Fixed Term Contract/Secondment post for 12 months.

A secondment/fixed term opportunity is available within the Digital Technology Services team for a Technical Project Manager to co-ordinate, deploy, plan and support implementation of new and existing telephony, video conferencing and other IT solutions.

The post holder will require the ability to lead and manage a project team and champion IT and Telephony solutions.

The post holder should have the ability to maintain a positive approach to project delivery and demonstrate the ability to manage and overcome risks and issues.

The successful candidate will work closely with stakeholders, of which many include administrative and clinical staff, to ensure that the project and work stream deliverables are met within the parameters of time, quality and cost.

As outlined in the job description, the post holder may manage a project in its entirety or may be responsible for a number of work streams. The post holder will be responsible for a range of procurement activities, scoping solutions, deployment and early life support, in particular those related to telecommunications solutions at any site where BCHC employees operate, therefore previous experience of leading and managing a telecommunications work stream is advantageous.

Other desirable qualities include previous experience in the configuration and deployment skills related to IP Telephony platforms.

Personal qualities include good negotiating skills, highlighting benefits related to change and strong communication skills that portray technical information in lay terms.

Although the post is based at our Birmingham office you will be required to travel across the Trust on a regular basis, sometimes at short notice.

Project work is fast paced so the applicant should have the aptitude to work quickly and at times under pressure.
