Senior Project Manager
I work in transformation, responding to the changing nature of crime
Our vision is for London to be the safest global city. Achieving this involves transforming every aspect of how we operate – this is the biggest transformation in the Met’s history, led by our world-class Transformation Directorate.
As the UK’s largest police service, we employ more than 40,000 people and account for 25% of the national policing budget. The scale, breadth and pace of our transformation is unparalleled, and we are looking for the best talent to help us deliver our ambitious vision. This is your chance to help shape the police service of the future – and to work with highly driven and committed professionals from across the breadth of policing services. With your help, we can make it happen.
You’ll join our programme delivery team within the Transformation Directorate, joining our team of programme and project managers who are at the heart of managing the change across a range of exciting, dynamic projects. Working with multi-skilled teams you’ll bring your flexible approach, problem-solving and negotiating skills together, using a structured PPM framework to ensure we achieve our goals.
As a Senior Project Manager, you’ll have experience of delivering projects across the entire project lifecycle, and will have supporting qualifications for this. You’ll demonstrate tenacity and focus, with a track record of delivering. You’ll be project managing one of the projects within our portfolio, and will have experience of delivering projects at pace or scale, or be able to demonstrate your potential to do so at the Met. You’ll be enthusiastic, passionate and driven, with strong interpersonal and stakeholder management skills to enable you to work with a range of stakeholders, sometimes with competing demands, leading matrix managed teams to deliver outputs. The projects within our portfolio are exciting, complex and will collectively improve the policing of London.
With your help, we can transform the services we provide to the public; from tackling organised crime to protecting vulnerable people, we will be prepared to respond to every challenge more effectively and efficiently.
Working in our Transformation Directorate will be challenging and rewarding. We provide world-class training and development and a generous reward package, and you will have the satisfaction of knowing you have made an invaluable contribution to keeping London safe.
