The Parliamentary Digital Service (PDS) works with the House of Commons, the House of Lords, and Parliament staff on their IT and digital needs.
At the Parliamentary Digital Service, we're transforming the way Parliament does digital. We're responsible for the digital output of all parliamentary services. We think it's important that everyone can access and understand what's going on in Parliament. Our goal is to bring together the public, Parliament Members, and Parliamentary staff to inform, engage, support, and communicate through one, unified digital core - PDS.
As an Identity and Access Management Analyst you'll be an essential link in the chain between Users, Service Owners and Service Providers. You'll deal with requests for support and work to resolve performance and failure issues by making system modifications, creating work-around enhancements, reconfiguring systems and training users. In addition ensure that any documentation is maintained relating to work arounds and modifications.
This is an ideal development role for a systems engineer with a passion for Identity and an enthusiasm for problem-solving. Exposure to PowerShell (including script automation) in areas such as Active Directory and Microsoft server technologies would be helpful. However, proven technical aptitude and a willingness to progress are more important.
Skills such as good communication, teamwork and organisation will help you take full advantage of the opportunities on offer in this high-profile IT organisation that is pushing forward the boundaries of digital development.
