Kingston and Sutton Councils have already undergone significant digital and technological transformation, allowing us to start to revolutionise the way we deliver key services. We look to our Project Managers to drive these crucial changes, ensuring that any project is carefully planned and implemented successfully from concept to completion.
We have an exciting opportunity for a seasoned Senior Project Manager and a talented Project Manager to play a key role in driving genuine transformation throughout the councils. You’ll lead on a range of digital projects, ensuring that they are effectively delivered to deadline and budget.
As an experienced Project Manager, you’ll take responsibility for all deliverables involved in any project. You’ll be a visible presence throughout all projects under your remit, regularly communicating with all involved and ensuring that deadlines and milestones are met.
The Senior Project Manager role will attract management responsibility for members of the team, and will support the Programme Manager. The Project Manager role may involve direct management responsibility for a Project Support Officer. Both will look to play a leading role in the project team. As senior members of the team, you’ll both inspire and act as a role model for more junior members.
These roles require experienced and tenacious individuals, capable of influencing and motivating others to ensure that all projects are carried out successfully. We’re looking for those who really understand processes and will look to identify opportunities for further efficiencies, wherever possible.
You’ll have all the natural attributes of a great project manager – great organisational skills, keen attention to detail and outstanding communication skills. It’s crucial that you’re able to understand the bigger picture when it comes to wider business and corporate need. This should give you what you need to be an effective champion of change and inspire others to follow suit.
Perhaps most importantly, it will be your confidence and experience that will be most integral to your success in this role. You’ll need to command respect and influence others in order to ensure that each and every project is carried out to the highest possible standard.
Kingston and Sutton Councils take a huge amount of pride in the services we provide. We’re committed to delivering great public services that are not only highly effective but also easily accessible. We’ve championed the digitisation of services as well as adopting a ‘mobile first’ model to ensure that this commitment is fulfilled.
Those joining us will find a friendly and collaborative workplace where they are fully supported, both in their work and their future development. We offer a range of training opportunities as well as enabling a range of flexible working arrangements to ensure that you’re always connected to your colleagues.
We believe that all this, combined with a fantastic benefits package, makes Kingston and Sutton Councils the perfect place to further your career.
