Job Description

HMLR are recruiting for two permanent Project Managers, within our Transformation directorate.

HM Land Registry is an essential component of the conveyancing process and of the functioning of the property market generally. Its data is of significant value to digital services in the public and private sectors. HM Land Registry (HMLR) wants to make the best contribution it can to a world-leading healthy and efficient property market.

To achieve this HMLR is making significant investment in its transformation. The Transformation Portfolio spans multiple years, investing in a range of products and services, including people, customers, digital and ways of working changes. Delivery of the portfolio is through a combination of waterfall, agile and business as usual change. There are several suppliers involved in delivery and it impacts on thousands of staff and millions of customers. As such it is inherently complex, iterative, risky and wide ranging.

As we transition between the current business strategy and the next, whilst negotiating a spending review for the first time and adjusting to a COVID19 world, this role is being created to bring more resilience in the management of the portfolio.

Working within HMLR’s Transformation Portfolio, you will be accountable for delivery of a range of projects.

Reporting to the Programme Manager, as a Project Manager you will be responsible for the delivery of programmes which are designed to deliver HM Land Registry’s (HMLR) Business Strategy and often complex projects, ensuring delivery on time, within budget and meeting quality expectations. You will be responsible to deliver projects within government best practise and to meet HMLR’s project delivery standards and processes. You will be a part of a dynamic team, both as a leader of your project and part of the wider Programme and Portfolio team and be a great communicator, adapting your style to suit a wide range of situations.
