Senior Project Manager/Project Manager
The Business Support & Change Team manages and delivers transformational change associated with the education offer at King’s, and in the services and processes that support our students. In support of the Education Strategy, it provides programme and project support across a variety of activities and works closely with colleagues in a range of central services and faculties to ensure developments are fit for purpose and student-centred. We aim to deliver excellent student and staff experience whilst supporting the university’s growth in a financially sustainable way, and do so by simplifying the way we do things, enabling ourselves to work together better and investing in our people and systems.
About the role
We are seeking to appoint three additional roles in the team at Senior Project Manager/Project Manager level to lead projects within the Education and Students Transformation (EAST) portfolio, to deliver on the aims of Vision 2029 and the Education Strategy. Please review the job descriptions for both the Senior Project Manager and Project Manager roles and apply for the position that you feel best meets your skills set and experience.
As Senior Project Manager, you will be responsible for the day-to-day running of multiple large and complex projects to deliver to the needs of the organisation, within set budgets, timescales and quality. As Project Manager, you will be responsible for the day-to-day running of small-medium projects and/or supporting the delivery of more significant or complex projects. You will build relationships across a wide stakeholder community, engaging with colleagues across Professional Services and faculties and with external partners.
The portfolio includes a wide range of projects and you will be required to deliver across all stages of the project lifecycle, as well as supporting broader strategic developments, benefits realisation and change management approaches. The team also contributes to the transformation agenda across the university, encouraging best practice and common standards.
This is an exciting time to join the team: a significant expansion of our transformation agenda is being initiated to improve the student experience, with changes underway or planned across systems, processes, people, data and policies. Excellent progress has been made on an ambitious Education Strategy, characterised by innovation, flexibility and enrichment. We are now seeking creative, adaptable transformation specialists to help us accelerate the operationalisation of planned strategic changes and transformation of our services to deliver a 21st century student experience.
We encourage applications from candidates who have experience from both within and outside of the Higher Education sector where they can demonstrate the skills needed to succeed in this role.
