Your role in our journey
This role is temporary to cover maternity leave and is a crucial component to the successful planning and development of workforce initiatives. The primary focus of this post is to drive forward the organisation and workforce development agenda by supporting services within the Council, and its partners. The postholder will help support appropriate development opportunities that meet business objectives and provide a robust framework of development and progression for the individual. You’ll proactively liaise, negotiate and collaborate with people across and external to the council. Crucially, you will use feedback and data to evaluate our activities, identifying improvements and ensuring value for money.
What you’ll need
To join us, you’ll need a Level 4 Diploma in an area relevant to the role and you will bring knowledge and experience of workforce issues which complement the demands of the Advisor post. With highly developed communication skills, you will have experience of providing individuals with professional advice and guidance and delivering formal presentations to a wide range of audiences. A knowledge of apprenticeships would be advantageous.
We want someone who can be proactive, dynamic and comfortable with working with a diverse range of individuals, services and organisations to get the job done.
