These projects represent major investments by the University and are typically large scale and highly complex, involving multiple stakeholders and interdependencies across the institution.

  • Additionally, you will maintain strong stakeholder engagement across the University working collaboratively to ensure the delivery of projects, acting as a key management point of contact.

This post is a full-time (37 hours per week) position on a two-year fixed-term contract, offering flexible, hybrid working options.

About you:
The postholder should have: 

  • Experience of managing the delivery of complex projects which involve coordinating with stakeholders across an organisation.
  • Demonstrable knowledge of project management methodologies and best practice including critical elements of planning, delivery and closure.
  • Excellent interpersonal and negotiation skills with the ability to influence and develop relationships and networks to deliver key strategic aims and objectives.

How to apply:

  • Please submit your CV and covering letter which addresses how you meet the Person Specification (available on the university's website, accessed by the 'Apply' button) via our application portal. NOTE: CVs alone will not be considered. 
  • Shortlisting is carried out based on your covering letter and you should be clear about how you meet each of the Person Specification criteria, detailed in the Job Description, and give evidence of your experience.
