The role holders will have the opportunity to work with a wide variety of audiences (both internally and externally) to support best practice around coproduction  to the benefit of service users and staff. The role holders will be able to do this in a variety of ways, such as by:

  • Providing training and guidance to teams on coproduction and people participation developments as part of your work programme.

  • Maintaining and growing our networks of people that use our services, volunteers, and partners in line with the needs of the programme.
This is an evolving role, and it is expected there will be elements of research and project work, to enable the development of evidenced based practice. 

If you have any queries about the role, please contact Nathan Hayes (Policy & Strategy Officer, Adult Social Care), via [email protected] for an informal conversation.

About Us

We’re the local government authority for Manchester, and have teams across the city helping to make this a great place to live for everyone. We’re proud to do local government differently, in a city with an international reputation for diversity, creativity, culture and passion.
