Technical Delivery Manager

Liverpool John Moores University

Location: Liverpool
Salary: £45,585 to £56,021 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 14th February 2024
Closes: 28th February 2024
Job Ref: 4629

Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) is a distinctive, unique institution, rooted in the Liverpool City Region and with a global presence. Our students and staff, past, present, and future, are the beating heart of our city and can be found in every corner of every industry and community. We couldn’t exist anywhere else and have shaped the city in which we belong.

We are looking for an experienced Technical Delivery Manager who will be a member of the Business Applications team within IT Services. You will be responsible for planning and managing projects to upgrade the packaged software products which support the university’s key business and student systems. This will include continuous improvement releases, full system upgrades and patch-type updates. You will be working with software vendors, 3rd party suppliers, infrastructure colleagues and key business and user communities to plan each upgrade to minimise the impact to the core business functions of the university and to take advantage of periods of reduced activity for our business colleagues and support teams.

You will also be responsible for planning and supporting events which occur on an annual basis throughout the academic year. This could include events which have a high reliance on IT services (e.g., confirmation and clearing processes), or where we provide support to business-led events such as results notification or graduation. You will be expected to work collaboratively with colleagues within the Office of the Registrar to identify these key events; agree who the sponsors or responsible owners are for them; agree the milestones; and identify critical success factors for each, so that success can be quantified.

Underpinning the role, you will be actively engaged in user groups (such as technical steering groups for the different platforms within the Business Applications remit) and will work with the principal developers of each area to ensure that workload prioritisation is consistently managed and is in-line with the expectations and prioritisation agreed at the steering group.

To do all of this you should be methodical and have excellent communication skills to help you collaborate effectively with the various teams you will engage with across the university.

This is an exciting role for a Technical Delivery Manager who enjoys working on a variety of projects that vary in size, complexity, challenge, and technology, within which someone can make a real, positive difference. We are seeking someone with good technical knowledge of a range of service delivery models and business applications and services. A comprehensive and cohesive IT service will be delivered in line with university and IT Services strategies and directives, as communicated by senior management. A customer focussed ethos is vital.

In return, we offer an excellent benefits package including generous annual leave entitlement, pension scheme, induction and development support as well as family-friendly policies.

This is an exciting time to join the university as we deliver the LJMU Strategy 2030 and its vision of LJMU as an inclusive civic university transforming lives and futures, by placing students at the heart of everything we do.

If you feel that this is the role you have been looking for and your skills and experience can make a real difference at LJMU, we look forward to hearing from you.

LJMU values diversity and provides a supportive and inclusive environment where everyone can fulfil their potential.
