A Programme Support Officer is required in the Business Change Team to support delivery of the Council's Change Programme. Working to the Programme Coordinator, the role will support staff with the effective monitoring and assurance of programme delivery including the creation and maintenance of programme documentation and RAID logs. The role will support governance structures such as programme boards and other meetings including programme development and risk workshops.


You will have experience of working in a programme or project environment with an understanding of project management methodology and managing stakeholders. You will also have good ICT skills with the full suite of MS Office tools particularly Excel. You will be a strong team player, but equally able to manage your own workload to agreed deadlines. Overall, you will be committed to delivering change and improvement to support the modernisation of The Council.
