Manage high profile projects to help protect London

At the Met, we need to continually adapt to keep pace with London’s changing needs. Our Technology, Research and Innovation (TRI) project teams are at the forefront of these changes, leading the projects that make a huge impact on our ability to keep Londoners safe. Join us as a Senior Project Manager and you’ll play a pivotal role in leading the projects that are transforming our service.

You’ll be the point of contact for all TRI project management, while managing a range of high profile IT projects that will have a major impact on the Met’s operational capability. This involves the day-to-day leadership of a variety of technical projects simultaneously. Working closely with senior leaders, you’ll prepare and gain approval for business cases, secure relevant funding, define project scopes and approve technical solutions. You’ll also set out project plans and monitor progress, while managing finances, ensuring security compliance and enabling effective communication between project teams and the business. In short, you’ll manage every aspect of each project to ensure they are delivered on time and to budget.

You’ll have an IT or engineering degree, HNC/HND or equivalent, and ideally a relevant project management qualification. With extensive high-level project and programme management experience through the entire project cycle, you’ll be comfortable managing multi-disciplinary teams of internal and external developers. You’ll also be used to developing SLAs, contracts and business cases and allocating resources effectively. Naturally, you’ll be a confident communicator and a motivational leader, with exceptional organisational skills.

An experienced object-oriented programmer, you’ll have strong knowledge of databases and web development. You’ll also have a background in developing, implementing, testing and validating network architectures, with an understanding of network communications data analysis and both wired and wireless architectures. With a sound knowledge of the application of IT security to sensitive data, you’ll also be familiar with penetration testing and IT health checks.

Completed applications must be submitted by 9th May 2021.

We view diversity as fundamental to our success. To tackle today’s complex policing challenges, we need a workforce made up from all of London’s communities. Applications from across the community are therefore essential.

As a Disability Confident Committed Employer, the Met have committed to ensuring that disabled people and those with long-term health conditions have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations.


London covers 620 square miles and is home to millions of people speaking over 300 different languages. In this most vibrant and complex of cities, this presents an ever-evolving challenge for the Met when fighting to reduce crime - and the fear of crime.

Forging close relationships, building trust and understanding the issues within London’s different communities all form part of the fundamental platform on which effective, credible policing is built.

As a result, we must continue to recruit the brightest and the best people from every background and use the full spectrum of their skills, knowledge and experience to make London safer for everybody.
