Are you experienced in managing projects or changes to your area? Are you looking to develop your career as a Project Manager? Can you work confidently and assertively with a range of stakeholders, using coaching, negotiating and influencing skills to achieve successful outcomes? Are you a flexible and creative problem solver? Do you prepare outputs of the highest quality?

The University has a strategic portfolio aimed at delivering step change improvements across all range of activities, managing and embedding this level of change is critical to the effective delivery of the vision. Working across the range of this portfolio, the Business Change Team is tasked with leading and managing successful change, supported by the Delivering Results framework and methodology.

Working on a key strategic programme focussed on delivering streamlined and consistent Universities processes and systems, the Project Manager will report to a Lead Programme Manager, or nominated deputy, and will play a key role in shaping projects and managing their implementation at the various stages of the lifecycle. Juggling priorities, managing both stakeholder expectations and risks, you will be responsible for delivering projects through their lifecycles: planning; managing risks and issues; benefits tracking and providing accurate and articulate reports on their progress.

With relevant experience in applying best practice methodologies, you will have some understanding of the Higher Education (HE) environment and the ability to challenge accepted norms, as well as being comfortable working with limited supervision.
