Job summary

Working with the Partnerships and Programme manager within the Department for Children, Adults and Health, the post holder could be engaged in any part of the department leading key departmental projects.

The role is to provide strategic leadership and management of key CAH projects. The post holder will define a long term vision for transformation of the particular service area through engaging and developing relationships with stakeholders from across a number of Council divisions, a variety of partner organisations and service users.

The role has three core elements:

• developing good working relationships with stakeholders, engaging and persuading them of the benefits of achieving a co-produced vision and the need to press forward with the work

• defining a project plan and ensuring delivery of required deliverables (e.g. service specifications) and outcomes in line with the milestone dates and within allocated budget

• providing leadership and operational management to the particular service area during the development and implementation phase of a project to ensure the vision is embedded as “business as usual” practice. This will include developing the team to be able to continue operating in this way once the post holder has moved onto another project.

South Gloucestershire Council is committed to treating everyone fairly, to challenging inequalities and to promoting equality of opportunity for all. We welcome applications from everyone and value diversity in our workforce.
