We work in partnership with Bolton Council in the development and delivery of our Audit and Risk Management Services. We are seeking a Risk and Resilience Lead who can work across both Councils as part of a team to help maintain and develop our risk management and business continuity capabilities. This will involve you in high profile, interesting and challenging work providing expertise and support across areas as varied as cyber resilience, safeguarding and construction.
About the Candidate

As well as leading the delivery of reviews and assignments you recognise the value of collaborative working and work effectively alongside colleagues within the team and across the service in delivering complex and cross cutting work.
This role is office based with home working where appropriate. You will be able to work flexibly, from home or remotely some of the time, and across Manchester and Bolton Council sites or offices in support of colleagues and clients.
