About the work

Who the specialist will work with
The programme is comprised of a mixed team of Civil Servants and client side consultants supplemented with SMEs both client and supply side. The programme team also comprises seconded operational and retired Police Officers. The programme also utilises one large supplier (Application Development Support Partner) for most of the build activity associated with LEDS and a collection of small SMEs focused on activities such as data migration, testing and data quality.

One of NLEDP's key objectives is to determine the future need for new services to make national data easy to access by frontline officers to inform local policing decisions.
As Project Manager, you will support the NLEDP leadership team in delivering outputs necessary to fulfill the wider outcome delivery objectives of the programme. You will work with PMO and other enabling functions, stakeholders and suppliers to ensure that project are understood and properly defined, and that plans are put in place to deliver and managed these projects in line with programme governance and direction.
