Programme and Planning Lead - 237623
 

Salary Scale: £40,792 - £50,132
FTE: 1 (35 hours/week)
Term: Fixed Term (31 March 2020)
Closing Date: 20/08/2019

This is a new and exciting opportunity to join and lead CELCIS Programme Office (PO). The PO is at the heart of helping CELCIS deliver on its strategic ambitions and operational plans. The successful candidate will have the chance to shape and develop how the PO can identify and support strategic opportunities and decision making, as well as supporting the effective and efficient delivery of complex change initiatives that improve the lives of children and families in Scotland and across the globe.

We are looking for someone to share and live our values of being bold, people-oriented, collaborative, innovative and ambitious as these speak perfectly to what is needed to strengthen the benefits of what the PO is delivering. You will thrive working in a highly collaborative way as you implement planned and iterative improvements in how CELCIS governs, assures and manages its work.

You will have experience in a related role – running change programmes or a project or programme office, or in quality improvement, evaluation, or service management. You will be highly organised and motivated, an effective communicator with a strong ability to engage, listen, and interact with people in a way that is supportive, constructive and challenging where necessary.

As CELCIS delivers all its work through and in partnership with multiple agencies, an ability to adapt, flex and change plans and expectations is a must.

This role reports to the Head of Central Services and is responsible for leading and managing a small PMO team (three posts) with wider roles and support from others across Central Services – administration, business development, finance and comms and events. Candidates will be expected to have experience and understanding of leading a team, resourcing and capacity management.

As with all posts in the team, this post is initially funded to March 2020, with indicative funding for a further 2 years.
