What Does a Community Champion do?
Community Champions are involved in two types of engagements:
A “Community Orientation Visit” is typically for a candidate who is considering relocating to the area. A Community Champion will showcase the local resources important to a particular family. They’ll help the family determine whether the community is a good fit for them. They’ll then, help the family narrow to down their search for a desired area to begin their real estate search. This engagement may include visits to schools, churches, parks, shopping centers, country clubs, athletic resources, health care facilities, walkable communities, arts amenities, entertainment centers, etc... Often, introductions are made to School Administrators, Coaches, Faith leaders and other relevant contacts to help the family discover local amenities.
Typically after the candidate and their family have decided to make the transition we may facilitate a “Community Immersion Engagement”. This engagement focuses specifically on assimilation into the community. The Community Champion will learn the family's desired activities and organizations of interest within the community. They will suggest organizations and resources, provide recommendations, contact information, and arrange meaningful introductions where opportunities exist. For example, if a child is interested in a particular club activity (i.e., lacrosse, volleyball or equestrian) the Community Champion will provide information about the typical season, tryout dates, contact information and may arrange a visit to the club. Alternatively, if a family member aspires to get involved in a particular charity or do faith-based volunteer work, the Community Champion will provide pertinent information about how to get involved, contact information and may arrange an introduction with a current member or executive director.
Is There Training Required?
Training will be offered to Community Champions to enhance knowledge about local resources and they will be expected to stay current on changes within their community.
Additional Hiring Information
As part of the candidate selection process, candidates will demonstrate familiarity with community resources and convey a personality and character well-suited for the type of work. Typically, interested parties will be asked to conduct a mock tour with members of Community Insiders Management.
Will I Use My Own Car?
You may either select to use your own vehicle, or you may borrow a company car. Use of company car will be factored into earnings. Requests for a company car should be made 48 hours in advance. If you use your car, it is required that appropriate proof of insurance is on file with Community Insiders.
How Much Does It Pay?
Candidates are compensated on a per event basis. Compensation will be based on average home value in the community being served, and the composite score for that Community Champion. Composite score is made up of several factors, including: time in community, level of involvement in community, time with Community Insiders and the scores from previous surveys. Therefore, pay will vary from person to person and may increase over time.
What Questions Are Asked In Survey?
- How helpful was your Community Champion?
- Was your Community Champion informed and able to get you the resources you needed?
- Did your Community Champion make unsolicited recommendations for services which indicated a conflict of interest?
Will I Get to See The My Survey Results?
Survey results will generally be shared with a Community Champion after a total of three surveys have been collected. However, in the event that a response is received in a survey which indicates an urgent matter, that Community Champion will be notified promptly.
Are There Specific Guidelines?
Typically, collegial, but professional conduct is expected during work engagements. It is expected that Community Champion is dedicated to the work engagement during scheduled engagements. Therefore, tending to personal affairs during work engagements is highly discouraged.
How Will I Know When I'm Scheduled?
Each Community Champion will share their availability for the upcoming month by the 15th of each month. Efforts will be made to book normal engagements by the last day of the month. Priority Engagements may be requested at a 10% premium. In the event of a Priority Engagement, Champion will be notified to verify availability.
