Purpose of job

To project-manage change across a diverse portfolio of work that will deliver the culture change required to ensure the success of CMS’s strategic plan. In particular, building an evidence-based learning culture that is inclusive, empowering and collaborative.

Key relationships

The role will work closely with the Global People and Learning group. The nature of the role will entail highly collaborative working across the organisation: • all teams at CMS, working especially closely with directors and managers • external consultants or agencies as required (for example, commissioning evaluation reports) • line-manage the Learning and Change Officer (a new role to be recruited in a year’s time)

Key responsibilities

Provide project management expertise for the organisational development plan that will deliver the culture change to ensure the success of CMS’s strategic plan. This is a diverse portfolio of work, including diversity and inclusion, leadership development and other vital areas of culture change. It requires close collaboration with the HR and Learning managers in the team and working collaboratively across the organisation to effectively implement. • Enable the development of a learning and evidence-driven culture through projectmanaging CMS’s planning and reporting cycles and by building capability in teams and hubs so they can effectively monitor, evaluate and demonstrate impact. This may involve commissioning and project-managing specialist support where such need is identified, to ensure effective frameworks, systems and processes are in place. • Manage the approach to our internal communications planning, which includes identifying the requirements of internal communications channels (collaborating with ICT on implementation); reviewing requirements across CMS; and developing content and engagement strategies across these platforms with a focus on embedding the strategic direction and supporting change and culture work across the organisation. • Project-manage any changes that may be required relating to the governance and membership of CMS, ensuring excellent consultation processes are implemented for all stakeholders. • Provide project management expertise across CMS. This will include developing and maintaining appropriate project management tools and documentation to ensure the smooth and timely delivery of work packages; advising on project timelines and working with stakeholders to ensure the delivery of projects. • Project-manage any new projects, as required, that will support the delivery of CMS’s new strategic plan and effect the culture change required to ensure its success.


 Ensure the safety and security, and respect the rights, of all staff, partners and supporters: o Understand and follow the CMS safeguarding policies. o Understand and follow the CMS GDPR policy. o Understand and follow security procedures for all materials and content that is made public, to keep mission personnel and strategic partners safe. • Carry out any additional duties commensurate with the role as required by your line manager. 

Values and behaviours

All CMS line-managerial roles are expected to manage and lead in accord with CMS’s values and behaviours. In doing this, a CMS manager should display those managerial competencies and approaches which support these values and behaviours as well as the building of a culture which sustains the success of the new CMS strategy. In particular, CMS gives priority to: • Developing a learning culture • Developing a safe culture (which embeds safeguarding in all we do) • GDPR compliance • Cross-team working • Diversity and inclusion • Embedding mission spirituality across CMS • Empowerment and coaching
