Do you want to work for a world class organisation, who will support your professional and technical development, whilst recognising and enabling you to meet your commitments outside of the workplace? 

We are looking for an IT Programme Manager to enhance our Project Delivery team. If you thrive working in a complex and varied environment where your ability to navigate strategic risks and issues are as developed as your skills in IT Programme delivery, and where you want to support the delivery of technical excellence, this is an exciting opportunity for you to make a real difference in a world class organisation who cares about your professional and personal wellbeing.

Reporting to the IT Director and working with members of the University Executive Group, you will play a pivotal role in ensuring IT delivers on the University’s strategic aims and objectives. You will be accountable for the delivery of a significant improvement to our Student Education and Corporate processes and services, through the implementation of world-class technology solutions. You will have the ability to influence and balance strategic priorities, successfully shape and align highly complex programmes of change through strength of leadership and partnership across executive University stakeholders.
