We have a challenging positon for an experienced Digital Delivery Manager to join a professional vocational College. As a 1-year, Fixed Term Contract with probable extension, this role will entitle you to their standard permanent employee benefits. |
Our client is about to embark upon a major Digital Transformation Programme and requires someone with a strong project background to ensure that time, quality and financial milestones are all met. As with many larger organisations, change finds its supporters and its points of resistance. You will need to be a persuader, a motivator and a manager to ensure success. In addition, as with a typical PMO, you will have to standardise the project's approach and ensure individual cooperation with it.
I am therefore looking for a strong person, who is adaptable and comes with the gravitas to lead and mentor people at all levels. If you are the right Digital Delivery Manager, you'll be experienced with guiding and progressing numerous projects simultaneously and you'll know how to seize direct control as Project Manager when required.
In a nutshell, our client is changing everything. Of course, this is going to take several years and will be an ongoing programme. This role is initially for 1 year, but it is highly likely that this will be extended.
The organisation is spread across a 10-15 different locations in the UK to enable people to have access to a variety of different systems and applications to support the work of the college staff and to support the learning of college members. There are many major projects planned including changes to the main IT Systems, a new Website, and new educational supporting materials which are to be made assessable across multiple channels. In finding the right person for this role, we are not looking for a technical systems expert.
Excitingly, they have just partnered with one of the world's leading Digital Agencies to help them to bring about the transformation they are looking for.
The Head Office, where you would predominantly be working; is based in Kings Cross. They have other sites in Scotland, Wales and the rest of England with some smaller satellite offices around the UK. As a point of interest, some tiny offices house only 2 or 3 people, but all need to be considered in this transformation programme.
The successful applicant must have come from another large multi- site organisation where they have had the experience of working on complex projects.
You will report directly to the Assistant Director of IT / Digital and will work closely with the Head of IT Delivery. You'll work alongside other members of the Digital Delivery Team and the wider IT department in support of the larger organisation.
The team is hardworking and adaptable and you'll find that colleagues are happy to support all stages of the project including any PMO duties.
The Digital Delivery Manager will play an intrinsic part in shaping the future of this organisation, so needs an experienced, robust person who can liaise at all levels across the organisation; not just other members of the Digital Delivery Office.
For each project, teams will comprise members of the IT Department and others from across the College. There will be lots of interaction with Senior Users in addition to College Officers and Trustee Board members.
Travel will be required, sometimes at short notice to other sites across the UK
This organisation delivers essential services and, as such, those need to continue without loss of operation throughout the lifetime of the programme.
The new systems will deliver faster, quicker methods of working across all devices. Above all they are looking to maintain and improve quality standards to ensure that end users and ultimately the all customers experience a higher quality of service.
