Biometrics, imaging, secure systems – our team’s exploring all of them, and many other technologies. Every day, our experts work to create innovations that help to fight crime in the capital. We can’t tell you more for obvious reasons, so you’ll have to see for yourself. Join us as a Senior Project Manager and you’ll help to deliver bespoke ICT and electronic solutions in a range of specialist areas. Working with emerging technologies, you’ll support game-changing advancements that help to keep Londoners safe.
Our Technology, Research and Innovation (TRI) team keeps the Met on the cutting-edge of tech. Its work is highly innovative and no two projects are ever the same. Some initiatives involve undertaking research with academia or exploring new off-the-shelf technologies. Others involve modifying commercially available products, or creating a whole new solution from scratch.
As a Senior Project Manager, you’ll be delivering these innovative solutions for specialist and sensitive parts of the Met and Counter Terrorism network using trusted suppliers and TRI engineers. Many projects are both high value and high impact.
With this in mind, we need an experienced Project Manager who’s worked at senior levels before. Used to delivering large-scale tech projects, you’ve managed programmes spanning various IT disciplines. You’ll also be comfortable with the entire project lifecycle, from establishing requirements to creating a fully functional product or system. And, as a natural people person, you’ll be great with clients and contacts at every level.
If you also have an HND/HNC (minimum) in IT or Engineering, we can offer a fascinating role that’s essential to the success of the Met. As part of our team, you can expect a range of benefits plus excellent training and the chance to develop.
