Project Manager

University College London - Information Services Division

This is an exciting opportunity for proactive and versatile team players to join the Project Delivery Services team within the UCL Information Services Division (ISD) for 24 Months. Project Delivery Services are responsible for the delivery of a portfolio of IT infrastructure, IT applications and related projects across the University covering Education, Digital Transformation, Research IT and professional services customers throughout the university and beyond.

The role is for IT project management professionals with exposure to multiple IT related projects and stakeholders, ideally with experience of projects that transform learning and teaching spaces. Project Managers will draw upon their experience in successful project delivery, enabling them to be responsible for effectively managing multiple concurrent projects. They will need to be adaptable, proficient in multi tasking and comfortable juggling a heavy workload with frequently changing priorities while retaining a strong customer focus.

The successful candidates will have strong stakeholder management experience and a pragmatic delivery focus with demonstrable skills in overcoming obstacles and avoiding diversions. Specific specialist IT expertise is not essential but the ability to communicate effectively with technology specialists and non technical subject matter experts, to adapt to a range of IT related projects and to cope with surprises are all required. Assigned projects are likely to be a mix of new starts and already in-flight projects, hence versatility is a key requirement.

A good understanding of generic project management disciplines, excellent planning skills, strong change control experience and proven experience of finishing projects are all essential. Candidates will need to demonstrate effective project team management skills across all IT and related disciplines alongside the ability to manage team members from the customer base.

PRINCE2 practitioner level is desirable.
