Package description

Are you looking for your next challenge, an opportunity to stretch your skills supporting high profile programmes in Richmond?

We are looking for a keen, enthusiastic and emotionally intelligent person to join our friendly and supportive team to assist with managing high profile physical and social regeneration projects.

You will need to be diligent and conscientious with experience of providing administrative and project management support as well as designing and delivering engagement events with residents, community groups and partners.

Working closely with the Programme Manager and Senior Project Officer for the Twickenham Riverside redevelopment and Ham Close Uplift programmes, you will provide support across these and new projects as they emerge.

This is an opportunity to be involved in innovative projects that are key Council priorities and to work with a range of communities and professionals to put local aspirations into action.

The role will sit in the Programme Team, part of the Chief Executive’s Division, within the Shared Staffing Arrangement for Richmond and Wandsworth Councils.

We need someone motivated and enthusiastic who has a partnership focus, an understanding of public engagement, has project support experience, excellent communication skills (both written and oral) and can work to often tight and changing deadlines.

There has never been a more challenging, or rewarding, time to work for Richmond and Wandsworth. We are positive and committed to listening to our residents, using complaints as a learning tool for service improvement. We look forward to receiving your application.

In return, we can offer you working arrangements that will enhance your work-life balance. Benefits include the possibility of flexitime (subject to service needs) and a generous holiday allowance of 31 days plus bank holidays.

In addition, we offer a range of staff benefits such as membership of the Local Government contributory pension scheme, childcare vouchers, new technology scheme, interest-free loans on annual travel cards, discounts at many leisure activities, restaurants, shops and other establishments. A wide range of developmental opportunities is also offered.
