Our aim is for everyone in the National Church Institutions (NCIs) to feel that they belong, and are valued for who they are and what they contribute. Together, our people contribute in different ways towards our common purpose, whichever NCI they work in and whatever their background.
The National Safeguarding Team provides professional safeguarding advice to the Church of England on matters of national policy as part of its wider transformation plan, which includes the development and implementation of national policy, training, quality assurance and audit, and work with survivors. The national safeguarding team also leads complex casework and supports dioceses in their safeguarding of children and adults.
As a project support officer, you won’t only perform routine administrative duties like minute taking – rather, your responsibilities will be inextricably tied to the success of the project you are working on. Driving everything forward from planning to implementation, your actions will directly influence the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the project.
Every project is different and therefore your duties will change accordingly. However, for the most part, you will be responsible for monitoring project schedules, tracking tasks progress and liaising with key stakeholders.
As the project manager’s right-hand person, you will play an important role in project planning and risk and issue management. Moreover, you will log, manage and analyse information on the progress of the project, using different planning tools.
You will be highly organised, dynamic, flexible, punctual and proactive suggesting process improvements to help move the project ahead
