The aim of the Electronic Document and Records Management System (EDRMS) project is to deliver a system to manage electronic documents and records created and used by Council officers. The system will support and assist officers across the Council in doing their job and collaborating with others. The system is about more than technology, or the tools officers will have at their disposal. It is about a fundamental change as to how officers work with documents.

As a key member of the EDRMS project team you will support a diverse range of project development and delivery activities. A collaborative and user centric approach will be required as you will work closely with the project manager, project team, end users, external consultants and other stakeholders across the organisation.

Educated to an HND level (or equivalent) you will have experience in supporting projects, schemes or initiatives. You will have excellent interpersonal skills including verbal and written communication skills and work well within a team. With advanced Information Communication and Technology skills you will be able to co-ordinate and prioritise tasks and workload. Applicants will be supported in this role with opportunities for development including one-to-one coaching and mentoring.
