Job Description

The Role

Working with a variety of stakeholders at all levels of seniority across the Civil Aviation Authority, and in collaboration with a SharePoint architect, you will develop, configure, test and deliver into production SharePoint sites and templates as part of the rollout of a comprehensive overhaul of information management at the CAA. This is a central part of a transformation designed to revolutionise the way CAA staff in all departments collaborate with colleagues to deliver world-class management and utilisation of the large amount of intelligence flowing into the organisation, and enable a step-change in the impact the CAA are able to have on the level of safety, security and value of the UK aviation industry to the public.

About You

The successful candidate will be an experienced SharePoint developer who can engage successfully with end users to understand requirements, deliver high quality solutions, and mentor users and administrators across the organisation on best use of the policies, practices, strategies and tactics for use of the new sites and features. In future you will be likely to take on leadership of a small team responsible for further enhancement and development of the SharePoint estate at the CAA.

During the first 30 days the successful candidate will be expected to;

  • Review and validate the existing plans for development on the project
  • Review and validate the data migration approach and principles to maximise value
  • Establish effective working relationships with key business stakeholders
  • Undertake initial prototype site development for pathfinder projects

You will also be able to adopt and advance the project team’s working culture, which aims to provide value-driven services to its stakeholders for the whole of the CAA and its subsidiaries.

What’s it in for you?

  • This is a once in a generation change for the CAA, all aligned around improving our use and management of information. It’s an opportunity to get into a key and central role on this major transformation for an organisation with an inspiring mission.
  • There are plenty of challenges to tackle - the business often struggles to overcome information silos, multiple document management systems with duplicated and sub-optimally structured data, ineffective search capabilities in some areas, and a recognition that in some domains we don’t have a comprehensive grasp of the information we already hold. The opportunity to make a difference and have a genuine impact is great.
  • The key stakeholders behind this transformation are right at the top of the organisation, and the successful candidate is likely to have exposure and access to influence those top “C-level” managers.
  • The successful candidate will have a good degree of freedom to influence solutions and direction, and you will be breaking new ground and shaping the future of information management at the CAA.
  • A successful outcome in this role will have a positive impact on the future safety record of the aviation industry in the UK and globally – resulting in fewer accidents and improved safety.

We look forward to receiving your application!

Interviews will be scheduled for week commencing 9th October 2017.
