Central London Forward (CLF) is the strategic partnership for Central London covering the local authorities of Camden, the City of London, Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Wandsworth and Westminster. Our goal is to improve the lives of our residents by working together to drive inclusive growth within the Central London area, to ensure our residents access the skills, jobs, homes, and support required to benefit from Central London’s dynamic economy.
Central London Works is a new employability programme designed to help out of work resident’s living in Central London in to quality, well-paid jobs. This is an ambitious new project that gives us exciting scope to explore ways of creating opportunities for people with complex needs, and increasing employment among disadvantaged groups. Now, we’re looking for an experienced Project Officer to play a core role in the project’s success.
As a Project Officer you’ll provide vital administrative support to a team of six in the Central London Works programme office. You will enjoy a wide range of responsibilities - from supporting meetings, through to helping with the production of risk registers. The Senior Contract Manager will rely on your help with coordinating activities and information for various reports and board papers. Along the way, you will liaise with diverse stakeholders by post, email, telephone and in person - including local authorities and our project co-funders, the European Social Fund and the Department for Work and Pensions.
You will bring to the role proven experience in an administrative post, supporting large scale projects - ideally focused on economic regeneration. Previous experience of administering projects funded by the European Social Fund would be an advantage but is not essential. You will demonstrate extensive knowledge of IT applications, especially the Microsoft Office suite. Your administrative skills will span diary coordination, enquiry response, minute and report writing, and handling confidential information. Excellent organisational and problem-solving skills are essential. Equally important will be a flair for communication, both in person and in writing, and the ability to build good working relationships with colleagues and external stakeholders.
In return for your hard work and dedication, we’ll offer you staff benefits that include 28 days’ holiday, a subsidised staff restaurant, a season ticket loan and a variety of discounts on City services and local shops.
