A fantastic opportunity to join an ambitious and transforming Council. The right career move is often about timing, and this is certainly an exciting time to join South Derbyshire District Council.
Our Council is starting the second year of a transformational journey that will underpin service delivery for the present and the next generation. A new Corporate Plan 2020-2024 with a focus on Our Environment, Our People and Our Future has been introduced and the delivery of these objectives will depend on a first-class customer experience, a connected digital platform, and a continuous improvement in processes. That’s where you come in.
In order to achieve our ambitions, we need an ambitious programme manager to lead a three year modernisation programme for Housing Services. You will need a good knowledge of how Housing Services are delivered in a Local Authority, or similar environment, and experience of project delivery. The blend of the two disciplines will be crucial for success as the role will be the key translator between the needs of the services and what is technically possible.
The core work in the programme is the implantation of a new SaaS Housing Management Solution, the delivery of agile and mobile working, the implementation of a new combined solution for Choice Based Letting and Homelessness and the delivery of an asset management solution.
You’ll be working in a structured PMO environment with regular Board level updates however, the role will be varied in its duties and very diverse. The programme is high profile in the organisation and will provide the candidate a great opportunity for a wide audience of officers, leaders, customers tenants and partners.
You will be supported by engaged and dedicated colleagues who are up for the challenge and raring to go. This role will see you make a direct impact to our customers and tenants and deliver substantial improvements at Council and District level.
