Help us reimagine the civic University for the next century

The University of Bristol is working with the City Council, local communities, and industry to develop a new £300 million campus in the Enterprise Zone at Temple Quarter. With a focus on digital technologies and their application this exciting programme will bring immense benefits to the city of Bristol and beyond and will bring together engineers, social scientists, and industry partners. The University is committed to using the Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus (TQEC) to reimagine what it means to be a civic university for the next century, by ensuring the new campus delivers life changing opportunities to communities, organisations and individuals across the city of Bristol.

We are delighted to offer the exciting and challenging fixed-term role of Deputy Programme Director and Head of Programme Management Office, which will be crucial to the successful delivery of our flagship Temple Quarter second campus growth programme.

The role we are looking to fill will be part of the Temple Quarter Programme Management team and will work with the Programme Director to oversee sub-programmes and cross cutting workstreams that make up the delivery of the Temple Quarter Programme. This is a leadership role, requiring the Deputy Programme Director to champion and represent the programme with internal and external stakeholders, and to deputise for the Programme Director as required.

Naturally, you will be highly knowledgeable in all aspects of PMO methods and MSP (or equivalent) methodology and you will know when and how to adapt methodology to suit the programme and its key stakeholders. You will have the proven ability to use innovation and creativity to solve complex problems to ensure the successful delivery of the programme's objectives.

Excellent communication and interpersonal skills with an ability to work and communicate well with a wide range of staff, including senior academic colleagues and external stakeholders, will be absolutely key to your success. You will be responsible for reporting on plans and progress to the TQEC main Programme Board and to TQEC Sub-Programme Boards and so will also be able to collate, analyse and report on complex data for a wide range of audiences.
