Innovative Flood Resilience Project Officer

Featured Job

West Northamptonshire Council
£25,868 - £29,474
Fixed Term
One Angel Square - Northampton
Closing date:
31 October 2021 at midnight
West Northamptonshire Council is a single unitary council responsible for providing a range of public services to residents and businesses in the areas of Daventry, Northampton and South Northamptonshire. The new council has replaced Daventry District Council, Northampton Borough Council and South Northamptonshire Council, and now delivers all the services previously provided by these councils.

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Project Officer to support our exciting Defra-funded Innovative Flood Resilience project, seeking to combine flood resilience measures at three scales: catchment, community and property, to increase the resilience to flood risk in the affected communities.

The Project Officer role will have a specific focus on community flood resilience, engaging and working with residents, businesses and community representatives, to support delivery of innovative measures to improve their resilience. The role will also provide support to the project team as well as multiple delivery partners and consultants. Therefore, candidates will need to be able to demonstrate excellent communication skills and experience of successful engagement, as well as working with and being part of a wider project team.

To ensure that the project delivers on its aims to be innovative, the post holder will need to be able to challenge standard approaches and ways of working and be able to demonstrate resourcefulness and ability to work with others in solving problems. Whilst knowledge of flood risk management would be a benefit, it is not essential to the post if transferrable skills can be demonstrated.

The full extent of the role and candidate requirements are set out in the attached job description.

This is a fixed term role until 31 March 2027.

The post reports to the Innovative Flood Resilience Programme Manager within Assets and Environment, and will be part of the Flood and Water Management Team, which delivers the Council’s Lead Local Flood Authority functions.

For further information or an informal discussion, please contact Ruth Burnham, Senior Flood and Water Officer, by email or phone 07464 923072.

Closing date: 31/10/2021
Interview date: week commencing 08/11/2021
