Two-year fixed term contract
Our transformation agenda in Norfolk Children’s Service is succeeding for children and young people.
With a growing track record of successful projects and further large scale change underway, we are looking to expand our highly skilled team with the focus to drive forward transformation at pace. Now is a fantastic moment to join our agenda;
- You have the support from and direct access to our senior leaders who are open to new ideas and people who think differently
- We have a substantial investment fund to deploy (£12m) and a mandate to make change happen,
- You would be joining a strong and growing transformation team with a great reputation
- There are major programmes in place with significant momentum, but also substantial scope to develop new schemes, projects and concepts from the ground up
As a Business Design and Change Manager, you’ll challenge the status quo and generate ideas through insight across Norfolk County Council and externally, using facilitation and innovation tools to prompt the flow of ideas and generate positivity about change.
You’ll convert ideas into ambitious proposals to formulate strong, evidence based and robust business cases, with confidence in the idea to secure sign off. You will build squads that will drive development and delivery and will initiate handover to business as usual at the optimum time.
Appropriate challenge and support to senior managers, business and workstream leads is a key part of this role. And you will coach colleagues in business design and change techniques to develop a transformational culture and ethos in children’s services.
With a track record of change management and leadership, you’ll evidence your creativity in developing new solutions, applying concepts from one area to another and making it happen. As a strong communicator and influencer, you’ll build energy around the agenda with financial acumen to understand financial triggers in a complex organisation.
Public or private sector - you’ll be the ideas person with exceptional change and transformation skills. You’ll have the intellectual curiosity to systematically change outcomes for children and young people.
