Are you interested in working for a world top 100 University?

Are you passionate about helping teams deliver projects through to completion?

We have an exciting opportunity for you to work collaboratively to deliver a high-profile innovation-focused national research facility. You must be a forward-thinking individual with a passion for project management, looking to use a combination of your skills to successfully initiate, collaborate and see this project through from initial stages to completion.

Building on the success of the existing Centre, The Translational Energy Research Centre is an enhanced and new facility positioned to support low carbon technology projects and their suppliers in the UK and across the globe as they innovate to resolve issues that currently lead to large and costly design margins. The Centre provides a platform for users to prove, test, develop, optimise and up-scale their ideas and developments on a cost-effective basis before investing in commercial-scale testing or production, addressing demand for additional capacity, greater flexibility of operation, and enhanced capabilities.

In this varied and dynamic role as the Project Manager, you will have a good first degree in a relevant subject (or equivalent experience) and possess a relevant postgraduate qualification (or equivalent experience). You will also possess substantial experience of project management, financial procurement processes and an understanding of EU tender regulations. A project management methodology qualification, for example, PRINCE2 Practitioner or MSP Practitioner would be an advantage. The role of the Project Manager and the Translational Energy Research Centre are both part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Reporting to the Head of University Energy-2050, Professor Pourkashanian, and working closely with the well-connected Project team, you will play a key role and be the focal point to co-ordinate academic, professional services and technical staff to define the equipment specification, oversee procurement processes and provide administrative and project planning support for the installation and commissioning of the equipment and its eventual transition to the new building.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
