Engagement and Monitoring Lead

Caerphilly County Borough Council
Engagement and Monitoring Lead
Job description
We are seeking an experienced community engagement professional to join the council's engagement team at a very exciting time on our journey of change.

The Engagement and Monitoring Lead post will join the team on a fixed term basis to 31 st March 2025, and will be instrumental in helping support the delivery of the council's exciting and bold over-arching change programme for the county borough.

The post, funded by the UK Government's Shared Prosperity Fund will primarily have responsibility for engagement and monitoring against key themes through the council's Shared Prosperity Fund programme.

Working as part of the wider corporate engagement team, the postholder will help build upon existing dialogue with the communities we serve, engaging with and involving residents and other stakeholders in the delivery of key change programmes - particularly the Shared Prosperity Fund local investment plan - and highlighting opportunities that exist to participate in and influence decision making across these areas.

In addition, the postholder will specialise in:

Building and maintaining strong relationships with a wide range of stakeholders - including the Cabinet Member and Corporate Director, public sector partners, UK Government, business community, communities, and the voluntary sector.

Using innovative approaches to develop engagement strategies to ensure customer/stakeholder data and insight is central to decision making aligned to the Shared Prosperity Fund local investment plan.

Promote the principles of effective and meaningful consultation and engagement across the Council, with particular focus within the Regeneration and Planning division - the lead delivery service for the Shared Prosperity Fund.

Support best practice and work alongside colleagues in equalities and Welsh language to ensure the highest standards are adhered to.

Advise key internal stakeholders on the most effective approaches to quality engagement and monitoring, including appropriate messaging and techniques.

Ensure data and insight are central to shaping Shared Prosperity Fund funded interventions and the programme's wider themes, and that effective monitoring is carried out in accordance with the communities' aspirations and performance requirements.

Ensure consultation activity is carried out to the highest standard, in line with the National Principles for Public Consultation in Wales and the Gunning Principles.

Work alongside the wider corporate engagement team to further develop the Council's ongoing 'Caerphilly Conversation' - adding capacity and expertise and ensuring the Shared Prosperity Fund central themes are captured throughout the ongoing conversation with a range of stakeholders.
