This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced and highly skilled project manager to join the University of Southampton.

Our people are at the heart of everything we do which is reflected in the University Strategy. One key element of our People Strategic Plan is our commitment to reducing the use of casual roles and fixed term contracts to provide more security of work and an excellent staff experience.

  • Deliver these projects through engagement with senior stakeholders using the University’s project delivery approaches.
  • Coordinate, manage and motivate project teams working in a matrix environment.
  • Track and monitor progress to report on project status using various methodologies, including board level reports, summaries, presentations, and verbal updates.

About you

You will be a proactive problem solver who can manage multiple priorities to ensure that work is delivered on time and to the required standards and budget. You will be an engaged team member, with a practical approach who is able to work independently and to manage conflicting priorities.
