Coordinator – What Matters to You?
Reporting to: BBC Children in Need and The Hunter Foundation
Salary: Up to £40,000
Hours: Full-time (35 hours)
Contract Type: 36 Month Fixed-Term Contract – Secondment
BBC Children in Need and The Hunter Foundation (“The Funders”) in partnership with Dundee Council are developing a systemic change programme initiated in the Lochee community which will invest in strategies tailored to the needs of children and families in need of significant support to enable positive out-comes.
The aim of the role will be to use the voice of families through focus on a “what matters to you” approach to support the development of a ‘one door’ model of service provision. Working with key partners the role will develop improved access where needed. Day to day this will translate to focused liaison and relationship networking with external parties, direct interaction with communities and support services, project management and reporting.
To deliver this ambitious change programme we must engage an experienced Coordinator who will lead on the delivery of the project. Our ideal candidate will have local knowledge and bring Third Sector or Local Authority experience in an area which is focused on the welfare and /or development of children. Although the role is based in Lochee, there will be a need to travel within the Dundee area and from time to time to meetings outside of the authority.
Key skills and attributes will include the ability to build rapport and develop relationships, engage an audience, communicate effectively both in writing and orally, be self-motivated and driven to deliver the project plan, prioritise as needed, reporting, managing change effectively, and an overarching drive to deliver desired outcomes.
In summary this translates generally to a candidate with excellent project management, networking and presentation skills, effective utilisation of technology, and also essential to the role is a current and clean driving licence.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a highly motivated candidate with a systematic record of success in the delivery of social change projects. We would welcome response from individuals that have the relevant background described above and who are looking for a challenge which will support the positive changes for children and young people in the Lochee community. Please note your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org stating Reference DUNDEE18 and including your CV. The closing date for applications is close of business on 23rd November 2018 and interviews will be scheduled shortly thereafter.
