How to contact our team nationally and around the country
Your significant experience of programme management and
of delivery across a wide geographical area will come to the fore
when you join Groundwork as Operational Programme
We’ll look to you to lead and manage the
delivery of the Southern Water Home Visits Programme within budget,
and to the standards and timescales laid down in the contract.
Equally importantly, you will need to build effective relationships
with the client, internal colleagues, contractors and partners
ensuring the co-ordinated activity of the programme.
With a £multi-million budget, you’ll have full
responsibility for all operational activities relating to the
management of the Home Visits Programme, from defining deliverables
to delivering the work plan itself against changing needs and
requirements. You’ll also manage subcontractors and review
deliverables before forwarding all relevant information to the
client, and implement quality assurance procedures. Customer care
is critical, so you’ll need to develop processes to measure
customer satisfaction and track improvements and innovation.
Your remit covers a wide geographical area,
and it’s essential that you have a good background in initiating
and operating multi-year programmes of work, managing complex
operational programmes and geographically-spread teams, and working
at senior level in regeneration, sustainable development or
campaign delivery. You will also have developed systems and
processes, commissioned and managed consultancy contracts and
managed a significant budget.
It’s a role that will give you an
exceptionally high profile.
Closing date: 12 noon
