The UCL Department of Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering (CEGE) is a multidisciplinary department with a long tradition of excellence in teaching and research. The UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC) requires a highly skilled programme manager with substantial management experience to provide skilled operational support to the Coordination Node (CN) Executive. The post holder will play a key role in the successful delivery of the initial CN grant, including coordinating interventions, building cooperation between the portfolio’s thirteen partner Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and the overall management of their interdependencies. This unique opportunity offers the post holder a unique, complex and inspiring environment in which to apply their skills to effect genuine coordination and collaboration across the UKCRIC community (or ‘Strands’ – the CN, DAFNI, Urban Observatories, Test Facilities) and the associated research programmes to ensure they achieve more than the sum of their parts. The appointment is available immediately and is funded in the first instance until 31 March 2021.

The successful candidate will have experience of managing large programmes across multiple stakeholders and geographies, experience working with a large group of diverse stakeholders – particularly working with local / regional / national government, funding councils, commercial organisations and the third sector, and previous experience of project management, planning, resourcing and reporting, including the ability to manage and report on multiple strands of activity. Experience in the development of research and impact work plans to attract significant and sustained financing, and experience of developing effective relationships with external agencies and internal staff to influence the direction of strategy, is also essential. A postgraduate degree in management, infrastructure, cities and society, public policy, innovation, or similar (or evidently related field), and knowledge of systems thinking research and practice, would be an advantage.
