Great Britain's gambling industry is in a constant state of change, fuelled by shifting consumer behaviour and the rapid growth of technology. Itâs high profile politically too, and the legislation controlling gambling is constantly under scrutiny. Within this uniquely challenging and evolving environment, The Gambling Commission's role is to ensure that gambling is crime free, fair and open - and that children and vulnerable people are protected. Now they need you to play a key role in their future, driving the change needed to ensure that the Gambling Commission can meet the growing complexity of the market and their developing regulatory remit.
The Gambling Commission are now looking for a Project Lead to play a key role in the design and delivery of the National Lottery Licence Competition.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a project professional from a policy and regulatory background to advance their career and play a vital role in the licensing for the National Lottery with a leading regulatory body.
As a Project Lead, you will provide the basis for the fourth licence competition to run the National Lottery. As the current licence expires in 2023, the Gambling Commission is gearing up to hold a competition to generate the next licence holder.
The purpose of the competition is to ensure that the lottery raises as much money for charitable causes as possible, protects consumers and is promoted with all due propriety.
Your role will involve contacting all the elements of the project and creating outputs from this varied work programme. Specifically, you will work with the Programme Director, plan and deliver a broad programme of work, take the lead on policy development and draw on emerging evidence to forge key themes into deliverables.
Engaging with stakeholders, you will build networks and liaise with parties across the commission to forecast need and allocate resources.
Interested? If so, you will need:
- Experience in a policy and regulatory environment developing new approaches
- Experience of developing, maintaining and making best use of effective stakeholder relationships, both internally and externally
- Wide experience of utilising different disciplines for commercial gain
- Procurement and contractor management experience
Analytical and flexible, as a Project Lead, you will need proven written and verbal communication skills, the ability to forge relationships and people management capabilities.
The closing date for this role is the 12th April 2018.
