The Federated Research Computing Delivery Manager is a unique opportunity to take a lead role in the development and delivery of a programme of business and IT change at the University. “Research Computing” comprises a broad mix of resources including compute hardware, networking, storage, hosting services and the teams required to support and exploit these physical resources to help enable world-leading research at the University.
Embedded within IT Services, the Federated Research Computing Delivery Manager will engage with senior stakeholders from across the University to lead on the scoping, definition and delivery of a programme of activities that will deliver a shared, federated Research Computing capability to all four academic divisions of the University.
As an example of the range of activity; in the first year of this role, the post-holder will be expected to have delivered the programme governance structure, as well as performing the stakeholder consultation and analysis which will be critical in shaping the programme and delivering the business case for investment to deliver against the programme’s strategic objectives through year two onwards.
As such, applicants should be able to demonstrate a track record of taking a leading role in the definition and delivery of large/high impact IT and change management projects; this will be essential in delivering a coherent programme of infrastructure and business change activity required to bring about federation and to lead stakeholders through this endeavour.
