About IT Services

IT Services at the University of Manchester is a vibrant and fast-moving department, we focus on delivering excellent customer service and quality services for our staff, students and researchers. 

The Role

IT Services is looking for an experienced IT project or programme manager to join us as an ITS Programme Delivery Lead. Working with colleagues in ITS services, the University’s Strategic Change Office and stakeholders across the institution, you will own and ensure delivery of agreed IT outcomes for strategic programmes and projects, owning the technology roadmaps and plans and overseeing matrix teams to manage implementation and transition into live service.

You’ll oversee provision of IT staff and technical resources (including external third parties) for programmes and projects, ensuring they are costed, capable and available. You’ll assure the quality of IT deliverables, identifying and resolving risks, issues and dependencies as they arise.

As an expert in IT change, you’ll own and continuously improve the systems development lifecycle and standards and make sure these are applied and embedded within programmes. You’ll also own the relationships between IT Services and the programme and project stakeholders, acting as a primary point of contact for senior stakeholders, the Strategic Change Office and operational business partners. You’ll use excellent communication skills to clarify and simplify technical issues to aid understanding and consensus.

The Person

The successful candidate should be able to demonstrate:

  • Extensive experience of successfully managing IT projects and programmes using agile and waterfall methodologies
  • Significant experience of leading and directing the work of teams and direct and matrix reports, setting and managing clear and challenging performance goals
  • Expertise in the identification, assessment and management of project risks and interdependencies, which could result in time or cost over-runs, or failure to deliver products which are fit for purpose
  • The ability to work confidently and assertively with a range of executive and non-executive senior stakeholders, using coaching, negotiating, communication and influencing skills to achieve successful outcomes
  • Technically current, with an up-to-date understanding of technology trends and directions across the industry
