More about the role

Central Bedfordshire Council has a leading Information Technology service, with a forward-thinking approach that supports a modern and efficient local authority.  We know that the right technology and support can transform services, improve outcomes for our residents, and boost the performance and productivity of our staff.

We currently have fixed term vacancies for two Project Managers to lead on a major transformation initiative. 

The roles will support the delivery of the Futures Programme, a cross-council programme of work which will deliver savings and improve the way we work. The Futures Programme is aligned to our Medium Term Financial Plan and sees us taking a one-council approach to problem solving. The success of the programme relies upon solid project management and engagement with the workforce and our approach to the management of change is key.

You’ll be working alongside our IT team to deliver these ambitious programmes of work, adding your project management expertise to gather requirements, plan and schedule the project phases, deliver meaningful progress reports and stakeholder engagement.  You will also be at ease with managing a diverse range of stakeholders that includes third parties and suppliers.

The successful candidates will be responsible for supporting and delivering these key corporate projects, ensuring the technology is implemented and embedded successfully. 

These roles are being offered on a fixed term basis. If you feel you have the skills and tenacity to drive through these exciting changes successfully and if you have experience of large-scale technology implementation projects where you’ve delivered high quality results on time and to budget, we’d love to hear from you.

The Council is engaged on an increasingly transformational approach to service provision and IT is critical to the success of this as we drive a digital first agenda to ensure staff are engaged in activity that adds the greatest value. Working within the IT team and alongside partners, each project manager will successfully implement the new way of working that supports the council to deliver its ongoing transformation agenda.

Central Bedfordshire Council has its own vision and values that are integral to everything we do. Our area vision is to make Central Bedfordshire 'A great place to live and work’.
