Project Support Officer

University College London - IT Change and Project Delivery

(2 posts) 

UCL - Information Services Division

The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £34,056 to £41,163 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

Opportunities exist for two proactive and versatile team players to join the IT Change and Project Delivery (ITCPD) team within the UCL Information Services Division (ISD).

These are interesting and varied roles for project support professionals to work on multiple IT related projects and with stakeholders across the University. Project Support Officers are required to undertake a wide range of different activities and may work on more than one project at any given time and so multitasking and juggling many different project activities is very much part of the role.

The Project Support Officer role includes: event management, maintenance of data using intermediate/advanced excel skills including use of pivot tables, servicing of project boards, assisting with project documentation and project communications, responding to and fielding general project enquiries and maintaining project data repositories such as shared drives and SharePoint.

The successful candidates will have strong stakeholder management experience and a driven and tenacious approach to work. They will use their excellent communication skills (oral and written) to build strong working relationships across ISD and the wider university.

It is essential that the candidates have the ability to multitask and work well under pressure by using their exceptional planning and organisational skills. The role requires the post holder to work independently and use their initiative to ensure Project Managers are supported.

Previous experience of providing support to projects is essential. PRINCE2 (or equivalent), SharePoint experience and knowledge of the higher education sector are desirable.
