Emerging Talent Programme Officer
£10.85 per hour, 25 hours per week
Closing date: 22 March 2021, 10 am

There is a well-recognised lack of Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) diversity in the built environment profession with a narrow talent pool entering the sector. This is at odds with the well-publicised benefits of increasing diversity in organisations, specifically, new perspectives, a greater capacity for creativity and innovation and competitive advantage.

The Emerging Talent Programme’s (ETP) vision is to create a sustainable legacy by providing a diverse pipeline of participants with the skills and values to become the next leaders in London’s housing and regeneration sectors. The programme will fast-track participant’s learning through a rotating placement in a range of housing organisations. By bringing a varied pool of new talent and a diverse future leadership pipeline into housing and regeneration, participating organisations and the wider sector will benefit; both now and for years to come.

We are now looking for a committed administrator to help take the programme forward through the exciting phase of initiation, launch and delivery. Your role is to provide administrative support for our new Emerging Talent Programme. This includes managing enquiries, updating the CRM, logging applications, helping to set up the assessment centre, liaising with host organisations and participants, setting up and maintaining records on participants’ progress. Overall ensuring all arrangements are in place to ensure the smooth running of the programme.
