneurs and change makers in addition to three dedicated meeting rooms and two breakout/event spaces.

The Community Manager will work closely with Better Space’s Head of Operations to coordinate programmes and services to support Better Space members, the local community and the social impact space in general. This includes hosting bespoke events and specialist initiatives, including the Build Better accelerator, which aims to help businesses and under-represented founders to build sustainable and scaleable responsible ventures.

You will build a community orientated home where founders can work, learn and play so that we develop a happy and connected community that is willing to participate and give back as it grows. In addition, the community Manager will lead activities to promote the space and liaise closely with Islington Borough Council to ensure the space serves the local community.

This is an exciting role which offers the post holder the opportunity to develop and build an important and innovative initiative which will support local economic recovery and deliver social value to City’s broader community.
