We’re looking for talented Business Performance & Planning Managers with a drive and passion for Digital to join our growing community of experts and become a key part of one of the biggest and high profile digital transformation programmes in the world.

You will be joining an exciting, motivated and forward thinking team implementing radical improvements, while promoting Digital working and its benefits and delivering products and services that are used by 22 million people in the UK, including friends, family, neighbours and some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

If you are looking for a Business Management role that differs from the norm, where you will use your skills to help real people, you will struggle to find a bigger, more challenging and rewarding opportunity anywhere in the UK.

You will manage the design and implementation of an audit management framework to ensure consistent ways of working across digital groups.

And you will be able to transfer all of your knowledge and skills and adapt them to a digital environment, understanding the background and what our challenges are likely to be.

• You have experience of working in a large digital organisation, or demonstrable understanding of how large digital organisations operate in the context of this role.
