Job Title: Projects Manager – Member Services
Working For: National Association of Local Councils (NALC)
Location: Internet (Working from home)
Salary: £35,000 per annum
Are you passionate about local government and supporting local communities? Do you have a track record of delivering projects in a complex and dynamic environment? Are you enthused by working with a wide mix of people to deliver engaging and responsive projects? If so then you might well be the right person to join NALC at what is a crucial time for the organisation.
NALC is the membership body for English local (town and parish) councils. There are around 10,000 councils in England with over 125,000 councillors. They hold a wide range of assets, raise about £600m per annum from residents through a small share of council tax, called a precept and support communities to the tune of around £2bn annually.
We are supported by a network of 43 county associations, independent bodies who support councils on the ground and set our objectives and strategic plan.
NALC is intent on delivering ever more high-quality services and interventions on behalf of its members. This new role is an exciting opportunity to work on a variety of projects, engaging with a wide range of stakeholders to make a lasting impact on NALC and our services.
Central to this role is the delivery of three key projects: the Local Council Award Scheme, E-learning and new website development. Working with colleagues, county associations and external stakeholders you will improve the ways these projects are delivered to ensure they are delivering the best quality possible whilst being financially sustainable.
Highly organised and with the ability of prioritising and working to deadlines, you will need to have a strong track record of project management together with the ability to quickly develop good working relationships with elected Members, staff, county associations and corporate partners. Knowledge of local government structures and practices or experience of e-learning platforms will be helpful, but not essential.
