My local authority client based in the North West is looking for a Digital ICT Project Manager who can successfully hit the ground running.
The Information Assurance and Data Management (IADM) programme has a requirement for a project management resource to support the delivery of Digitisation, Information Assurance, GDPR and Data Management projects.
The programme is tasked with supporting and embedding organisational compliance for information / data privacy rights, security, data management etc. and so has a number of medium / large projects commissioned to achieve objectives.

Projects include technologies such as SharePoint, Electronic Document Management Systems, Scanning (digitisation) of records as well as business and process focussed projects such as Strategy implementations, process improvements for GDPR compliance and supporting the wider programme business change plan.
The project manager must be able to work to timescales and have the initiative to run with projects whilst ensuring the correct levels of governance are in place and maintained. The PM will be supported by the programme manager and a wider team which works very closely together.
