Job Details

An exciting opportunity has arisen to make a real difference as to how services in York work for children, young people and families. We are looking for a Project and Audit Coordinator to Support the Head of Innovation and Children’s Champion.

The post will be involved in projects that will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of services working across multiple teams and agencies. The post plays and important role in developing new ways of working and in particular the delivery of York’s Family Hubs Transformation Programme.

The post also plays a key role in supporting children’s services understand the quality of practice and performance and make improvements where necessary. This will focus across early help and children’s social care.

This post is fixed term until 31/03/2024.

For CYC employees this vacancy is available as a secondment opportunity. Candidates must seek permission of their current line manager before applying for a secondment opportunity.

City of York Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults, and expects all employees and volunteers to share this commitment. We require the successful candidate to undertake an enhanced Criminal Record check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.

As this role is public facing, applicants will need to demonstrate, at interview, their competency to converse and provide advice and guidance to members of the public, in spoken English to CEFR level C1: Can express him/herself fluently and spontaneously, almost effortlessly. Only a conceptually difficult subject can hinder a natural, smooth flow of language.

At the moment due to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, some of our staff are working remotely from home but a return to a combination of working remotely and physically from the Council’s offices is anticipated in the near future.

As a new starter, your contractual location will be the designated council office for your team. Your working arrangements will vary according to your service and role, and the current Government guidance. For many roles, there will be more opportunities in the future for remote and hybrid working. However, this comes with the expectation that, as workplaces open up, there is likely to be an ongoing and occasional requirement to attend the workplace.

The Council is highly committed to investing in the talent and wellbeing of our staff and can offer a generous annual leave allowance, access to the Local Government Pension Scheme, comprehensive Health & Wellbeing initiatives and a reward package which recognises your contribution. We can offer flexible working practices, community engagement and volunteer activities and, as part of our commitment to you, promote continuous Learning & Development. In addition we also offer a growing range of discounts, rewards and savings.
