Looking for your next challenge? An opportunity has arisen for a Consultation Officer within Richmond and Wandsworth Councils’ busy Resident Engagement Team. You will be responsible for undertaking staff and public consultations and providing guidance and support to colleagues seeking to engage with communities.

We are a small and supportive team working within a unique shared staffing arrangement. We deliver high quality, often high-profile consultations across both Councils, to ensure we involve residents in the planning of our services and give people a real voice in decision-making.

To join us you’ll need to be up-to-date with consultation best practice, and able to plan, deliver and analyse consultations to a high standard. Confident in advising staff at all levels, you’ll be highly organised and able to write clearly and effectively for a variety of audiences. Analytical skills, accuracy and attention to detail are important requirements of the role, as are experience of data collection methods and social media. A knowledge of consultation software is also desirable.

In return, we can offer you a competitive salary and working arrangements that will enhance your work/life balance. These include flexible and home working and a generous holiday allowance of 31 days plus bank holidays. In addition, we offer a range of staff benefits such as membership of the Local Government pension scheme, home technology and cycle to work schemes, interest-free season ticket loans and staff discounts for sport and leisure activities, restaurants and shops.
