Are you an ITIL professional who can deliver a Quality Service? Do you have expertise in Release & Deployment?

And are you ready to be part of our ground-breaking journey in Robotics, Automation, Machine Learning as part of our epic digital transformation? Then we'd love to hear from you…

We're looking for talented Service Transition Manager to join DWP's Digital Channels project and become a key part of one of the UK's biggest and most high-profile digital transformation programmes, a once-in-a-generation reform of government products and services.

What is Digital Channels?

Digital Channels is a key enabler in DWP's journey to becoming a modern, digital organisation. And it's big. We're redesigning and delivering distinct but interrelated communication channels to over 20 million citizens each year. We handle 120 million transactions each year, rising to 210 million by 2022/23.

With a focus on intelligent technology, citizen-led design, and automation, we're developing an omnichannel service that will provide a high quality, integrated and seamless customer experience and save up to £450m by 2023.

You'll join our award-winning Intelligent Automation Garage team.

IAG is dedicated to pioneering applications of artificial intelligence, such as robotic automation, virtual assistants, machine learning and data analytics. We're creating a best-of-breed toolset for emerging technologies, to build in-house capability, standardise practices and scale deployments.

We're building a virtual workforce, including deployment of computer vision technology, attended RPA, natural language processing, deep learning, optical character recognition and cognitive tools. We want to remove repetitive, mundane and error-prone tasks to free up our brilliant frontline DWP colleagues for the work that they really love and which AI is not (yet) equipped for.

We're very proud to have picked up Tech Team of the Year at the National Technology Awards 2019 and Best Automation Project at the Digital Technology Leaders Awards 2019.

You and your role

IAG has a central role in DWP Digital utilising the evolving areas of Automation, Machine Learning and Robotics. As a Service Transition Manager working within the Intelligent Automation Garage, you will manage the successful and safe introduction of new RPA services into a new or existing environment with minimal disruption to production services and operations.

It's a varied role, evolving as IAG grows. You'll provide overall planning and co-ordination for service transition events. You will also control the lifecycle of all changes, enabling beneficial changes to be made with minimum disruption to IT services.

You'll troubleshoot incidents and problems. You'll articulate to the business stakeholders the impact from downtime. You'll be involved in streamlining Service Operations. You will also collaborate with our key stakeholders, aftercare teams and manage supplier relationships.

What skills and experience are we looking for?

  • Release and deployment experience
  • Change Management experience
  • Understanding of service management framework
  • Application of ITIL in a large organisation
  • Risk Management
  • A proven track record in managing projects
  • Sound knowledge and understanding of digital products and services

Where will you work?

We're just a short walk from Longbenton Metro, and we have great facilities including great coffee shops, snack bars and restaurants as well as gym and team sports facilities. It's a massive site and a hub for tech talent in the North East, hosting regular events and meet-ups across government and beyond.

We are an equal opportunity employer and we welcome applications regardless of age, disability, gender, race or sexuality.
