We are committed to placing the community right at the heart of everything we do in order to help transform our neighbourhoods. We’ve developed an exciting new Thriving Neighbourhoods model and need you to help make it happen. We are looking to fill a number of vacancies within the Neighbourhoods Team, and this could be your opportunity to transform the way we work with councillors, residents, partners and businesses.
You’ll be helping us build outstanding services for the people, businesses and communities across Rotherham. You will have an understanding about neighbourhood working as well as community development and asset-based approaches. You’ll be working closely with different Council services, other public sector service providers and the Voluntary Community Sector so will need to display an ability to build relationships and forge strong partnerships.
You must be a strategic leader and ambassador for neighbourhood working and have experience in managing neighbourhood services. You’ll see that our new model shapes our thinking, while looking for innovative, sustainable ways to meet future challenges across a number of wards. Positive and enthusiastic, you’ll thrive on the opportunity to champion cultural change.
An experienced project manager, you can negotiate, network and solve problems. A talent for communicating, both in person and on paper, is vital too so you can explain proposals clearly and build consensus.
This is an exciting time to join Rotherham. You can look forward to all the satisfaction of building on the changes we’ve already made, reinforcing our momentum and driving further progress. It’s a receptive, enthusiastic, collaborative environment in which to make your mark.
If you would like an informal discussion please contact Martin Hughes (Head of Neighbourhoods) on 07766 442269.
