We are looking for a programme manager to lead the design, implementation and evaluation of the City and Hackney Making Every Contact Count (MECC) programme.

- co-design with residents and staff (in accordance with the City and Hackney Co-production Charter)
- ongoing testing and learning through agile working

Bringing jobs and investment into the borough, securing the legacy from 2012 Games, and making this a place of which we can all be proud.
We are also working towards our vision, which is to be a place for everyone; where residents and staff can be proud; a place that celebrates diversity and where everyone can feel valued, included and involved. In order to achieve this, we look for people who are: Proud; Ambitious; Pioneering; Open; Proactive; Inclusive.
