The starting salary for this role is £31,273 per annum based on a 36-hour working week.
This role is open to remote working meaning you aren't required in the office 5 days a week. We’re less about you driving to work and more about us collectively driving down our carbon footprint. We care about how you work rather than where you work; the people rather than the postcode. In support of our people and our greener futures strategies, we’d welcome a conversation with the successful candidate on what remote working may look like for you.
Surrey County Council is embarking on an exciting and transformative journey to become a leading-edge authority putting Surrey’s People and Places at the heart of everything we do. We have great ambitions and by 2030 we want Surrey to be a uniquely special place where everyone has a great start to life, people live healthy and fulfilling lives, are enabled to achieve their full potential and contribute to their community, and no one is left behind. To help achieve this, the authority is making a capital investment in excess of £1.5bn over the next five years.
About the role:
To enable us to start work on meeting this vision the Environment, Transport and Infrastructure Directorate (ETI) have created a Programme Management Office (PMO) within the Infrastructure, Planning and Major Projects (IPMP) service. The PMO will support not only the capital major projects that are being initiated within IPMP but also the delivery of all the programmes and projects across the wider directorate including multi-million-pound highways, environmental and waste schemes.
As the PMO Analyst you will need a proven track record of engaging with stakeholders in order to identify opportunities to drive key business outcomes. You will be an analytical thinker who is both diplomatic and pragmatic and be experienced in developing new approaches and methodologies to meet the business need, in a fast-paced environment.
You will provide assurance on policies, standards, procedures, methods, tools and techniques to align our programme delivery. Using industry best practice, legal and regulatory frameworks, you will ensure that projects and programmes are compliant with relevant governance policies and guidelines.
The role requires someone who is self-motivated, takes a pro-active approach, has strong analytical skills and can clearly communicate in a precise and confident manner to ensure that the pace of delivery can be simultaneously matched to the scale of the project.
To be shortlisted for interview, your application will clearly evidence:
- Understanding of project and programme management frameworks, policies, tools and templates
- Strong communication and interpersonal skills
- Research and analytical skills, with a high level of attention to detail
- Experience working within a PMO including scheduling, cost control, risk management and configuration control
- Experience in resource management, planning and forecasting.
If you feel you are a suitable match to the criteria outlined within the job description, we want to hear from you and would encourage you to apply for the role of Programme Management Office Analyst.
