Our award-winning Parking Service is looking for a new Projects Officer to lead, develop and deliver across a range of activities within the Systems Improvement Project.
About the role
As part of the team you will be leading or supporting a range of activities designed to help the service to modernise the systems we use, so that we can improve both the customer’s experience and improve things for staff too.
You will provide support to the Digital Product Manager, Customer Service Manager and team leaders – and you’ll also find many opportunities to contribute your own ideas, develop your own project management skills, and be a part of moving the service forward. You will help the team adapt their business processes to get the best out of new systems as they are implemented, and develop the monitoring needed to ensure we know what’s working and what needs renewed focus.
You will work with various teams within Parking, the wider City Transport Department, supporting services, and IT developers, so the work will be varied and interesting.
Fixed term for 24 months

We are committed to developing and retaining a workforce that is representative of the diverse communities we serve so we welcome applications from individuals from all backgrounds. In order to achieve our aims of proportionate representation, we particularly encourage applicants from a BME or White Other background as well as those who identify as disabled, male or trans.

We welcome applications from all sections of the community but particularly encourage applicants from a BME or White Other background as well as those who identify as disabled, LGB, female or trans as these groups are currently under-represented in our Directorate workforce.
