Our client in Redbridge is looking for a Digital Connectivity Programme Officer paying £220 a day
Local London is a partnership of 8 authorities.
They are working together to enable and deliver digital connectivity across the sub-region.
We have a strategic investment pot of £9.7m to deliver projects in each authority.
There is a framework to deliver on this and the post-holder will need to make themselves aware of the framework for this programme.
The role will initially be focused on ensuring that the programme is delivered successfully, on time and to budget.
The role will support the development and implementation of the local London digital infrastructure workstream.
The programme involves 9 boroughs in total and will involve coordinating activity across the boroughs for reporting purposes as well as ensuring finances are managed and programmes within boroughs are delivered effectively.
It is also about bringing boroughs together so they can access the digital framework effectively.
A strong understanding of the interface between the public and private sectors is essential. Ideally candidates will have worked for or with digital operators (mobile and/or fixed) in a project or programme management capacity.
We are looking for candidates with strong project management experience and a track record of delivery on time and to budget, ideally with familiarity of public sector processes and governance.
Stakeholder management is key to this role and candidates should have a good understanding of the digital policy context at a national and London level.
There may be further funding available to the programme and the role will be about enabling any additional funding to complement the borough level activity.
The role is also about adopting and implementing new initiatives as they become available, working flexibly with the member authorities
