This is a critical role in analysing plans and managing projects at an exciting department that is supporting one of the Government’s highest priorities.

The Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) is responsible for providing leadership across government to ensure we get the best deal for Britain and put in place a deep and special relationship with the EU. Within DExEU the Policy and Delivery Coordination Directorate leads on coordinating the domestic policy implications of exit, across government departments. The work is all about seizing opportunities and ensuring a smooth process of exit.

As a Senior Portfolio Analyst, you will seek to understand, monitor and analyse departmental plans and implementation timetables. You will ensure that plans are on track, identify interdependencies, scheduling constraints, critical milestones and delivery risks. Identifying and monitoring delivery timelines and policy decisions, you will see that decision-making is well planned and effectively coordinated. Crucially, you will provide senior stakeholders with clear written and verbal briefings and advice based on your analysis. Along the way, you will work closely with our analytical team, project and programme managers, and policy leads.

To be equal to the challenge you will need to be a collaborative individual with expert level project management and analytical skills. You have a track record of coordinating the delivery of complex programmes in a rapidly changing environment. When it comes to analysis, you are equally skilled at conceptual and quantitative approaches, and you demonstrate the ability to identify issues across an exceptionally wide-ranging and diverse portfolio. Your strong leadership skills will equip you to set direction for your team and keep them motivated.

Closing date: 19 February 2018.
