Vacancy Description

Our Transformation Service is our engine room for making change happen. We have established centres of excellence within the team focussed on design, delivery and Programme Management Office (PMO) bringing together the wide range of specialist skillsets required to help our organisation transform.

We have an ambitious programme of work ahead of us, set out in our Creating Futures programme which describes an exciting blueprint for all of our services across the Council. Our ambition is to establish a best-in-class Transformation function and offer, and we are looking for individuals who are keen to help us deliver change and help us grow and develop our function.

As a Transformation Project Manager you will be a key agent in ensuring change happens in Waltham Forest. Part of our Delivery Team, you will lead projects and work alongside service designers to help design and deliver new ways of working – using a structured approach and ensure that we deliver lasting, impactful change. You will also make sure that senior managers have the right information to base strategic decisions on that will affect the direction of the whole organisation.

We’re looking for individuals who are driven to improve public services and have significant practical experience of delivering successful, high-profile projects that have made a demonstrable difference. You should have strong analytical skills, an ability to generate energy and excitement about change, the ability to work to tight deadlines and a strong drive for personal and professional development. But above all, it’s your excellent interpersonal skills that will help you stand out – we’re looking for someone with the ability to challenge how we work as an organisation in sensitive and constructive ways, and experience of successfully influencing senior stakeholders within a complex organisation.

The London Borough of Waltham Forest is fiercely ambitious. We want to make sure each and every one of our residents enjoys a quality life in London.

Be part of the vision

Our aim is that every single Waltham Forest resident enjoys a good quality life. We have a no-nonsense approach to getting things done and are embarking on a new phase in our transformation where five key principles – Our Unique strengths, Return on Investment, People Focussed, New relationships and New ways of working – will underpin everything we do for our residents.
