Job description

Department: People Experience

Interview date: 7 and 8 October 2020

Contract Duration: 31/03/2021

Do you want to work for an organisation that makes a difference, every single day, to people from all walks of life? The people that turn to Citizens Advice need help overcoming obstacles in their lives; from debt to evictions to trouble at work, and you can be key to them getting the support they need in the quickest, easiest, and most effective way.

We particularly welcome applications from disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates as BAME and disabled people are currently under-represented throughout Citizens Advice. We are a member of the race equality campaign at Business in the Community and are committed to improving employment opportunities for ethnic minorities across the UK. We also welcome applications from, LGB and Trans and non-binary candidates.

We have made a positive commitment to employing disabled people and guarantee to interview all disabled candidates who meet the minimum essential criteria for the role as set out in role profiles.

Last year, Citizens Advice helped 2.6 million people face-to-face, by phone, email and webchat, and we received 25 million visits to our digital advice content. We solve 7 in 10 clients problems, and 4 in 5 tell us that advice improved their lives.

We look for people to help us improve and transform our organisation. We can offer you the opportunity to make a genuine impact and create lasting change within an organisation that makes a difference in the lives of millions of people every year.

One of our strategic ambitions, articulated in our current strategic framework, is to advance equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI). This includes addressing equality disparities and the barriers to accessing our services and creating an inclusive working environment service wide. We aim to create a culture that is collaborative and innovative and that adapts to the changing needs of our clients. EDI will be fundamental to this culture.

This role is a fixed-term position and will be responsible for planning and managing the delivery of complex projects in order to progress the EDI strategy and meet defined business needs within the agreed parameters of cost, timescales and quality. This includes overseeing and developing all planning and operational processes, project work plans, action plans including defining resources and utilising appropriate project management tools and methodologies from discovery phase to project/ programme completion for medium to high-scale projects. 

You’ll be in charge of project managing the Barriers to Access programme which is organisationally cross-cutting and the EDI goals which are in the Future of Advice strategic framework. This will include working with a wide range of stakeholders and ensuring that the appropriate KPIs and metrics are in place, managed and tracked.

The EDI team is undergoing a review of their organisational offering and approach. This role will also support activities under this workstream and provide project management support, guidance and advice.

Please note, in the event of a high number of applications, we reserve the right to close the application early.

The National Citizens Advice Operates from offices in England and Wales, with 5 regional offices based in Cardiff, London, Birmingham, Leeds, and Liverpool, therefore all successful applicants must be based within England or Wales.
