Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
The Performance, Insight and Improvement team (PII) is a multi-disciplinary team of analysts and improvement specialists who work across Adult Social Care & Health ; encompassing Housing, Adult Social Care & Public Health. The service helps operational teams to robustly monitor and improve performance and quality, to gain more sophisticated insight into the needs and experiences of our customers, and to design and deliver lasting improvements across our services. Building on the success of our first three years, the team is expanding, so this is an exciting time to join us.
This post is placed in supporting the delivery of Skills Academy, the Learning and Development function within PII, and offering support to other Learning and Development activities as required.
The Learning coordinator is the first point of contact for both learners and Management in the directorate when it comes to all things ‘learning’. Whilst being responsible for day to day routine tasks, this role is instrumental in helping to put together the projects we work on, and essential in making sure that they happen as planned.
The post is responsible for keeping records accurate and data up to date, which forms the basis for how we put together strategies and make decisions on improvements to the existing service offer.
Working closely with fellow PII colleagues and various leadership teams, the Learning Coordinator plays a big part in taking agreed strategies and helping translate them in to plans that become a reality. This work enables staff across the directorate to reach their full potential with excellent personal development programmes and initiatives. Ultimately, it enables a more competent provision of services across the directorate and better outcomes for our residents.
The ideal candidate will be an excellent coordinator, with the ability to prioritise and be responsive to changing demands in needs across the directorate. You’ll be someone who is structured, with an eye for detail and a desire to get things right first time for our service users.
You’ll be a proactive problem solver, and feel comfortable finding solutions when challenges arise. You’ll be someone who is a friendly and effective communicator, comfortable with liaising with both external and internal stakeholders at all levels of the organisation.
Most importantly, you’ll be someone who is people focused and understands the aims of the service. You’ll possess a ‘team player’ mind-set, working closely with your colleagues to help maintain the best possible offer together.
