We’re more than digital. We’re improving lives.

Our Project Delivery Support Team is integral to making sure that our ambitious targets for digital transformation are achieved. As the Project Delivery Support Team Leader you’ll be responsible for managing and leading a team which looks after our project portfolio, supports our programme and project delivery team and manages a wide variety of smaller projects and deliverables.

You’ll get to see the big picture of how the work that we do supports our digital strategy and changes lives for people in the borough. By understanding and reporting on the portfolio you’ll be ideally placed to review project processes and procedures, identify issues and dependencies and lead on introducing improvements and new ways of working. It’s a chance to really take ownership by guiding project managers, devising new approaches to project delivery and empowering the team by creating a supportive environment.

With an understanding of different project management approaches, you’ll have proven experience and fantastic organisation, reporting and relationship skills. That means you know how to manage stakeholders, budgets, resources and any issues. In return for your skills, we can offer the chance to be part of an inclusive team, within an incredible borough. Hounslow has green spaces, unique history, cosmopolitan hubs and fantastic transport links – in short, it’s unlike anywhere else. At the heart of all this is our council, offering flexible working, career development and a whole range of generous benefits.  

Join us at the forefront of innovation and use your skills to make a positive impact.    

Although we are currently working remotely, it is important that you will be able to travel to Hounslow when required after restrictions are lifted. 

You must be eligible to work in the UK.
