Organisation Development & Change Practitioner

Date posted: February 14, 2020
£350.00 - £400.00 per day +
Essex, England
Job description

I am working with a Public Sector Body based in Chelmsford who are looking for an experienced Organisation Development & Change Practitioner for 12 months.

The role is part time (3 days per week), to start ASAP and paying £350 - £450 Ltd per day. The role is Out of Scope of IR35.

The organisation is one of the largest and most dynamic local authorities in the UK, serving a population of 2 million residents, and has a very successful track record of delivering transformational change.

They anticipated change was needed in the public sector and has worked to deliver better quality at lower cost. They have an ambitious transformation agenda, -one with the scope to reach every part of the organisation. They are changing the way they think, the way they work, and the ways in which they deliver their services. They are committed to becoming a place where individuals, partners and communities feel proud to play their role and genuinely want to belong.

They are currently embarking on a new and exciting programme of activity within the Customer portfolio. The Modernising Customer Contact Programme (MCCP) is an initiative focusing on three key projects - Mitel Telephony Upgrade, Mitel Improvement Projects and Channel Shift Projects.

Within each project there is a programme of activity planned. They work in a collaborative way to remove/reduce non-value add customer contact, improve the customer experience and ensure that we have an efficient, modern Contact Centre, which provides appropriate information and great customer service.

Organisations are increasingly delivering web-based methods of communication to enhance customer experience and reduce unnecessary calls into Contact Centres. Similarly, they are moving towards delivering a more sophisticated website to enable customers to easily access services without the need to call the Contact Centre. This will be underpinned by guidance and support for vulnerable customers who are unable to use this channel of communication.

The Organisation Development & Change Practitioner will join a multifaceted team delivering MCCP. It will develop creative and innovative interventions within the Contact Centre which engage, motivate and ultimately empower leaders and their teams to take ownership for their development. This will change the conversation we have with their residents, where although they will reduce calls, the expectation is that the calls they do take will be more complex, with their most vulnerable residents.

This role will act as an internal consultant and hands-on trainer to provide expert advice, support and challenge to the organisation in the design, delivery and evaluation of effective Contact Centre development and change interventions to foster a high performing culture where learning, change and diversity are the norm.

This role will work collaboratively across ODP & Service Design maximising the contribution, value and credibility this practice makes throughout the organisation.

They need someone who can deliver operational change as well strategic thinking. You will be able to demonstrate a track record of not only scoping what our services could look like but also plays a key role in operationally implementing and rolling out change in partnership with programme leads.
