About The Role

Location: Flexible  
Contract type: Permanent 


Can you promote a culture of co-production and engagement and bring to life our vision that the people the British Red Cross aims to support are fully engaged in the design, delivery, and evaluation of our UK services?

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Co-production Manager to join our Insight & Improvement Directorate. The Co-production Manager will lead our Co-production agenda across our UK Operations, managing a team and workstreams to deliver co-production and engagement (C&E) initiatives, test new C&E models, build the skills and capabilities of staff and volunteers to undertake C&E activity via training and tools, evidence their impact, and showcase best practice internally and externally.

This is an ideal time to join: we are testing a national participation model enabling people most impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic to influence our response; we are embedding co-production and community engagement approaches into planning and delivery of services around three cause areas - disasters and emergencies, migration and displacement and health inequalities - under our new 10-year corporate strategy; we have a renewed strategic commitment to using person-centred approaches within our services, but also our communications and advocacy activity.

Putting people in crisis at the heart of what we do is essential to ensuring that our services are relevant, accessible, and meet the needs of people from diverse groups and those who most need our support. 
 

What we are looking for?
We are keen to hear from candidates with a proven record of developing and leading co-production and engagement initiatives and of leading a team of staff or volunteers. You must be able to build strong and effective alliances, communicate with and influence a range of audiences, and manage multiple projects in a dynamic environment with often changing and competing priorities.

Post Covid19 restrictions, an element of travel will be important as this role has a national remit. 

Given that this role intends to support co-production and engagement with experts by experience, we would particularly encourage candidates who have lived experience relevant to our UK service offer to apply for this position, or to get in touch should they have any queries.
 

Closing date for applications is 23:59 on the 1st of November 2020 with first stage interviews scheduled to take place via Zoom on the 11th & 12th of November.

We offer a wide range of staff benefits, these include:
- 36 days holiday (including Bank Holidays)
- Option to buy an extra 5 days annual leave
- Up to 6% contributory pension
- Flexible working policy


A little bit more about us...

Our organisation was born out of a desire to bring help without discrimination. Impartiality and neutrality have been central values for the Red Cross since we started.
At the British Red Cross, we are looking for the best people to help us provide support to millions of people affected by crisis in the UK. We want our team to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve, offering equal opportunities to everyone, regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, or disability. 

Diversity is something we celebrate and we want you to be able to be yourself at work and feel you’re in a great position to help us spread the power of kindness. 

In the British Red Cross, we will not tolerate any form of misconduct, including sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse. We have a code of conduct in place and are committed to creating a culture of integrity in the organisation where misconduct is not tolerated, situations of abuse are quickly investigated and perpetrators are dealt with effectively.
