It’s a challenging and exciting time to work for Cumberland Council which has recently celebrated its first year in operation.  We are looking for dynamic and motivated professionals to join us as part of the council’s Transformation team.

These roles are a fantastic chance to make a difference, putting health and wellbeing at the centre of everything we do, building inclusive economy, having a fairer society, protecting our environment and ultimately, delivering great public services. As well as further developing your knowledge and experience, you will work across the full project lifecycle, supporting scoping, initiation, implementation, delivery and benefits realisation. 

Cumberland Programme Management Office is within the Business Transformation and Change Directorate and supports ways of improving, governing, controlling, and assuring investment and change within the Council. 

There’s a wide variety of work that the team is focussed on, with opportunities for you to work alongside services across the authority from adult social care to assets and fleet and many more. An understanding of local government services is helpful, but we also welcome applications from other sectors. Our transformation programme is ambitious and covers a wide variety of projects from managing demand to workforce planning.

About the role

These high-profile roles will focus on shaping and delivering complex projects that help drive the Council’s transformation agenda and strategic priorities. This is a great opportunity to directly lead and shape projects alongside managing their delivery.  

The right candidates will confidently step into these roles and proactively facilitate and manage projects from design to delivery to high quality standards.

A proactive, customer focussed approach is important, as is experience of delivering change in a large and complex organisation. You will be able to work under pressure and effectively manage priorities and deadlines, while also being an excellent communicator who can engage with a wide variety of audiences and develop partnerships across stakeholders. 

We are looking for candidates who are adaptable and can thrive in an ever-changing working environment. If this sounds like you, and you’re ready for a new and rewarding career step, then please apply today.
