Job Details

The Community Partnership Manager (CPM) will be responsible for the development and delivery of one of Toynbee Hall’s main service delivery initiatives: the Linkage Plus partnership.

This role is key in terms of ensuring that the programme is delivered to meet the needs of older people in the community, to build and hold Toynbee Hall’s vital relationships with organisations and stakeholders in the community, and to bolster the overall work of the Community Centre and the Communities and Social Change department.

Toynbee Hall works closely with local residents to design programmes that meet their needs and interests and this approach will be central to the work

Flexible, hours spread over 3-5 days per week during business hours  


Day to day tasks include:

1. Linkage programme development and delivery: Collaborate with local residents to design and implement a range of community activities and programs that address the needs and interests of the community and source new partnerships to deliver the programmes.  

 2. Community Engagement: Build and maintain strong relationships with local residents, community organizations, and stakeholders to ensure that the centre remains responsive to the evolving needs of the community.    

3. Collaborative Partnerships: Establish and nurture collaborative partnerships with the Linkage partner organisations and other local charities and organisations focused on supporting individuals in accessing their local communities. Develop and maintain strong relationships to ensure a coordinated approach to tackling isolation among isolated community members.    

4. Advocacy: Support advocacy for policies and initiatives that address the underlying causes of poverty and support the well-being of the community members you serve.    

5. Evaluation and Reporting: Regularly assess the effectiveness of the Linkage programme and activities through data collection and evaluation and provide comprehensive reports to the charity's leadership.

6. Needs Assessment: Conduct thorough needs assessments to identify the specific challenges and barriers faced by at risk individuals in accessing local communities. Use this information to inform the development of targeted programs and initiatives.    

7. Outreach and Inclusivity: Implement outreach strategies to engage community members who may be experiencing isolation or limited access to resources.          




Based in the East End of London since 1884, Toynbee Hall is a charity working alongside people facing poverty, injustice, and inequality to build a fairer East London. We provide vital advice and support, working in partnership to tackle unfairness and ensure everyone has an equal chance to thrive.

We have recently launched a new strategic plan which reinforces that our purpose is to build a fairer future with an end to poverty, injustice and inequality.

We work towards this by:

  • Addressing poverty and injustice through advice and support and influencing systemic change.
  • Shifting power to people and communities affected by injustice and inequality.
  • Collaborating to end poverty and build fairer systems and institutions. What we want to see in the world starts with our community and our organisation.

This means:

  • Working together to build a thriving local community where people have the resources they need, feel their voices are heard and are optimistic about the future.
  • Being a good employer, where people are treated fairly, feel engaged and empowered, and work together to achieve our shared vision.
  • Acknowledging the role Toynbee Hall has historically played in civic society while recognising that our role now is to shift power, to be an effective partner, and to amplify voices that are less likely to be heard.
