We are seeking a driven individual with strong analytical skills to join our Policy, Performance and Projects team as Policy and Performance Officer.

The Policy and Performance Officer role provides an opportunity to work at the centre of an ambitious and dynamic Local Authority organisation, influencing strategy and monitoring and reporting progress and delivery to senior decision makers. This is a varied job that provides an excellent platform upon which to build a career in local government.

The Policy and Performance Officer will act to promote the Council’s equalities scheme and as such an awareness of the equalities agenda, particularly within a local government context, is an important requirement for this role.
