Nottingham, hybrid, permanent (two-year FTC)

Job description, key responsibilities and experience

Salary: £39,570, progressing to £41,591.
Closing date for applications: Friday 2 September 2022.

Nottingham is a vibrant and diverse place to live, and as a council, we’re committed to helping our communities grow and thrive and dedicated to making our services the best they can be. From our ambition to be the UK’s first carbon-neutral city by 2028 to our celebrated transport system, and from the work to redesign our city centre into an open and welcoming space to our award winning parks, leisure and cultural facilities, we’re a city with a lot to offer.

As an employer, we want to give you the opportunity to be part of our journey. We’re building a solid future, ensuring our citizens, businesses, investors and visitors can enjoy a flourishing city. We won’t stand still and are looking for new people to join our organisation, deliver our services and create the ideas that will make Nottingham a world-class city for everyone.

Who we are looking for

When you join us in this role, you’ll help to:

  • inform and influence strategy and business decisions
  • problem solve, supporting managers to find resolutions
  • monitor benefits realisation
  • undertake a forensic approach using performance data to support financial forecasting, and
  • exploit opportunities for the transformation programmes.

This will be achieved by expert analysis and interpretation of data and financial information, ensuring that added value is provided from the support and advice you give. You will work closely with data analysts and be expected to forge strong working relationships with all internal and external colleagues.

We want someone who is dynamic, keeps up to date with national and local issues and the changing face of legislation, interprets data and trend analysis and is able to interpret the impact of that information on the transformation programme objectives.

Other responsibilities will be to provide accurate and timely professional support and update, advise on and challenge programmes, projects, business cases and decisions. You will be expected to offer advice that enables our leaders to make informed policy and funding decisions.

What we can give you

We’re one of our region’s leading employers and provide our workforce with a generous annual leave package, starting at 25 days plus bank holidays and the opportunity to purchase more. We promote flexible, hybrid ways of working and will double your monthly pension contributions via the Local Government Pension Scheme. We place high value in investing in our people and have a wide range of support, training and development programmes in place.

If you can match our ambition for Nottingham to be a world-class city for everyone, we want to hear from you. We aim to have a workforce that reflects our city’s diversity and particularly want to hear from candidates from BAME communities, as well as individuals that identify as having a disability.
