You should have strong communication and research skills as well as knowledge of best practice and relevant legislation.
Experience of contributing to policy, strategy formulation and developing performance management will be essential to this post. You must have a sound understanding and experience of risk management and assurance, preferably in a local authority environment.
In return you will benefit from 24 days annual leave (rising to 29 after 5 years’ service), subsidised gym membership and car parking, payment of professional fees, entitlement to join the local government pension scheme, and non-contributory life assurance.
