Senior Project and Policy Officer, Rough Sleeping
Job reference number: GLA3412
Do you want to play a key role in tackling the issue of rough sleeping in the capital?
An opportunity has arisen for a motivated and enthusiastic person to join the GLA, to procure, develop, manage and monitor a range of rough sleeping services and initiatives commissioned by the Mayor as part of his multi-million-pound Life off the Streets programme to tackle rough sleeping in the capital.
You will be responsible for managing and monitoring providers’ performance against contractual obligations and expected outcomes, managing and monitoring the budgets of contracted and grant-funded services, and taking ownership of operational and strategic issues. As part of this, you will work collaboratively with providers to ensure that the best possible outcomes are achieved, where necessary producing performance improvement action plans.
Experience of contract monitoring for homelessness or other social care services is vital, as is an understanding of procurement processes. You will have a good track record of building and maintaining relationships and, in particular, a sound knowledge of issues around supplier relationship management. You will also have excellent organisational, project planning and problem solving skills, and experience of systems change.
Please ensure your supporting statement clearly addresses the person specification criteria (technical requirements and behavioural competencies).
