Help us innovate to keep the country safe
The country faces a security threat that’s unlike any we’ve faced before. To protect the public, we’re constantly developing new technology for our Counter Terrorism (CT) teams. As a Project Manager within our CT Policing Operational Delivery Intelligent Client Unit Portfolio, you’ll turn smart ideas into cutting-edge solutions that could give us a critical edge.
Our Client Unit delivers ICT projects for a number of partners including other forces. Alongside stakeholders, suppliers and our experts, you’ll deliver a growing pipeline of new products and demands, managing each project through its lifecycle through to operational service. It means keeping progress on track and watching out for risks and issues. You’ll also manage finance and forecasting for the lifetime of each project. There’ll be a wide range of stakeholders within and outside the Met, so it’s important to keep communication flowing and see that everyone’s informed.
You’ll be working in a secure domain on projects of national importance. So you must be prepared to undergo security vetting (if you haven’t obtained clearance already). You’ll also need in-depth, practical knowledge of delivering complex national ICT projects. We’ll expect you to manage risks, issues and dependencies, as well as stakeholders and budgets. Up to speed on government procurement processes and document management systems, you’ll bring an organised approach and ideally a project management qualification. This is a key role for a motivated and proactive professional. Join us, and we’ll help you build your expertise with expert training.

Vetting and STRAP
This post will require you to hold National Security Vetting (NSV) at either Security Check (SC).
The post requires access to the most sensitive intelligence material on a daily basis. Applicants must hold or be prepared to undergo Security Check (SC) before taking up the post. Additionally, this material is of particular sensitivity to the UK and its distribution must be restricted to UK nationals. In approved circumstances dual nationals (of which one element is British) may also be granted access. However, in the event that potential conflicts of interest cannot be managed the post holder will not be able to see the intelligence material and will not be able to perform their duties. For the purpose of safeguarding national security and in line with Cabinet Office Policy, supported by Section 82(2) to (4) of the Police Reform Act (2002), applicants who do not hold or acquire Security Check (SC) clearance and meet the nationality requirements cannot be offered the post.
We view diversity as fundamental to our success. To tackle today’s complex policing challenges, we need a workforce made up from all of London’s communities. Applications from across the community are therefore essential
