Are you an enthusiastic and skilled project manager?

Do you have excellent communication and influencing skills?

Would you like to join IT during an exciting and challenging period of growth in project delivery?

We are looking for a Project Manager to join the IT Programme Management Office, which is responsible for overseeing delivery of a diverse portfolio of IT projects for one of the biggest Universities in the UK.

As a Project Manager, you will be allocated a mixed caseload of IT projects across the entire lifecycle from initiation through to closure so you will need excellent organisational skills and be able to effectively manage your own work and drive the successful delivery of all your projects. You will also be skilled at working with a diverse range of stakeholders, and be able to effectively listen to project stakeholders working with delivery managers and technical teams to ensure projects are delivered effectively and efficiently.

You will be able to effectively present information in a range of formats, including budgetary and financial information, demonstrating a high level of attention to detail and be experienced in working with a structured or formalised project management methodology e.g. Prince 2, PMQ or Agile.

You will initially work on The Corporate Processes & Systems (CPS) transformational change programme. CPS will improve the processes, systems, data and ways of working across Finance, Human Resources, Procurement and Strategy and Planning, that support both the delivery of Corporate Services and the planning of the University. The vision is to create a University enabled by streamlined and consistent processes and robust and insightful data, with clear ownership and control, supported by modern and future-proofed technology that is understood and enjoyed by its users. Our ambition is to reduce the time that academic and professional services staff spend on transactional activity and the manual preparation of plans, forecasts and reporting, which will allow a stronger focus on academic and service delivery, business partnering and other value-adding activity.
