Head of Projects
£36,000 – £40,000 per annum [depending on experience]
Plus 8.5% pension contribution after successful completion of probationary period.
Full-time (35 hours a week).
This is an exciting and challenging senior leadership role that is pivotal to the continued success of Citizens Advice Wandsworth (CAW).
The Head of Projects has overall responsibility for the delivery of our range of projects as well as for the development of our local relationships. This includes leadership of our award-winning Hardship Crisis project which, delivered in partnership with Wandsworth Community Empowerment Network, connects our local faith, community, voluntary and statutory agencies with each other and with us, and builds the advice capacity of these local partners. The post holder also leads our service-user involvement work; enabling our clients to influence our service delivery, and to tell their stories to policy makers.
We’re not necessarily looking for someone with an advice background; more important is great project-management, people-management and relationship-building skills. It’s also important that your values align with ours and that you can demonstrate generosity, quality, accountability and creativity in how you work. We will support you to develop and learn.
We’re passionate about promoting equality, valuing diversity and working inclusively. We welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons particularly people with disabilities and Black, Asian and minority ethnic applicants, as these groups are currently under-represented in our management team.
