We are looking for a dynamic Programme Officer to support the delivery of key transformational and service improvement projects within Children and Family Services.

You will be supporting the delivery of key service improvement projects, in line with emerging priorities across the service. This will include the Kinship Care Review, which is seeking to strengthen our approach to ‘friends and family’ care when a child is unable to remain safely with their birth parents.

You will have experience of working successfully on change projects within a fast paced environment, experience working within the social care arena and will have strong planning, interpersonal and communication skills. An ability to analyse, understand and interpret complex issues is important, as is the ability to build strong working relationships. An ability to manage stakeholder relationships and evidence strong partnership working is also desirable.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and energetic individual with the ability to work collaboratively within a small team.
