The National Gallery

Digital Dossier Senior Project Manager – 30 Months FTC

The National Gallery is seeking to appoint a pro-active and knowledgeable individual to help deliver its Digital Dossier Programme (DDP). This ambitious research infrastructure and knowledge-enabling change programme is a key element of the ‘Research for Public Benefit’ pillar of the National Gallery’s 2021-26 Strategic Plan.

A range of projects are scheduled to begin under the Programme’s initial phase, to be delivered by April 2025 (30 months), as part of the Gallery’s bicentenary celebrations. The post-holders will work across DDP project streams, under the direction of the Programme lead.

JOB CONTEXT

This role is key to delivering the National Gallery’s ambition to build a Digital Dossier, an online resource that allows users to find all the gallery’s data and content online, all in one place. The projects under the DDP umbrella require a coordinated approach and the postholder will help deliver key elements of the programme. Working under the DDP Programme Manager, the role will take responsibility for interdependency and risk, for project staff, and for delivery on time and to budget.

JOB PURPOSE

The Digital Dossier Project (DDP) Project Manager will manage and deliver key DDP projects, to tight deadlines and within budget, supporting the Digital Dossier Programme.

All work packages have been scoped and costed, however, there may be a degree of additional planning, scheduling, design, and implementation.

The role will be responsible for this review and accountable for delivering a specific portfolio of projects, as part of the overall DDP.

Whilst taking direction from a central delivery roadmap, the role will work independently and own their own individual sub-roadmap. The role will also host and attend project meetings, coordinating all parties (internal & external) to ensure the complete and on-time delivery of all agreed activity.
