Can you help us become London's Best Council?

Merton Council is an award winning local authority. We are on a journey to be best in London, aimed at improving services for the local community whilst addressing legislative and efficiency challenges.

We are partway through the implementation of a challenging and wide-reaching improvement portfolio of major change projects, and are looking for an experienced project and programme management practitioner who has the energy, ambition and interpersonal skills required to drive this forward.

As the Corporate Programmes Officer you'll be a key cog to ensuring projects and programmes within our portfolio are on track, and managing risks and resources effectively. This role is about quality assurance, relationship building and being a role model for good PPM practice. It requires excellent oral and written communication skills, and a mixture of 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, and ensuring that change projects deliver. You will be adaptable and flexible, able to offer support to a wide variety of projects, and willing to jump in where needed. 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!
