Job Vacancy: System Integration Project (SIP) Specialist

Fixed term to 31 July 2020
Salary £36,876 to £39,782


Please note that this vacancy is ring-fenced to current, permanent employees of local authorities represented by NEPO or YORprocure. Secondment applications are welcomed.

We are looking for someone to provide specialist support to the strategic direction of the Systems Integration Project (SIP), supporting the design, commissioning and implementation of the new system and the implementation of appropriate governance arrangements.

The postholder will support the effective interfacing with stakeholders at all levels across all contracting authorities with the aim of maintaining existing enthusiasm, overcoming hurdles and supporting collaborative goals. The postholder will also support the development of an output-based specification which will ensure the resulting system is both in keeping with the aspirations of the project, unlocks potential and will provide a platform for potential commercial opportunities through the NEPO Associate Membership scheme.

This project is being delivered by NEPO in partnership with YORprocure (who represent 24 Yorkshire and Humber local authorities). YORprocure will not only be taking an active role in leading this project but will also be utilising the resulting system. This will present the successful candidate with a wealth of stakeholder input, and will also mean the need to travel across both regions will be significant.

Closing date: 23.00 on Sunday 24 February 2019.
Interview date: Thursday 7 March 2019 in Newcastle upon Tyne.
