We are looking for a Manager to lead on Fixed Term Projects

New Year, New Challenge???

Summary of the role

Inclusion Gloucestershire delivers to a range of diverse projects, all user-led and all with the aim to provide a voice and improve the lives of disabled people. We are seeking someone with a range of project management skills who can enable us to deliver to a number of fixed term projects, some small, some larger. These projects will last for 12 months in most cases, so ability to demonstrate impact over a short period of time is essential. Co-production will be an integral part of your work and will need to be factored into project planning, methodology and timescales.  The role also includes some direct people management, and you will need to have proven leadership skills.

This role will initially be managing one or two fixed term projects commissioned by the NHS and Local Authority. The NHS funded project aims to make sure that people with a learning disability and those who are autistic (Experts by Experience) have a voice when it comes to planning and delivering health services. We will do this by supporting the setting up of more self-advocacy groups across the South West, and by bringing people from different groups together to have a really strong voice on health issues and other important matters. The project employs a team of one Coordinator and two Experts by Experience to deliver this project over 12 months, facilitating ongoing engagement with people with a learning disability or autism about having their views, choices and health issues taken account of, and with the wider public about disability issues.

Job purpose: To lead, develop, monitor and report on fixed term projects, ensuring that staff are well supported, funders are well informed, and the project delivers against deadlines and targets to the highest possible standards.
