Job Description

A great opportunity for a talented Project Management Office (PMO) Leader to join us at a fundamental time in our transformation programme.

We are a strong and successful organisation, with over 50 years of expertise, that’s in great shape, enjoying a widespread reputation for constantly innovating and pushing back the boundaries to ensure we deliver on our social purpose.

We're looking to build on this success and grow the business by creating a platform to challenge and simplify existing operations for the benefit of customers and staff alike, whilst removing any barriers there are to making their services even better…and this is just the beginning.

The role

We are looking for a PMO lead with proven experience of operating within a large business transformation programme to join us on a 12 month fixed term contract covering maternity leave.

You will play a lead role in this exciting journey of business transformation and apply your expertise to help ensure ‘best practise’ is a mantra that’s firmly embedded as a way of life. You will work across the full transformation programme and your role will involve:

  • Managing the PMO team, to ensure colleagues thrive in their roles and support our service areas and work streams to meet the programme’s milestones
  • Ensuring programme information is reported and escalated so risks and issues that could potentially impact on programme delivery are known
  • Developing and produce a wide range of reports that articulate programme status, performance and delivery against pre-defined plans and lessons learnt
  • Managing dependencies between work streams and projects across the programme, ensuring each dependencies is logged and monitored
  • Responsibility for ensuring programme governance compliance
  • Working alongside senior colleagues to plan the next stage of programme, ensuring the expected deliverables are clear and approved by the programme board
  • Managing, coordinating and tracking the programme’s budget and ensuring budget holders have visibility to their spend

The person

As an accomplished PMO Lead you must have:

  • Substantial project office experience gained within a large scale transformation programme, supported by excellent planning, priority setting and reporting skills
  • Strong communication and stakeholder management skills, with the ability to influence colleagues within both the programme and wider business
  • A real drive for results and the ability to work in a fast-paced and ever-changing environment
  • Team leadership experience with a focus on people development
  • Play an active role in programme governance at all levels

In return, you can look forward to gaining experience in what we believe is a fantastic business, able to offer the type of scope and exposure that very few transformation programmes can match.

Closing date for applications 29th July.
