Project Delivery Manager (10332)

Rosalind Franklin Institute

The Rosalind Franklin Institute is a national interdisciplinary research centre, funded by the UK government through UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). We are dedicated to creating new disruptive technologies which will allow us to see the biological world in new ways - from picometre-scale atoms to centimetre-scale tumours. These technological advances will speed up the discovery of new medicines, help find new diagnostics and contribute to a deeper understanding of human health and disease.

The Franklin operates from a purpose-built research facility on the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus near Didcot, a unique community of government, academia and industry working to accelerate progress on key issues. The 700-acre campus is steeped in world-firsts, and technology and research are at the heart of everything Harwell does.

Our building houses both specialist laboratories, research scientists and operational staff within a state-of-the art facility designed to inspire our people in their work and create a welcoming hub for our collaborations and visitors. Our research values of adventure, novelty, engagement, and utility are drawn on and exemplified by the Franklin team through our collaborations with universities and industrial partners, both in the UK and internationally.

The Role

As we expand our activities, we are looking to appoint an experienced Project Manager to provide professional and organisational support for the coordination and delivery of a broad range of institute projects in collaboration with colleagues and stakeholders.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly collaborative, vibrant, and professional research institute devoted to developing tomorrow’s healthcare innovations. As the Project Delivery Manager, you will support the planning, execution, and evaluation of institute-wide projects, ensuring effective communication channels with stakeholders, project sponsors and project teams. Monitoring and coordinating progress will be key, providing regular updates and proactive risk strategies and deviations to plan and budget, and administering key processes across a portfolio of projects.

This is a high-profile role that will have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to the implementation of our strategic goals - to deliver world class science, build a legacy to be proud of, and secure our future success.

We are looking for someone with excellent organisational, communication and negotiating skills, who is committed, and results driven.
