Corporate social responsibility (CSR) co-ordinator

CSR coordinator

A corporate social responsibility (CSR) coordinator is almost the conscience of a company – championing, developing and reporting on the ethical, environmentally-friendly and community-minded side of the business.

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


  • 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 - £50,000
  • Senior CSR Coordinators can earn in the region of £50,000 - £60,000

Salaries typically range depending on location and level of responsibility. Salaries and career options improve with chartered status.

Qualifications and 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.
