Forecasting work

We are committed to meeting the needs of areas and to releasing funding when local people need it. Our current model is built on cohorts of areas, grouped on the basis of how much funding they have left to spend, and the end date of their Big Local plan. As we reach the half-way point of the programme, we are reviewing our forecasting model to ensure that it:

  • • Reflects the changing needs of Big Local areas as they progress through the main delivery phase to the end of the programme
  • • Is based on typologies of spending behaviour and takes into account insights we have gained through our research and programme delivery experience
  • • Supports effective budget planning and risk management.

Support we need

Local Trust delivers the programme through a relatively small and busy team, and we are seeking to commission a partner who can support us to develop our new forecasting model.

Your work will involve analysing our needs, recommending relevant forecasting techniques and working closely with our funding and finance teams, supporting us to use the techniques and develop the new model.

To apply

Please send a brief expression of interest and your CV to by 5pm Friday 25 October 2019.

We will review expressions on a rolling basis during October and will contact strong respondents before the deadline.
