If you have experience in delivering successful small-to-medium-sized web/digital projects using Agile frameworks and coordinating the work of a multidisciplinary team, we’d love to hear from you.
As part of our Digital Team, reporting directly to the Head of Digital, you’ll be managing diverse projects on our public website, taking ownership of our project management processes and tools (including JIRA), and coordinating the project-focused efforts of a busy team that divides its time between operational and project work.
We leverage Agile/Scrum to deliver our projects, working in 3-week sprints using JIRA and meeting regularly for planning, backlog refinement and retrospective sessions.
While it’s essential that you have experience working with one or more Agile frameworks, it’s also important that you’re able and/or willing to experiment with and leverage other project management methodologies and tools, where appropriate, to help us deliver our work in the most efficient and effective way possible.
Our projects are signed off by a Web Governance Group that meets quarterly and comprises senior colleagues from around the University. You’ll join the Head of Digital at these meetings to understand project priorities, requirements, and key stakeholders involved. Projects typically span a few months to a year, and examples include new technical integrations with third-party or University systems, the creation of new website sections or the redesign of existing parts of our site.
The Digital Team is made up of 13 people and we’re responsible for the University’s public website. We work across web analytics, content, design (UI and UX) and development (front- and back-end).
We have a Smart Working Policy in the team that allows for significant hybrid working. Most of our communication and collaboration is now conducted online, via MS Teams, but we also have a central London office (next to Oxford Street) that we share with colleagues from both our wider Global Recruitment, Admissions, Marketing and Communications department, as well as other Professional Services departments.
More information about this role can be found in the job description and person specification.
If you’d like an informal discussion to find out more about the role, you’re welcome to contact the team’s Head of Digital, Suvi Streatfield, at firstname.lastname@example.org
At the University of Westminster, diversity, inclusion and equality of opportunity are at the core of how we engage with students, colleagues, applicants, visitors and all our stakeholders.
We are fully committed to enabling a supportive and safe learning and working environment which is equitable, diverse and inclusive, is based on mutual respect and trust, and in which harassment and discrimination are neither tolerated nor acceptable.
The University has adopted Smart Working principles to support and further our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion aims of being an inclusive, collaborative and flexible employer. Further details of Smart Working can be discussed at interview stage.
