A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a dedicated Project Manager (80%FTE) to play a key role in the success of the project ‘That’s me!: Eliminating barriers to postgraduate research study in the West Midlands’ funded jointly by the Office for Students and Research England.

We are looking for a person who is experienced in project management as well as creative, engaging and tenacious in delivering initiatives in support of sustainable change. We want someone who aligns with our values on inclusivity, but also who supports and enables the pursuit of excellence in all that we do. Influencing and project management skills will be key to making a difference in driving forward this important agenda.

Project Manager Role and Responsibilities

You will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the project and ensuring that contractual requirements are met. They will need to:

  • Liaise, co-ordinate and expedite the activities of the collaborators with the University’s academic and research staff and relevant networks
  • Manage the project to budget and ensure the team delivers on all output targets.
  • Organise planned project activities such as workshops and sandpits
  • Organise outreach and engagement with the wider public
  • Promote the project via promotion campaigns, newsletters and maintenance of a dedicated website
  • Coordinate internal funding and recruitment processes
  • Develop and maintain regional partnerships to support all planned EDI activities.

You will already have Project Management experience, including end-to-end delivery of at least one project with significant change. Ideally, you will also have worked on delivering and embedding organisation-wide equality, diversity and inclusion projects. We need someone with a “can do” attitude to join our friendly and ambitious consortium. You will be able to build, manage and motivate diverse project teams in a matrix management environment.

Project Manager Requirements 

  • A commitment to inclusive practice
  • A highly professional approach and demonstrable strengths in project delivery and team leadership
  • Problem-solving skills and experience in conflict resolution
  • Excellent communication skills appropriate for a wide range of stakeholders.
  • Excellent organisational, budget-management, interpersonal and negotiation skills
  • The ability to plan own work activities in response to differing priorities and meeting deadlines.
  • Attention to detail and the ability to make decisions independently and manage a wide and varied range of work to multiple deadlines.                         
  • A collaborative attitude to building and maintaining professional relationships

The University’s vision is to transform the leadership and workforce of our Place through inclusive student success and world-class research. We strive to create an inclusive work environment where everybody feels they belong. We offer family-friendly, flexible working arrangements, with forums and inclusive facilities to support our staff. As part of our Athena SWAN and Race Equality Action charters, we are committed to recruiting a more diverse staff body that better reflects our student population. We particularly encourage applications from people who identify as Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic background. 

Date of Interview: 18th February 2022
