On behalf of the Government Project Delivery Profession, we are recruiting for Project Managers.
As a Project Manager in government, you will have a unique chance to change the nation and people’s lives for the better. You will be part of a growing community of project delivery professionals working on a range of big, difficult and complex projects and programmes across government.
Right now we are recruiting across two Government departments. Our professionals in the Ministry of Justice work on a once-in-a-generation transformation project across the entire HM Courts and Tribunals Service, enhancing the provision of a world-class justice system, as well as delivering a modern prison estate that supports the successful rehabilitation of the prison population.
Project delivery professionals in the Home Office are delivering significant transformation between now and 2020, and beyond, to keep our citizens safe and our country secure. With new technology and the fast-evolving nature of the threats we face mean we must adapt fast to achieve this.
As a Project Manager in Government you will play a key role in delivering projects of different scale and complexity with some degree of uncertainty in support of departmental priorities. You will be adept at managing risks, multiple stakeholders, your team and the project itself. From project controls to business transformation, you’ll bring all your expertise into play so that each project delivers the right outcomes.
To work on some of the most fascinating initiatives in government, you will need to have delivered or been involved in the delivery of projects within agreed time, cost and quality constraints. You will be able to demonstrate a sound understanding of project management tools and methodologies and experience of applying them in practice. In addition, you will be confident and experienced in developing stakeholder relationships and in managing project risks.
Besides the opportunity to deliver some of the most vital projects in the country, you can look forward to an excellent pension, flexible working arrangements, career development opportunities across the Civil Service and the chance to be part of a world-class project delivery profession.
Closing date: Wednesday 26th April 2017.
