Listed 22 July 2019

Emergency Services Mobile Communications Programme Business Change and Assurance Manager, Area Manager Secondment

Closing date 1200 hrs Fri 16 August 2019

 The Emergency Services Mobile Communications Programme (ESMCP) is delivering the next generation of communications technology for the emergency services, the Emergency Services Network (ESN).  A vacancy exists for a Business Change and Assurance Manager (BCAM) as a senior role within the NFCC ESN team working with and between ESMCP, the Fire Directorate of the Home Office and Fire and Rescue Services, as ESN is built, tested and deployed.

Emerging from a period of reset, ESMCP is moving forward on a confident footing and is refining its plans to ramp up and deliver at scale over the next few years, with the first ESN products available early in 2020.  Working to the Business Change Lead and overseeing a team of Regional Coordination Managers, the BCAM is a pivotal role for the Fire and Rescue Service within ESN and suited to someone who is used to delivering at pace, working with agile methodologies and in a multi-agency environment.

This is a secondment opportunity, initially for 2 years, on a peripatetic basis and the post holder should expect to work in London and undertake regular travel both within the UK and potentially beyond.  Applications are welcomed from suitably experienced individuals with an aptitude and awareness of working on large and complex Programmes, and who are currently employed by a UK Fire and Rescue Service.  A good knowledge of operational communications from a Control or Operational Background would be advantageous.  This post will be subject to security clearance (SC), which will be undertaken prior to taking up the secondment if not already held.  It is anticipated that the secondment will commence in the autumn of 2019.

For an informal discussion with the Business Change Lead, Ian Taylor, contact via Rowena Roy or 07554 339 106.  Please send CV’s (maximum 4 sides) and a supporting statement (maximum 750 words) to Rowena Roy at the same email address.
