6m Contract | Sutton - Hybrid | £300 - 400pd Inside IR35
We are looking for a Digital Project Manager who, through excellent orchestration of agile and lean practices, will uncover and unblock issues that hinder delivery, and deliver activities to maintain
team morale. Ensuring each discipline is working towards their own professional standards,
they will thus ensure the quality of the product or service delivered.
The mantra here in Digital is people first, technology second. When building good services,
we start with user needs. Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, the Delivery Manager
will be accountable for the delivery of products and services, and for managing risk and
dependencies between projects and teams. Their focus is the team, protecting them from
influences that may hinder delivery, and helping each discipline work together and produce
continuous value to our users.
Digital and IT Behaviours
We want to encourage behaviours that support the values of our Councils:
- Within teams and across the broader Digital and IT department, we'll be expecting more senior team members to play an active part in developing, mentoring, and buddying the less senior members of the team, even if they do not have direct line management responsibility for them. This way, we aim to build a high-performing and flexible team that supports one another and can deliver both ongoing service and transformational change for Digital and IT customers and communities.
- All team members have the opportunity to develop and display leadership qualities by taking ownership of the work they do and being committed and present in their interactions with other team members and with our customers.
- We expect every member of staff to invest in their own personal development and breadth of experience and capability. This is not achieved purely through formal training courses but also by getting involved, being inquisitive, challenging yourself and seeking out other opportunities to learn and to stay up to date with technology and business direction
- We have the responsibility of digitally enabling our Councils and communities - so every team member should be an ambassador for our solutions and technologies, whether or not they are in a technical role. We need to set an example by using our digital capabilities and facilities in full and with our customers so that they are inspired by what technology could do for them.
- Takes responsibility for the definition, documentation, and safe execution of small, medium and large-scale projects, actively participating in all phases of the project.
- Identifies, assesses and manages risks to the success of the project.
- Effectively estimates costs, timescales and resource requirements for the successful delivery of the project(s) to agreed terms of reference.
