Do you want to be part of the winning team?

Merton Council is an award winning local authority. We are partway through our journey to implement a series of major change projects, aimed at improving services provided to the local community whilst addressing legislative and efficiency challenges within the business through major systems improvement. We have developed a challenging and wide reaching improvement portfolio, and are now looking for an experienced programme practitioner who has the energy and ambition required to drive this programme forward.

As Corporate Programme Officer you’ll be central to ensuring projects and programmes within our portfolio are on track to deliver real, tangible results. The role is about assurance, best practice and being a role model for good PPM practice. It requires excellent oral and written communication skills, incorporating tact, sensitivity and assertiveness as you’ll be dealing with stakeholders at all levels of the organisation.

You will have experience of reporting, identifying benefits, mapping interdependencies, customising methodologies and ensuring that change projects deliver. If you are analytical yet creative, have strong leadership qualities but are a good team player, have the ability to influence but at the same time to be open to suggestions then come and join us.
