An exciting opportunity has arisen at the East of England Local Government Association for a Policy and Programme Manager to support our work with the 50 local councils in the East of England and their strategic partners.

The Policy and Programme Manager is a key member of the association team and manages an interesting and complex programme of work on behalf of the association.

Responsibilities currently include:

  • management of the Wider South East Programme focussed on delivering greater co-operation / co-ordination on strategic growth and infrastructure issues in the wider south east geography and supporting the east's engagement in the London Plan
  • working with key stakeholders and strategic leads to deliver on Transport East projects, programmes and plans
  • delivery of specific lead member networks and associated work
  • support to the chairman of the association through the provision of relevant briefings
  • secretarial support to SMT on the governance structures of the association.

Whilst you would take responsibility for the work programmes identified above, the role covers a wide variety of policy areas and responsibilities which are determined on the needs and priorities of the association's membership. 

The role sits within a small team who deliver the association's core policy work programme, but as a small organisation staff are required to work across teams as required by the needs of the association.

The role would suit someone with a keen interest in public policy issues. It requires someone with experience in project and / or programme management, a highly developed sense of political awareness, as well as the ability to effectively manage relationships with external stakeholders to deliver positive outcomes.
