WMG is looking to recruit an experienced Project Manager, to provide effective project management for projects within our High Value Manufacturing Catapult (HVMC) centre and for other WMG related R&D projects. Established by Innovate UK, here to bridge the gap between fundamental research and commercial reality, the Catapult centres help to turn great ideas into reality through access to world-class Research & Development facilities and expertise that would otherwise be out of reach for many businesses in the UK.
Your role will be responsible for ensuring that projects run smoothly and to a high standard, fulfilling all requirements of the collaborating companies and funding bodies, leading to high quality research outputs and industrial impact. As part of WMG’s Project Management Organisation, you will play a key role in co-ordinating a suite of HVMC funded projects within the themes of digital technologies, advanced manufacturing and materials. You will support the delivery of individual projects, preparation and completion of project documentation and reports as well as contributing to the continuous development of the PMO. You will support projects through their lifecycle, from initial planning, through delivery, to exploitation.
You will have experience of working in a relevant R&D or industrial environment, along with an excellent standard of written and spoken English including a demonstrated ability to prepare written reports and application documents.
In return we will provide a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus bank holidays and Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.
At WMG we are committed to supporting staff to achieve their potential. We currently hold the Athena SWAN Silver Award, and the University of Warwick holds an Institutional Silver Award: a national initiative that recognizes the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression, and success for all in academia. We are supportive of staff with caring responsibilities including a generous maternity/paternity/adoption/parental leave policy, and onsite childcare facilities. We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
