Training and Culture Change Manager (Digital Transformation)
Central London SE1
£45,808 per annum
Fixed term or secondment opportunity (3 years)
The pandemic has changed how the GLA works – with staff now working from City Hall, our second site in Union Street and from home.
The Digital Transformation Unit at the GLA is leading the work to ensure it’s easy for staff to work from anywhere, by ensuring we have well designed internal digital services, and that GLA staff have the skills to work confidently and effectively from any location.
As the Digital Training and Culture Change Manager, you will work to embed digital culture across the GLA through the promotion of digital best practice and helping GLA staff to develop their digital skills. You’ll have deep experience of working with teams to help them understand the technology and tools available to them to help them meet their business needs, and of developing training programmes and materials to help scale this within a large organisation.
You’ll work with our Learning and Development team to make sure the GLA can make the best possible use of new technology by developing or buying new training courses and opportunities to help us make a step change in our digital maturity, and work with internal communications colleagues to develop communications (both written and events e.g. show and tells) which help staff and members learn how to get the best from the technology available to them.
Your team and work programme
This role will sit within the Programme team in our newly formed Digital Transformation Unit, and report into the Programme Manager. You will be joining the GLA as we invest in a number of roles focused on our digital transformation and user-centred design, including:
• Senior Content Designers
• Senior User Researcher
• Associate User Researcher
• Business Analyst
• Service and Interaction Designer
Organisational design and transformation will be at the heart of Digital Transformation Unit’s work – helping to put in place the building blocks of a modern digital organisation: a common core infrastructure of shared digital systems, technology and processes on which it’s easy to build brilliant, user-centric services and products for citizens, partners and GLA staff. The organisational re-design work will include transformation of:
• Establishment control.
• Correspondence and contact management.
• Mayor’s Questions.
• Freedom of Information requests.
• Functions associated with the work of our Monitoring Officer e.g. registers of interest and gifts and hospitality.
• New requirements from our hybrid working environment.
The Digital Transformation Unit
The GLA’s newly formed Digital Transformation Unit is responsible for the delivery of all internal and external digital products and services at the GLA. The unit is responsible for the design, delivery and management dozens of digital, data and technology services that support the delivery of the functions of the Mayor and the Assembly; and, in doing so, directly serve Londoners.
The GLA’s largest and most visible digital products – London.gov.uk, the London Datastore and Talk London – are used by millions of Londoners every year and provide the GLA with platforms for communications, convening, public engagement, data and information-sharing, and transparency. These services support delivery, scrutiny, and democratic engagement at scale and at a low cost per user compared to non-digital channels and services.
