Job description

You’ll be coming into an established programme, and partnership: we’ve worked closely with our Cabinet Office colleagues for six years now. Although this post will be working in the LGA, our strategy is jointly agreed; our Regional Managers work together in pairs; and our team structures are intertwined. You’ll find a Cabinet Office team who are open minded about change; flexible in the way we operate our rules; and relentlessly focussed on delivering better services, and better outcomes for people locally.

We are offering a 6 month term of employment, with a view to extension once we have confirmation of further funding.

About you 
As the LGA’s Programme Manager you will be working with and representing the local government sector to help deliver the OPE programme objectives: you will have good programme management skills, an ability to work in partnership and form partnerships, and be an empowering staff manager. You’ll likely have a background in local government at a senior level, and understand how to leverage land and property to get better outcomes for localities. A track record of demonstrable success goes without saying.

For more information on the Programme Manager role, please call Ellen Vernon on 07464 652918 or Craig Egglestone on 07824 371718.
