Job description

DWP. Digital with Purpose.

DWP are looking for Digital Project Manager to work with us on in a once-in-a-generation digital transformation. Our people work on projects that are revolutionising products and services that are used by millions of people every day.

We know that better digital services in government will mean better public services. Using fresh ideas and leading edge technologies – and putting the user at the centre of everything we do – we create innovative digital solutions that make a difference to the lives of our 22 million users.

Delivery. Work. Projects.

About you and your role:

You know what being a Digital Project Manager looks and feels like. You just might not have done it at this scale, with such potential to touch millions of lives, where the user – and not a profit motive – is really at the heart of everything you work on.

You will ensure your project is commercially viable and will deliver value. You will also manage stakeholders, maintaining the pace of delivery. You’ll work across stakeholder groups, inside and outside DWP fostering collaboration, tailoring your communication method and style to your audience.

We want people who can manage projects end-to-end, ensuring delivery to agreed parameters of quality, time and cost and to manage plans, risks, issues and dependencies through to resolution.

We’re also looking for people who can coach and mentor associates and identify improvements in ways of working.

What skills, knowledge and experience are we looking for?
