DWP. Digital with Purpose.
DWP is the UK's largest government department. We help people into work, and make payments worth over £195bn a year to support some of the most vulnerable people in our society.
We are looking for a Senior Digital Project Manager to join our community of tech experts in DWP Digital. We're driving a once-in-a-generation transformation of government services, using fresh ideas and leading-edge technologies to create innovative, scalable and user-centric digital solutions.
Delivery. Work. Projects.
Your first job with DWP will be to bring your project management expertise to our Fuel Poverty Team (FPT).
You will enable the design, development and delivery of a wide range of technical and operational services which support high profile schemes aimed at targeting fuel poverty.
In practice that means you'll be producing and monitoring delivery plans, building partnerships across government and the private sector, coordinating the strategy and delivery of services from commercial, communication and governance experts, managing the design and delivery of a major reform programme, and lots more.
And you'll do all this within the context of a volatile energy market where we need to respond quickly to changes to policy and industry trends.
We're a small team (just 6 of us) working within Digital Data & Analytics. We're provide data matching and operational in collaboration with Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)
Our team also provides a bespoke data matching service to energy suppliers to ensure they meet their legal obligation around rebates. In practice this means about £140m is paid to approximately 1 million households across the UK.
We're collaborating closely with BEIS to design a data matching and operational solution that will deliver the major reforms in 2022, redefining eligibility criteria and automating rebates so people who need it get the money they're due
