ICT Infrastructure Project Manager

Type: Permanent Location: Oxford, Oxfordshire

The role

Are you looking for a fresh challenge? The role of ICT Infrastructure Project Manager represents an exciting opportunity to help deliver the transformation of Oxford City Council's ICT infrastructure and technical services alongside our challenging digital transformation programme to provide the best user experience for both internal and external customers.

Your primary focus will be on bringing your project management skills (both PRINCE2 and AgilePM) to Oxford City Council's ICT work programme to ensure the successful implementation of ICT infrastructure and technical services projects.

The role encompasses all aspects of project execution from developing the initial business case through to testing, implementation and benefits realisation. Operating as a change agent delivering transformation projects that may require a cultural shift as well as the introduction of new technologies, you will gain 'buy in' from stakeholders as well as keeping the project team on track. In addition, you'll have both a highly organised approach and the ability to enthuse and motivate the project team within a matrix management working environment to deliver projects on budget and on time.

If you have a broad knowledge of ICT infrastructure technologies and associated services, take pride in providing excellent customer service along with the passion and drive for developing and delivering innovative technology projects to the highest standards, we would like to hear from you.
