Overseeing the development and implementation of a strategic pipeline of externally led growth projects, the post will initially contribute to co-ordinating our responsibilities as local accountability body for the pilot Government funded UK Community Renewal Fund, with an opportunity for the post to be extended to support the Council’s potential role following the release of the Government’s forthcoming UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
In this integral role as Project Coordinator – Growth, you will join a high performing and supportive team where you will be able to develop your project management skills, knowledge and experience.

In doing so, you will need to liaise with internal and external partners, including the scheme promoters for the Community Renewal Fund projects; Councillors and the public. You will also provide coordination and support in budget management, research and report preparation, stakeholder engagement, administration and meetings.
If you meet the above requirements and are a self-motivated, flexible person with a customer-orientated approach, we would be keen to hear from you.
