The Local Government Digital Office
The Local Government Digital Office (LGDO) has been exploring the scope and benefits of switching the current Scottish telecare provision from a predominantly analogue based system to a digital service. Digital telecare offers individuals, families and carers, security and peace of mind. It enables people to stay independent in their own homes for as long as possible.
As this work continues to progress, an opportunity has arisen for a Project Manager to join the Local Government Digital Office to support Digital Telecare through the next phase of the transformational change from analogue to digital telecare.
The Project Manager role will be fully funded for 2 years by the Scottish Government's TEC Programme and will be hosted and work as part of the Local Government Digital Office.
We are seeking an enthusiastic and proactive Project Manager to support the development of the Digital Telecare portfolio which has six evolving Programmes. As a Project Manager you will provide assistance to Chief Digital Officer who has responsibility for the Digital Office. The role of Project Manager will play an important part in the shift from analogue to digital telecare which has potential to dramatically transform the future of millions of people across Scotland.
One of the key objectives will be to implement and maintain high quality project management and planning procedures to ensure all projects under the remit of Digital Telecare are effectively managed and controlled, to deliver the expected benefits.
You will be educated to degree level or have equivalent relevant experience, have developed interpersonal skills and ability to apply diplomatic and tactful approach in a manner appropriate to the situation when dealing with key stakeholders and also the ability to work to your own initiative and prioritise workload within challenging timescales.
Previous applicants need not apply.
Location: Home based with travel throughout Scotland.
Duration: Two years temporary contract. Secondments will be considered.
Hours: Standard working week is 36 hours Monday to Friday. Hours can be worked flexibly in agreement with the Line Manager.
