There has never been a more important time to join the fight for our planet and this is an incredible opportunity for a senior level strategic planner to play a key role supporting the achievement of an ambitious new strategy to ensure a future where people and nature thrive.
This is an exciting time to join the world’s leading independent conservation organisation as we are working to make sure we have effective business systems and processes to deliver our new 3 year strategy and long term impact. As Head of Strategic Planning & Performance, you will lead the process to embed our new strategy and operating model, including the associated culture shift, to ensure strong focus on delivery of our strategy.
We will look to you to play a key part over the next year to build on and improve the effectiveness of the organisation at delivering our strategy, including programme and project management best practice. You will embed and improve robust project, programme and performance management to monitor and evaluate impact and the achievement against goals, as well as generating insights to improve future organisational performance. You will oversee the tracking of organisational plans and progress reporting, including risk management and the identification of barriers to the delivery of the strategy, ensuring effective actions are in place to mitigate.
Comfortable working alongside senior level stakeholders you must have experience of leading strategic planning across an organisation and reporting to senior stakeholders. This will have included bringing teams and departments together to plan and deliver effectively against shared goals.
Able to blend big picture strategic thinking with robust organisational delivery and simple process design, you will have an in-depth understanding of organisation development and cultural change. You will be effective at stakeholder management and leading matrix teams too.
