ICT Solutions Manager
ICT Department

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service are looking for a suitably qualified, experienced and enthusiastic person to join the ICT Department, based at Service Headquarters, Carmarthen. This is a full-time role working 37 hours per week (Monday – Friday)

The role
This is a new and exciting full-time, role working in the restructured ICT Department, leading the ICT Solutions Team tasked with providing business driven ICT solutions across our Service ranging from the 999 control centre to fire stations and commands and Fire Service Headquarters.

It is ideal for an experienced ICT professional who loves new technologies, creating innovative and practical solutions and providing end users with the tools they need to be effective at their job.

What we're looking for

This role requires utilising different project management methodologies as appropriate to each project, great people management skills, good technical understanding of ICT concepts and the ability to detail technical ideas in an easy to understand way. You will also need the ability to evaluate project requirements, estimate resources and timelines, provide constant analysis and reporting of the project milestones and ensure end-to-end delivery of the project or solution. In this role you will gather information from various stakeholders, evaluate priorities and risks, create technical analysis, test potential and final solutions (creating clear evaluation and testing plans) and ensure the team is working efficiently and to their strengths. This is very much a hands-on role and you  will be heavily involved in all aspects of the project from initiation to testing and delivery. There will be multiple projects of various sizes running concurrently, all of which need to be carefully managed.

As a manager in a 5-person team, you will need to demonstrate sound line-management and leadership skills to ensure that the team work efficiently and effectively, and resources are carefully managed. You will also need to have great interpersonal skills, capable of working effectively alongside the managers of the other ICT teams, communicating well with other departments and external suppliers of products and services.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service pride themselves on their innovative approach to solving problems and utilising technology to enhance the way the employees can achieve results. With a mix of cutting edge and legacy technologies currently in place we have created a new ICT solutions team which will be looking to utilise ICT to phase out and retire older systems, introduce new systems fit for the modern workplace and streamline working processes with automated tools.

ICT within the Service is currently undergoing rapid change with some interesting projects being rolled out over the coming years. Some of these projects will create major positive change within the organisation and ICT will be at the heart of them, so it is a great opportunity for someone passionate and enthusiastic about ICT and the potential to drive organisational change and development.  

 

The Service

The Mid and West Wales service area covers 12,000km of Wales. With 58 stations from Caldey Island in the South West of Wales up to Llanfyllin in the North East of Wales. Delivering ICT to these areas may require some extensive travel and stays away from home for periods of time during the working week. A full driving licence is therefore essential as well as having your own vehicle (although pool cars are available for most travel).

 

You will be rewarded with an exciting and challenging, great benefits including the possibility of quick progression through the pay grade, generous leave allowance as well as bank holidays, a highly desirable pension scheme, national discount scheme. Most of all you would be working for a well-respected organisation, a great team – both in ICT and the wider organisation, and the knowledge that the work you do will help save lives and help communities across Wales.
