Citizens Advice offers confidential advice online, over the phone, and in person, for free. Through our national network of charities, we give people the knowledge and the confidence they need to find their way forward – whoever they are, and whatever their problem.
In 2018-19 we helped 2.7 million people face to face, over the phone, by email and webchat, and people visited our online advice pages 28.5 million times. We help with everything from money issues to problems at work, housing to consumer rights.
As Senior Project Manager you’ll hold a senior role within the Continuous Improvement function of the Help to Claim programme, bringing effective project management to the function, ensuring efficient delivery of innovative solutions to improve service delivery.
You’ll support the development of innovative solutions to improve service delivery, showing leadership to integrate an agile and user-focused approach through the whole development of a solution (from concept to through to pilot).
In the role, you’ll provide project management oversight to the Continuous Improvement function, whilst managing the programme's relationship with the wider learning and development department.
This exciting and dynamic role will test your leadership, agile working, problem and solution ownership, strategic ownership, user focus and coaching skills, so that you can drive continuous improvement and change into the service, department and organisation. You will inspire an innovative way of working and help to integrate it across the organisation. You will help transform the organisation into a forward-thinking leader in the third sector as it adapts to, and thrives in, the digital economy.
Our roles are open to discussion about flexible working, which may include arrangements such as part-time working, formalised flexitime, fixed (non-standard) working hours, working from home and job-sharing.
Flexible working - while our teams are office based, it's fine to work from home regularly, and we welcome discussions about working part-time.
