We’re recruiting

The Well-being of Future Generations Act gives us the ambition, permission and legal obligation to improve our social, cultural, environmental and economic well-being.

The Act is unique to Wales attracting interest from countries across the world as it offers a huge opportunity to make a long-lasting, positive change to current and future generations.

The Act requires public bodies in Wales to think about the long-term impact of their decisions, to work better with people, communities and each other, and to prevent persistent problems such as poverty, health inequalities and climate change.

Do you understand how the public sector works and are you willing to be part of the Team who are tasked with challenging it to bring about the change needed?

We’d love to find new talent for our Team, people who are as passionate as us about achieving change for the future.

Is this you?

  • Change Maker Support with a starting salary of £25,660 per annum for full time hours. This is a 1 year fixed term contract. You can find the role description here.

As a Change Maker Support, you will be someone with good knowledge of the Well-being of Future Generations Act and an understanding of what it is trying to achieve.

You will appreciate the need for change in the public sector and will be steadfast in your resolve to support the Commissioner’s approach of being practical, straight talking and constructively challenging.

You will be committed to being super connected with our partners and super engaged in our challenge of bringing the Act to life and securing the cultural change needed to do so.

You are naturally curious and enthusiastic about new ideas and new ways of working and you will be willing to find innovative solutions to problems and issues using your own initiative.

You will have an analytical mind-set, someone who enjoys desk-based research and who can turn theory into practical, communicable examples and make complex ideas easily understandable for different audiences.

You are someone who will understand how the public sector works but be willing to challenge it.

You will be honest and straightforward with people and able to generate trust and confidence with the people you work with and work for.

This is a team that values inclusive decision making and shared leadership.
