About the role
We are looking for a highly skilled and experienced Programme Manager to play a key role at the heart of the Global Security Programme: Contested Cross-border Spaces, Illicit Flows, and Order in the Contemporary World, funded by the Minerva Research Initiative and led by Academic Director, Dr Annette Idler.
This appointment offers a unique opportunity to take on significant operational responsibilities in a new interdisciplinary project team that studies the dynamic interactions of the political, economic, and social dimensions of global security: global order, transnational supply chains and local experiences of instability.
This is a key and senior role in this programme. The Programme Manager has oversight of the overall programme timelines, appropriate sequencing of priorities, and ensures project deliverables and outputs are planned and delivered effectively and on time, in line with financial regulations and budget requirements, and in close coordination with the collaborating institutions. The role will be fast paced, technically demanding, and will entail working with partners in Oxford and around the world.
Whilst this role is a grade 8 position, we are willing to consider candidates with potential but less demonstrable experience who are seeking a development opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at grade 7 with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly. This would be discussed with applicants at interview/ appointment where appropriate.
You will have outstanding strategic, operational, and financial skills – and will be used to managing complex projects. You will have high levels of accuracy and attention to detail when inputting data and providing information. High level of numeracy, and confidence dealing with financial data; a systematic, thorough, and well-organised approach to work with evidence of the ability to work to deadlines with minimal supervision; a flexible can-do approach, self-motivation, and resilience with evidence of the ability to adapt to the changing needs and priorities in the team; and strong problem-solving skills.
You will be required to upload a supporting statement, your CV, and the details of two referees as part of your online application.
The closing date for applications is 12:00 noon (UK time) on Monday 9 October 2023.
Interviews will be held virtually during week commencing 23 October 2023.
