About The Role

Due to significant growth we are recruiting for a Contracts Manager across Lanarkshire and the West.

Your role, as an ENABLE Works Contract Manager, will be to manage the delivery, performance and compliance of multiple contracts across your region.

You will be responsible for all contract management and delivery of outcomes and income across the programmes in your region; key to this will be developing positive professional relationships with our delivery teams and stakeholders in each area.

You will be responsible for all programme monitoring, ensuring accurate tracking of all performance. You will be required to provide this, in line with funder expectations, to your regional Operations Manager and will be required to attend and contribute to regular leadership meetings.

You will work closely with our delivery teams and will be responsible for driving performance and compliance in-line with contractual targets. You will ensure a positive experience of our provision for both our clients and stakeholders.

You will motivate and monitor performance and ensure we deliver a quality service across the programme whilst meeting challenging project KDIs.

You will work to accurately forecast delivery outcomes, drive performance within teams, and identify and effectively manage any risks to performance to ensure targets are achieved.

Analytical skills, attention to detail and a keen understanding of your regions challenging compliance requirements, are essential to be successful in this role.

Responsible for quality and compliance you will work closely with our Compliance team, overseeing internal audits, recognising trends, identifying risks areas and actioning effective contingencies.

You will be an important member of the wider ENABLE Works team, supporting departmental objectives through effective programme management, but also through positive collaboration and innovation within your team to support our strategic goals.

Please note this role involves the management of a geographical region, so significant travel to ensure effective management of a geographically disparate team will be required.
