We're seeking several Social Value Officers to join the team at Clarion Futures. You'll be working flexibly between home and our modern London office.

At Clarion Futures we have a vision to improve the lives of our residents and communities, this role will be pivotal in ensuring the supply chain partners we work with share that vision and deliver life changing social value. This role will help secure cash and in-kind commitments from our supply chain and build strong relationships to ensure quality social value is delivered aligned with Clarion Futures and its stakeholders' priorities.

With the launch of Clarion's sustainability strategy, this is a great time to join Clarion to make a difference. This role combines community investment work with corporate facing responsibilities, a great development role for someone looking to progress in this industry.

We'll look to you to help embed a social value strategy across Clarion that covers aims, targets and guidance for all staff when procuring new contracts. You'll support the Social Value Manager with securing, monitoring and coordinating social value from partner contractors to improve the lives of customers and local residents.

Other key responsibilities will include:-

  • Work with the Social Value Manager to build strong relationships with both internal and external stakeholders to ensure a consistent approach and representation that maximises the social value achieved through major procurement exercises.
  • Work with Clarion Futures and Housing colleagues to identify annual social value priorities, ensuring they link to contractor's capabilities and ensuring residents and communities benefit.
  • Coordinating, monitoring and reporting on social value delivery.

We're looking for enthusiastic individuals with experience in community investment delivery and partnerships. Knowledge of social value from contractors and setting up frameworks to monitor delivery is preferred but not essential - but a good eye for detail and ability to learn is key. You'll have the confidence to negotiate with contractors to ensure they offer appropriate and meaningful social value and deliver on commitments. Excellent communication, organisational and stakeholder engagement skills are also essential for the role.

If this sounds like an opportunity for you, we look forward to hearing from you.

Closing Date: Sunday 21st April 2024 at midnight.
