The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £35,328 to £42,701 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

An opportunity exists for a proactive and versatile team player to join the IT Change and Project Delivery (ITCPD) team within the UCL Information Services Division (ISD).

This is an interesting and varied role for project professionals to provide support within the Project Support team and 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. Multitasking and juggling many different activities is very much part of the role.

The Project Support Officer role acts as a support to the allocated Project Team(s). Tasks include; putting together Project and Stage Plans; servicing Project Meetings/Workshops; writing minutes and project documentation; supporting the Project Lifecycle; tracking Project Risks and Actions for follow up; communicating with Stakeholders; tracking of Finance/Budget; and creating and maintaining project data repositories.

They may also be involved in supporting business change, business analysis and portfolio management.

We are committed to providing development opportunities that will stand the successful candidate in good stead for progression within the department and for their future career.

The successful candidates will have a driven and tenacious approach to work.  They will use their excellent communication skills to build strong working relationships across ISD and the wider university and will take pride in providing reliable and quality support for others.

The successful candidate will be highly organised and self-motivated with excellent communication skills, a good eye for detail and strong administrative experience. Successful candidates will have a high level of competence with Microsoft Office and other basic software.

It is essential that the candidates have the ability to multitask and work well under pressure by using their organisational skills.

The role requires the post holder to work independently and use their initiative to ensure Project Support Management, Project Managers and Senior Project Delivery Services are supported.

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

This post is a long-term opportunity with a finite funded contract. The post relies on continued availability of project funding which is confirmed on an annual basis. It is expected that the funding for these posts will continue for a significant period of time.  In the event that capital funding for this post ceases then at least 3 months’ notice will be given.
