The Opportunity

Do you want to help deliver an ambitious transformation at the heart of democracy?

Do you enjoy spotting problems and working with a team to solve them?

The Transforming Digital Programme is looking to appoint two Delivery Managers to support the delivery of its ambitious programme of work. You will support a wide variety of activities within the Programme. There is a significant amount to deliver, and we are looking for people with the core skills required to get things done in the right way.  At the heart of the delivery manager role is excellent organisation, communication and collaboration skills.  A track record of managing your own work, and that of others, under pressure is essential.

The Delivery Manager will be responsible for

  • planning and management of key programme deliverables and objectives.
  • working closely with the Programme team and colleagues across Parliament, ensuring that delivery is managed in a consistent manner.

What You Need

We’re looking for someone who can:

  • create great agile working environments;
  • identify the appropriate people and resources for the team;
  • make sure teams understand their mission, vision and goals, and that these align across the Programme;
  • communicate and visualise progress towards these goals;
  • manage and address risks, issues and dependencies;
  • engage with key stakeholders on delivery progress and challenges;
  • continually improve delivery methods and approaches to team working; and
  • encourage the team to be self-organising.

Candidates will need the ability to pass security clearance, backed by the right to work in the UK

About The Team

The Transforming Digital Programme is a Parliament-wide programme that will fundamentally change the way Parliament works with digital, enabling Parliament to:

  • Meet rising customer needs of Members, Members’ staff and House staff for better digital services; and
  • Keep pace with digital developments and advances in technology.

To achieve this, Transforming Digital will overhaul Parliament’s existing digital processes, operating model and capability, in a series of delivery tranches from October 2021 up to 2025. Without doing this, the gap between expectation and reality will grow wider, and Parliament’s year-on-year cost of digital services will increase..

About Us

This is why we are at the start of a huge transformation programme powered by technology. The Parliamentary Digital Service (PDS) works with the Houses of Commons and the House of Lords with all their IT and digital needs.
