Contract opportunity - Interim Project Officer for LARCH

The LARCH (Local Access in Redcar & Cleveland and Hartlepool) Partnership is seeking an Interim LARCH Project Officer. 

We are currently recruiting for a full time LARCH Programme Manager but would like to contract someone on a consultancy or secondment basis to carry out preparatory operationalisation work on the LARCH Programme, while we undertake the recruitment into the permanent post. It's likely this post will be required between October and December 2021 with an initial commitment of two days per week (to be kept under review).

LARCH (Local Access in Redcar & Cleveland and Hartlepool) is a new long-term programme (five to seven years), funded by the Access Foundation and Big Society Capital to support the growth and development of the social economies in Redcar & Cleveland and Hartlepool, through enterprise development support and access to blended social investment.

The LARCH Partnership is looking for an experienced and highly skilled Project Officer with a broad range of project management skills and experience, who can work effectively with a wide range of stakeholders to deliver the initial operationalisation activities, up to and beyond the launch of the LARCH programme between October and December 2021. Initially, VONNE is the accountable body for the LARCH programme and will be the contracting body for this post.

The closing date for responses to this opportunity is 12 noon on October 4th 2021.
