Further Information

Gateshead Council is embarking upon an ambitious transformation programme to re-design its Early Help and Adults/ Children's Social Care business processes with the aim of getting to a future state model that will support in the configuration of a new case management system that will help shape the system's design.

The redesign will be managed by a comprehensive number of projects feeding into an overall Programme which will be managed by the Programme Manager, reporting to a Programme Board made up of Service Directors from across the Council.

The Programme aims to capitalise on the new technologies available in case management systems, allowing increased mobile working, ensuring we are best placed to potentially integrate with our partner agencies in the long-term health and social care agenda.

The role of Project Support will support the overall Programme by coordinating the 40+ individual projects, booking meetings, and taking notes. It is vital for the Programme to have support in place to ensure the smooth running of the 2 years of work, it will be exceedingly busy and a thoroughly enjoyable role. You must be well organised, and enjoy working with others from a variety of specialisms across children's and adults services. The role would be suitable for professionals and graduates, and would be a great way to get into project and programme management.
