Birmingham City Council is transforming. As the biggest local authority in Europe, our 12,000 staff look after over 1.1m citizens and more than 40,000 businesses - striving to offer the best services we can to improve peoples' lives. We aspire to be the most rapidly improving city and to make Birmingham:
- an entrepreneurial city to learn, work and invest in
- an aspirational city to grow up in
- a fulfilling city to age well in
- a great city to live in.
The Information, Technology and Digital service will be at the heart of achieving these goals. Our service has been formed from an in-sourcing of the ICT service from the private sector - and we have high and genuine aspirations to 'lead, shape and deliver great digital solutions enabling a positive difference to peoples' lives' - so much so that we have adopted that mantra as the vision for our service. We have also developed a set of guiding principles that underpin how we work. Top of the list is:
- Put users first
- Turn data into insight
- Operate at pace
- Iterate and experiment
This is an exciting role in leading and supporting the IT&Digital service to become an agile digital delivery organisation – supporting the move to DDAT roles; introducing agile delivery methods and tools; and creating the mechanisms for managing work into and through the agile delivery lifecycle.
In addition to managing this ambitious transition, the PMO Manager will be required to lead and develop the existing PMO, project managers and the wider organisation through the transition to adopting agile delivery.
The PMO Manager will develop and implement best practices to enable the successful delivery of a broad range of IT and business change projects to stakeholders across the business.
Operationally, the PMO manager provides and enables project prioritisation, management information, financial reporting, resource planning, decision making, and recruitment.
Interviews for this post will take place virtually via video conferencing. Shortlisted candidates will be provided with further information.
