Public Engagement Coordinator

The City of New Westminster has an exciting opportunity for a Public Engagement Coordinator. With the recent adoption of a new Public Engagement Strategy, we are seeking a dynamic and creative individual who will be responsible for coordinating New Westminster’s public engagement initiatives and working with other City staff to enhance outreach activities.

Reporting to the Manager of Communications and Economic Development, you will use your skills working closely with staff to create a culture of engagement and will develop mechanisms to assist public stakeholders in understanding key city issues and priorities. You will also assist City departments with the strategic planning and evaluation of major engagement initiatives.

Your responsibilities include organizing and coordinating public engagement and community outreach programs; reviewing and evaluating engagement systems and activities; and providing consultation, training and assistance to internal staff on implementing engagement tools. You are a self-starter who can exercise considerable independence of judgment and action in the creative aspects of your work.

If this sounds like the perfect fit for your passion, talent and skills, we would love to hear from you
