One Digital Project Manager
CONTRACT TYPE: Fixed term contract until May 2020
One Digital is a unique partnership intent on creating a scalable movement to improve the basic digital skills and digital inclusion of 12 million people in the UK who are digitally excluded.
Age UK, Citizens Online, Clarion Housing Group, Digital Unite and the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) have worked together over the past 18 months to deploy a variety of Digital Champion models to improve social inclusion by supporting people to gain basic digital skills.
We are now ready to embark on the next exciting phase of the programme and want to appoint a Project Manager who will provide the energy and leadership to ensure the delivery of our One Digital Project providing an exemplar which can help to accelerate the way in which basic digital skills and social inclusion are delivered by our partner organisations. The One Digital Programme will create over 6000 new digital champions and leaders through over 2000 voluntary and community sector organisations to 40,000 people across the UK.
As a key member of our team you will work closely with the Digital Inclusion Manager and the One Digital Delivery Co-ordinator to identify good practice and learning in embedding digital inclusion into an Employment and Training programme.
We'll be looking to you to procure 15 other organisations to embed similar digital inclusion activities into their E&T programmes, including administering seed funding and all aspects of grant & contract management. You'll also ensure these delivery teams produce accurate and timely reports on both performance and spend, collating all data to produce monthly, quarterly and annual reports into monthly and quarterly returns to the grant holding organisation.
We'll need you to have excellent organisational and project management skills and display personal integrity and credibility, as well as proven management and leadership skills.
Your extensive experience of successfully managing multiple delivery partners, supporting them to deliver high quality services on a large geographic basis will be critical for your success in this role, as will your ability to build strong networks and partnerships with internal and external stakeholders at all levels.
You will be experienced in the delivery of complex grant funded programmes, gained from working at a similar senior role, preferably from within a digital inclusion context and be capable of bidding for and delivering large, complex external funding bids.
Your duties will include:
- Procuring and managing an external evaluation of the One Digital project, or elements of it
- Working with One Digital's Community of Practice to share best practice and learning, bringing learning from the wider partnership back to Clarion Housing Group for replication within our own digital inclusion programme
- Representing Clarion Housing Group at One Digital programme-wide events and forums, and other digital inclusion groups and events.
- Conducting effective due diligence and risk analysis to ensure the Group's resources and reputation are protected
Applicants must be able to regularly travel within the area nationally.
