Key Words / Skills: Project Manager, MOJ, Royal Courts, MOD, Policy Setting, Governance, Courts.
Wilde Recruitment Ltd are looking to recruit an Assistant Project Manager & a Project Manager to work for MOJ initially on a 6 month contract WFH / London.
As a Project Manager, your responsibilities and duties may include:
Project manager role:
Lead management of College project to plan and implement the magistrates training review recommendations (particularly, in the first instance, those related to improvements that can be made under existing delivery models).
Examine existing processes and – working with Judicial Education Team and Digital Learning Team – identify a timeline and process for prioritisation and implementation of the recommendations to improve of magistrates’ training to deliver a more resilient and future-proofed system which meets magistrates and wider justice system needs but reduces resource burden on staff. Includes:
Analysing and finalising recommendations approved by consultants and agreed by senior judiciary.
Developing timeline and process for change, working with stakeholders where necessary - if successful – helping to roll out changes to magistrates’ training.
The implementation plan must consider the priority areas for the Judicial College, the readiness for change evident, the time that would be required to implement the changes, any financial implications and the way in which the recommendations are interconnected with each other.
As work on the overall delivery model develops, and subject to funding and resourcing allocations being approved, plan and support implementation of wider changes to the model.
Regular reporting to Judicial College SMT, provide advice to Executive Director and College Board on choices to support recovery (the College Board has asked for a standing agenda item on this at their meetings – 3-4 per year).
Key delivery targets/benefits
New model for the operation of magistrates’ training that is fit for purpose and future-proofed, with proper processes and systems in place, aligned with Departmental priorities including contributing to a modern, transparent and efficient court system, ensuring the magistracy is better placed to meet anticipated future increased demands on the justice system and different ways of working, accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
A key aim of magistrates’ training is to ensure a “competent” and “confident” magistracy. How they are trained, and how they develop and learn, is therefore of fundamental importance to the delivery of justice.
In addition to supporting magistrates to be effective and confident in what they do, training provision must also support broader objectives relating to the Reform programme, recruitment and retention, safeguarding public and Parliamentary confidence in the justice system, and ensuring magistrates feel they are part of the wider judicial family.
To achieve this, the profile of magistrates’ training will be raised within the justice system and with employers and prospective magistrates, there will be a greater and more varied training, learning and development offer, which will be more aligned to judicial training.
You will be an experienced Project Manager.
Ideally 5-10 years experience.
HNC / HND / Degree / Chartered.
