Project Manager

The starting salary for this year is £36,282 per annum for working 36 hours per week.

Are you looking for an opportunity to build on your IT project management career?

Surrey County Council’s IT & Digital Project Delivery Team has a vacancy for an IT Project Manager. As an experienced project manager, you will deliver a number of concurrent IT projects for business solutions to support major IT-related change initiatives across the Authority. These will be delivered through the use of internal staff, contractors and third-party suppliers.

The Project Delivery Team is part of the Architecture, Transition and PPM group responsible for delivering major IT-business solutions across all services of the Authority and a number of external partners. The team is comprised of Programme Managers, Senior Project Managers and Project Managers.  

Our project managers are at the centre of a major transformation programme to deliver IT solutions that make the Authority’s staff more mobile, flexible and responsive, providing them with ability to work in partnership with colleagues, other public bodies, agencies and residents using a variety of IT devices, tools and applications. 

Working with Heads of Services, Business Partners and other key stakeholders, you will develop and agree projects briefs, PIDs, and project and resource plans, and be responsible for the day-to-day management of projects. You will ensure completion to agreed cost, time and quality criteria. This will often involve working and negotiating with external suppliers, as well as management of a virtual project team.

You must be an experienced PRINCE 2 project manager. As a recognised expert in the theory and practice of project management you will develop good project management expertise in others and enhance project management processes in the organisation.

You will manage virtual project teams and will therefore have good communication, engagement and organisation skills together with credibility in the role. 

The post requires strong influencing skills and the ability to bring together project sponsors (usually senior managers), expert advisers, external consultants, contractors and end users to form an effective team focussed on delivery of the projects.

Surrey County Council and East Sussex County Council collaborate on a number of business services and therefore the successful post-holder needs to be flexible in terms of working locations across the two counties as project demands arise.

At Surrey, our values and behaviours are just as important as our skills and abilities. They shape who we are as an organisation. Find out more about the values we follow.
