A client of mine, who is a local authority based in Wales, is in need of a Programme Officer. This is due to a programme that they are setting up as part of the Economic Acceleration and Regeneration Through Innovation.
The programme is supported through the European Social Fund Priority Axis 5 – Public Reform and Regional Working and is a partnership between the client and neighbouring councils.
The regional programme will focus on the 4 key areas of Economic Development, Energy, Land Use Planning and Transport and will help build the required capacity, capability and administrative arrangements within Wales.
The post holder will be required to work with the programme co-ordinators within the City Region to bring together data on current projects and opportunities identified at a Local Authority level to work regionally.
The successful applicant will have extensive experience of programme management and project development in a variety of settings, and be able to identify gaps in service delivery within the local area and region and create, with partners, bespoke opportunities to build institutional capacity.
The post requires a degree or equivalent in a related field of Economic Development, Energy, Land Use Planning or Transport.
Welsh language skills are not necessary.
