The Parliamentary Digital Service (PDS) works with the House of Commons, the House of Lords, and Parliament staff on their IT and digital needs.
At the Parliamentary Digital Service, we're transforming the way Parliament does digital. We're responsible for the digital output of all parliamentary services. We think it's important that everyone can access and understand what's going on in Parliament. Our goal is to bring together the public, Parliament Members, and Parliamentary staff to inform, engage, support, and communicate through one, unified digital core - PDS.
The Programme Manager is a specialist role within the Digital Service, establishing, managing and a programme of digital transformation within the Digital Portfolio. They work closely with the programme SRO and the relevant Portfolio Manager, ensuring that the programme delivers the maximum possible value to Parliament.
They are also a key member of the Delivery & Customer Experience directorate, playing a significant role in leading the wider team and promoting and building greater capability and leaner, more effective practices.
Specifically, this role is dedicated to the Transforming Digital Programme, Data & Infrastructure stream, and requires someone with a technical delivery background including large scale data and infrastructure programmes (Azure) that have culminated in the delivery of data and infrastructure services.
The ability to manage senior business stakeholders must be balanced with having the technical credibility with senior technical leaders/SMEs where the ability to deliver life cycle roadmaps, service catalogues and cost models is key.
An ITIL background is required with accreditation a preference.
We're an open, transparent, collaborative team at the heart of Westminster, who work innovatively and flexibly to facilitate a work/life balance. We pride ourselves in building people's careers, investing in them and providing great opportunities for career progression.
