Salary Range: £39,739 - £47,626 (Management Band 1 - SEO)
*Please note recruitment will normally be at the minimum of the band*
Purpose of the Post:
As a Senior Project Manager within the Programme and Change Office, you will develop and manage several diverse projects within a challenging and dynamic environment. This role provides an excellent opportunity for you to make a significant impact on the organisation, helping to implement changes which improve services for Assembly Members, their staff and colleagues in the Assembly Commission.
You will be responsible for defining, scoping, planning and the day-to-day running of projects, and for reporting on progress, budget and risks and issues to boards and senior staff. The types of projects you will manage will vary, including implementing new IT systems, wider business change that contribute to the delivery of the organisation's strategic goals.
You will manage the administration of each project, ensuring we meet our governance obligations by keeping up-to-date, accurate documentation, and monitoring risks, issues and budgets. You'll ensure that projects have the right people working on them at the right time through effective resource planning, and will develop and manage good relationships with colleagues and external partners throughout each project's lifecycle.
Reporting to the Head of the ICT Programme, you will work closely with colleagues in the Programme and Change Office, including the Head of Change Management, project managers, programme co-ordinators and business analysts. You will also work closely with Assembly Members and their staff, suppliers and contractors.
Our Official Languages (Welsh and English)
We are fully committed to continuously enhancing and improving our exemplary bilingual services and to being a truly bilingual organisation so that Assembly Members, the public and staff can choose to work or communicate naturally in either or both of our official languages, with the use of both languages proactively encouraged and facilitated.
Though we do not require all our staff to be fluent in both our official languages, our expectation is that they are all committed to the delivery of services in both our official languages. To that extent, we expect all Assembly appointees to have, or to acquire during an agreed period, courtesy-level skills in Welsh. All posts are assessed in the context of the service area's ability to deliver bilingual services to our customers and some posts, therefore, require a higher level of Welsh to facilitate that. Such requirements are expressed below in the Job Description.
For further information on the Welsh language levels, please visit our Official Language Scheme page.
Pattern of Working:
This is a full-time post although flexible working arrangements will be considered, subject to meeting the needs of the Assembly and its Members.
