About the role
Local Partnerships is seeking an Assistant Project Director to support the successful delivery of activity within the Resources & Waste team, within agreed time, cost and quality constraints. Read more about our achievements here: Resource efficiency and circular economy - Local Partnerships
Assistant Project Directors may work on their own but will more often form part of a team of different specialists undertaking an assignment stretching over weeks or months, or occasionally years, for a client who will typically be a central government department or one or more councils.
While every assignment is different, Assistant Project Directors typically bring their professional expertise and project management skills to bear on complex projects and problems and ensure the Local Partnerships’ quality standards are met in completing the assignment on time and budget.
Almost all assignments involve preparing reports containing complex written and analytical information for the client, so excellent communications skills are vital. Knowledge transfer to the client is a key part of the role.
Assistant Project Directors may be based anywhere in the UK. They will need to travel to Local Partnerships and clients’ offices around the country.
- A member of a recognised professional body
- Experience and expertise in the delivery of Resource and Waste programmes and projects, including understanding of the waste treatment and collection sectors, provider positions (in-house or outsourced)
- An understanding of relevant sector specific legislation and guidance
- Experience of directing the development of business cases using the Treasury’s five case model
- Good strategic and operational understanding of the issues that will deliver savings
- Experience of risk management approaches, and ability to identify and mitigate risks
- Knowledge of waste treatment infrastructure in particular energy from waste, material recovery and anaerobic digestion
