The internal role title for this requirement is Legacy Contract Exit Manager.
We are looking for a Programme Manager / Senior Project Manager / Exit Manager.
Whilst we will accept candidates from anywhere in the UK, twice weekly visits to London will be required.
The current incumbent is due to leave PTTP at the end of July and a hand over is required.


The Prison Technology Transformation Programme (PTTP) is rolling out a new technology service across HMPPS, replacing the existing Quantum service deployed across 150 sites, to c50,000 users, working on c40,000 devices.

This is an exceptional opportunity to make a real difference in a major Programme which sits within the Government Major Projects Portfolio (GMPP). This is a key role, essential to the successful delivery of PTTP and not a learning and development type role; the successful applicant would be expected to hit the ground running. Given the deadlines involved, preference will be given individuals who can be released from their current role quickly.

The Contract Exit Lifecycle has five clear exit stages. The current incumbent, with which there will be a comprehensive hand over, is in the process of completing stages 1 and 2. Stage 3 is being delivered by the core PTTP programme. The Legacy Contract Exit Manager role covers stages 4 & 5; the key deliverable is to bring the legacy contract exit through to completion.

1. Strategy: Assess the optimal phasing of exit by service line and agree approach; strategic alignment of as-is to PTTP replacement services; specific asks of current 3rd party supplier.
2. Planning: Finalise and agree exit plan with 3rd party supplier that integrates with MoJ PTTP plans.
3. Delivery: Complete design, build & test of replacement solutions; migrate data and users & deliver associated exit plan activities.
4. Decommission: Decommission / reuse / recycle assets; securely destroy data & deliver exit plan activities
5. Exit Contract: Close-out commercial activities to get to final contract exit
