We are seeking a Programme Manager to establish a new pan-Wales project. Funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, the project aims to increase the capacity of the HE sector in Wales for partnerships, leadership and collaboration.

This is an exciting opportunity to develop a national scheme that will support researchers at all career stages, increase collaboration and partnership between universities, and celebrate Wales’ excellence in research.

The Programme Manager will take overall responsibility for the project’s success. Building on the Society’s existing reputation and stakeholder relationships, the post-holder will develop and organise many of the new activities in the project, supported by a Project Officer. Other activities will be developed and delivered by our Policy and Public Affairs Manager and Communications Officer. A strong team dynamic will therefore be essential to the project, with a shared commitment to monitoring, learning and evaluation.

The post-holder will ensure that the project complements the activities of universities in Wales and other relevant stakeholders. They will maintain a good relationship with our funder and will collate a report on the project’s outcomes. They will also work with the Chief Executive to develop and submit a funding proposal for further activities in 2022-23.

We want to appoint a candidate who can make this project a demonstrable success in its first year. Such success will enable us to extend the 1-year contract we are offering in the first instance.

We would welcome your application if you can demonstrate:

  • Significant experience in implementing projects
  • Knowledge of higher education and research in Wales
  • Success in working on shared goals with partners and stakeholders
  • Excellent skills in planning, management, organisation and communication
