This role will develop effective stakeholder relationships and through this work the Implementation Project Lead will identify learnings from delivery that will inform the future Hart strategy.

 

With great access to senior individuals in the business, this role offers the opportunity to influence the creation of a new area of business for Grosvenor with a strong focus on social impact.

Do you want to help shape and deliver the digital innovation journey for a leading London Borough, and help impact people’s lives for the better?

 

Bursting with culture, energy and opportunity, Waltham Forest is a place where people want to live, raise a family, and start a business. It’s also a fantastic place to work as they provide key services and deliver exciting programmes that improve the lives of their residents, including the Mayor of London’s first ever Borough of Culture.  With the new Fellowship Square campus now open, you can be right at the heart of our community in a fantastic modern workplace. These are just some of the changes driving Waltham Forest as the place to be and one that you could help shape in this role.

We are therefore looking for someone who now wants to build on these firm foundations and lead the Council’s technology architecture, governance, and design solutions which can be successfully implemented. In this exciting role you will:

You will be attracted by the opportunity to build upon the firm foundations already delivered, and design innovative solutions that will help transform how the Council works and ultimately improve the life of residents in this part of London.

 

You will be experienced and ambitious to lead on technical and digital aspects of architecture and be the authority for how we can develop and deliver the solutions we need in order to make the biggest impact. You’ll be inquisitive about innovation and focused on improving services and delivering savings. It will be essential to work in partnership internally and externally and welcome collaborative working; as well as be a great communicator and stakeholder manager.

 

You will have a proven track record of designing and delivering successful systems architecture and leading engaged and effective teams. The role calls for a pragmatic individual who has both a strategic view and the desire to roll up their sleeves to get things done. You will have an impressive track record of working on systems architecture change and promoting excellent operational performance in tandem, someone who can deliver at pace within tight budget circumstances – focussing on making a real difference to the council services and end users.

 

We are keen to hear from all applicants who fit the criteria. Because we are clear that a combination of difference in our teams produces the best team performance, we are particularly keen to make sure that we attract people from ethnic minorities, people who live openly as LGBTQI+, or with a disability. We recognise that what people bring through their personal experiences, background and identity significantly enhances the Council’s ability to deliver to our staff and residents.

Do you want to help shape and deliver the digital innovation journey for a leading London Borough, and help impact people’s lives for the better?

 

Bursting with culture, energy and opportunity, Waltham Forest is a place where people want to live, raise a family and start a business. It’s also a fantastic place to work as they provide key services and deliver exciting programmes that improve the lives of their residents, including the Mayor of London’s first ever Borough of Culture. With the new Fellowship Square campus now open, you can be right at the heart of our community in a fantastic modern workplace. These are just some of the changes driving Waltham Forest as the place to be and one that you could help shape in this role.

 

From their response to the Covid–19 outbreak to their ambitious regeneration and growth programme, this is an exceptional opportunity to help reimagine the borough for the digital age, accelerate growth in key digital services and skills, and work with front-line teams to use technology to transform resident services. The Digital and ICT teams are at the heart of driving change and innovation and this role is central to turning great ideas into new capabilities that make a positive impact for Waltham Forest’s residents and businesses.

As the Local Authority of the Year 2019 (MJ awards), Waltham Forest expects high standards. This is a relatively new role that reports directly to the Chief Digital and Information Officer (CDIO), playing a vital part in shaping the future strategy of Waltham Forest’s digital agenda and spearheading technology to facilitate better public service.

 

The team is some way through their transformation plan, having moved most technology to the cloud, and approximately 80% of front-end transactions are now completed online. We are therefore looking for someone who now wants to work with stakeholders across the Council to design and implement the next stage of our exciting plan and:

 

  • Be a visionary and pragmatic thought-leader in digital and technology to find intelligent solutions and inspire colleagues with what can be achieved in the context of constraints of public sector.
  • Be lead officer responsible for digital innovation, understanding stakeholder needs, defining what is needed and ensuring successful delivery of innovative digital solutions and products which will meet the needs of services and the Waltham Forest community
  • Provide direction and leadership, operational management and financial control for the Digital & Technology strategy, and roadmap within the Council, overseeing the Digital Delivery and Enterprise Architecture teams
  • Lead the embracing of new opportunities which will provide the tools and capabilities that will transform the work of our staff and Members and how their residents and local businesses interact with the Council and its services.
  • Be accountable for digital delivery and operations and the delivery of excellent online customer experience.
  • Be accountable for the technology architecture and roadmap of the organisation, ensuring the Council takes advantage of the latest / most appropriate technology to deliver its overall vision and goals
  • Be accountable for the security and governance of Waltham Forest’s technology platforms.
  • Understand the supplier market and what Waltham Forest can build themselves. Work with stakeholders to choose suppliers and solutions that meet organisational needs.
  • Work with colleagues and departments across the Council to introduce the latest digital techniques (including Agile and Lean) which will allow rapid deployment and development within a longer-term transformational context.

 

This exciting opportunity will suit someone who wants to deliver innovative and cost-effective digital solutions that provide unrivalled customer experience and value, especially within local government and the public sector. You will understand how to bring different ideas and requirements together into a clear strategy and communicate it effectively. You will have a proven track record of delivering successful technology products and leading engaged and effective digital teams.

 

The role calls for a pragmatic individual with an impressive track record of working on significant change, bringing stakeholders with you and promoting excellent operational performance in tandem, someone who can deliver at pace within tight budget circumstances – focussing on making a real difference to the council services and end users.

 

We are keen to hear from all applicants who fit the criteria. Because we are clear that a combination of difference in our teams produces the best team performance, we are particularly keen to make sure that we attract people from ethnic minorities, people who live openly as LGBTQI+, or with a disability. We recognise that what people bring through their personal experiences, background and identity significantly enhances the Council’s ability to deliver to our staff and residents.
