As Digital Project Manager, you'll build and manage stakeholder relationships across our internal teams and suppliers, proactively identifying and managing risks and issues.

You're a consistent and influential communicator. You know how to communicate across internal and external stakeholders and how to manage team dynamics.

In this role you'll have ownership of one of our digital projects, or part of one of our large-scale programmes. That means you manage all the plans, risks, issues, and dependencies.

You'll be empowered to build your skills and experience through whatever learning and development works best for you. This will include growing your expertise in project management practice, digital frameworks and technologies.

As well as your project team, you will have chance to coach and mentor other members of our project community. You'll help us encourage collaboration and shared ownership throughout the team, and grow capability in our thriving community of practice.

  • Can demonstrate effective project controls to demonstrate the health of the projects they are responsible for and react accordingly to the information gathered.
  • Experience of building and managing effective stakeholder relationships to shape the outcomes of a project, considering different individual needs, views, and ideas.
  • Experience of building team dynamics and identifying ways to improve the way the team is working.
  • Communicate in a straightforward, honest, and engaging manner, choosing appropriate styles and tools to maximise and check understanding and impact.

Details. Wages. Perks.

You'll join us in our brilliant digital hubs in Birmingham, Blackpool, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle or Sheffield.

We also have all the tools and tech we need to enable our people to work flexibly. We work a hybrid model with a mix of home working and sometime in the office.

In return for your skills, we offer competitive pay of up to £43,347.

You'll be eligible for a brilliant civil service pension with employer contributions of 28.9%.

You'll get a generous leave package starting at 26 days, rising to 30 days, plus all the usual bank holidays, and the option to take extra days off on flexi leave.
