We are looking for a talented individual who enjoys designing and delivering training schedules/programmes for politicians and leaders within local councils. The ideal candidate will be well versed at working within a policy lead environment and adept at liaising with and supporting a variety of affluent leaders who operate at a local level.

As a member of the leadership and localism team, you will contribute to the delivery of assigned projects and programmes that deliver the organisation's business plan and help local councils meet their challenges and priority outcomes.

Your main priority will be to contribute to the development, commissioning and delivery of local government political and managerial leadership programmes, so you will have previous experience within this field, in addition to an interest within leadership and localism.

Typical duties will involve:

  • Supporting the delivery of leadership programmes and ensure that all projects are delivered on time, within budget and in line with quality standards
  • Liaise with designated organisations and agencies in order to contribute to improvements and promote political and managerial leadership programmes; undertake research and gather intelligence to contribute to the continuous improvement of the leadership programmes and share findings across the company
  • Develop and maintain positive relationships with councils and councillors in order to understand priorities and needs, develop policy and share good practice
  • Work as part of a team, contributing towards building a culture of flexible and collaborative team working to ensure that the company meets its business objectives and responds effectively to new or changing requirements
  • Arrange meetings and produce papers and follow up actions as required
  • Prepare reports and briefings to support and promote the leadership programmes and brief internal and external contacts on policy and/or technical issues in order to influence opinion and stimulate debate

This IMMEDIATE opportunity will be offered initially as a Temporary role, as they require someone to start ASAP. They will consider the successful candidate to convert permanently thereafter.

This position can work 100% remotely or have a hybrid working environment home/London office, whatever suits the successful candidate the most.

With regret, due to the volume of CVs we receive, only suitable candidates will be contacted.
