Project and Improvement Lead (ICT)

We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual to manage a stream of projects across the organisation, working with individual services to ensure that development and improvement projects are implemented effectively. This is a truly exciting time to join South Yorkshire Pensions Authority as we move into a new phase of innovation and an ambitious agenda of continuous improvements to enhance the services we provide to our customers.

We are a growing public sector organisation with a team of around 100 staff who run the workplace pension scheme on behalf of a large number of employing organisations, including Local Authorities and other public bodies, educational institutions and a number of charitable organisations.

You will play a key role in business process re-design and will act as a ‘process owner’ in analysing and delivering process improvements for various services. You will be instrumental in ensuring that the organisation meets its commitments to continuous improvement across a range of business services.

Educated to degree level or equivalent, (or have significant vocational experience showing development in a series of progressively more demanding relevant roles), you will also have significant experience of leading and managing ICT system implementation and software development projects and a detailed knowledge and understanding of various project management methodologies, including a project management qualification.

From flexible working to job sharing (where possible) we are committed to providing a healthy work life balance. You will benefit from 26 days annual leave, rising to a maximum of 35 days after 10 years’ service, as well as the opportunity to join the generous local government salary related pension scheme.
