Are you looking to develop a career in commissioning of education places or perhaps wishing to consolidate your career in an area where you can see with your own eyes, the impact you make in the lives of children and young people?  If you are, this is an opportunity for you to join a team of dedicated professionals to deliver the Council’s strategic objective of providing sufficient high quality education places in order to meet growing demand.

As Children’s Capital Commissioning Officer, you will have a strong work ethic and be able to forward plan, dealing with conflicting demands in order to meet deadlines.  You will also have excellent communication and negotiation skills in order to engage with a wide range of stakeholders.  Your experience of producing high-quality reports and briefing papers will enable you to commission feasibility studies on capital, maintenance or improvements works, condition surveys and other services required to improve education provision in the borough.  Although it would be beneficial if you have some knowledge of national and local government policies relating to the funding and maintenance of education settings, it is not essential as training can be provided.
