Join a dynamic Information Technologies team focused on shaping the future of the House of Commons.
The House of Commons has been undergoing important changes in the past 3 years. A younger representation, which is very well versed in the technology tools available, combined with the need for greater transparency in providing information to the public, has triggered the launch of multiple information technology initiatives. As well, a series of major capital projects are underway to renovate our aging heritage Parliament buildings.
Information Services has been reshaped to be better positioned to deliver and support those initiatives. A centralized Project Management Office has been created and a harmonization initiative has put in place a methodology and a governance to oversee all project types. This provides all the project managers within our organization with the tools they need to succeed in delivering on time, according to the established schedule, on budget and within scope.
The Information Technology (IT) and Building Components and Connectivity (BCC) Project Managers are accountable for providing project leadership, planning, implementation and delivery of large scale, high impact and mission critical multi-disciplinary and multifaceted Information Technology (IT) infrastructure, facilities, services and applications projects established in support of the House of Commons’ strategic IT directions and priorities. Example of notable initiatives are: technology deployments in newly renovated Parliamentary Precinct Heritage buildings, mobile application developments, new Networking deployment, WiFi deployment, software and hardware lifecycling, HR & Financial systems, security systems, etc.
This involves establishing, in collaboration with stakeholders short and long-term project objectives, goals, priorities, work plans, milestones and schedules, identifying resources and skill requirements, developing investment analysis reports, organizing and chairing meetings to discuss and explain options, strategies or implementation issues; monitoring work against planned deliverables; resolving delivery issues; providing direction to internal and external resources; and leading the development and preparation of reports and recommendations. It also includes assessing the quality of proposals and work performed by contractors, to determine if they comply with approved project methodology and established stakeholders standards as well as contract terms and conditions.
We are offering positions as Senior IT project managers, assigned to more traditional IT projects such as for example IT infrastructure or application development. We also have position as Senior BCC project managers assigned to projects in infrastructure deployment of technology building systems such as physical security systems, IT cabling and telecom rooms and multimedia. The Senior BCC project managers will be assigned to projects such as the future renovation of the Center Block.
Bilingual non-imperative appointments could also be considered.
