IT Projects Support Analyst - Swindon


It’s a busy time here at the National Trust and there is an increasing demand for the delivery of IT related projects during the coming year.
To help us achieve this ambitious goal our IT Assurance & Risk team needs to support and assure the successful delivery of these IT projects and programmes, and we are expanding our team do this.
This is a fixed term contract due to end when the previous employee returns from maternity leave.  At this point we cannot confirm exactly how long this contract will last, but it is unlikely to be more than 12 months.

What it's like to work here

IT is a busy department and technology plays a key part in enabling the National Trust to deliver on its strategic objectives. Our vision is to equip the Trust with the technology we all need to do our jobs confidently. Working collaboratively with all areas of the Trust, the IT teams focus on delivering the Trust’s priority information services at pace, focusing on the needs of our people and supporters.
With typically more than 40 IT projects in-flight, varying in complexity, size and subject matter there is a lot of great work being delivered.
Your contractual location will be our head office in Swindon, however there will be an opportunity to explore and agree hybrid working arrangements which strike the right balance for you and the Trust. The role will involve travel to our head office to meet with stakeholders and to carry out work.

What you'll be doing

Working as an IT Project Support Analyst is varied and rewarding. You’ll help to assure the IT aspects of the many projects that are key to delivering our strategic objectives within the Trust. You’ll be ensuring that our Project Management framework and IT Assurance processes are appropriately followed in your part of the IT Portfolio. 
The assurance process is undertaken by reviewing and analysing key project documentation such as highlight reports, business cases, resource forecasts and project plans.  You’ll be a key point of contact for IT project managers to understand the IT assurance requirements and how to apply them.
