Waltham Forest is a borough that is going places. Diverse and growing in stature every year, the borough has become a great place to work, live and raise a family.
As a council we pride ourselves on this, and we’re continually looking at new ways to support local people, improve their life chances and create a new relationship with our community through our Connecting Communities programme.
Waltham Forest was selected as one of only five Integration Area pilots nationally - and the only one in London. Connecting Communities is more than a programme; it represents a new movement that has impacted across the community, council and partners and our local networks are at the heart of this. The programme empowers residents to take the lead in their communities and be the catalyst for change; providing the support and infrastructure required to enable residents to achieve their ambitions. This is a bold and wide-ranging plan which requires robust programme management to drive maximum impact and ensure successful, innovative delivery.
We’re looking for an exceptional programme manager to join us on a secondment from now till the end of March 2020.
This role requires a proactive and confident individual who is a good leader and motivator, with an eye for both the bigger and smaller picture. Ideally, you will have programme management experience but this secondment also provides an exciting development opportunity for an ambitious and capable project manager or someone who has coordinated wide-ranging community initiatives. You will be responsible for oversight of our community networks and must have previous experience in line management and budget management.
If you are interested in applying please send your CV and a two-page statement telling us why you fit the bill to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 11th November.
If you have any questions about this vacancy please contact Sal Asghar, Head of Connecting Communities and Life Chances on 07770 052517.
