Head of PMO, Strategic Estate Portfolio House of Commons – London 313 views

£49,500 a year

To manage the HoP Strategic Estates Portfolio Management Office to support and enable successful delivery of estates projects and programmes across the Estate.

The Strategic Estates team was established 1 June 2016 following the Director General of the House of Commons’ review and the resulting change programme (‘Stepping up’).

Parliament established the Strategic Estate Portfolio (SEP) following a recognition that the major estate programmes that will impact on the House of Commons and the House of Lords are to varying degrees complementary and interdependent: notably Restoration & Renewal, the R&R decant solution, the House of Commons Northern Estate, the Parliamentary Archives, and the Relocation Contingencies Programme. SEP also includes the existing capital project delivery team and the other estates professional services that support both ‘business as usual’ projects and the strategic portfolio. This includes a ‘light touch’ portfolio management office (PMO) function.

The PMO team works across the portfolio of estates projects in both Houses to provide integrated scheduling, management of interdependencies, resource management, portfolio analysis and reporting, plus other assurance and audit controls to enable successful project delivery. This team will work in close cooperation with the Enterprise PMO within Corporate Services and the various programme PMO teams.
