Ambitious, inclusive and responsive to change, York St John University is an empowering place to learn and a rewarding place to work, located in the heart of the historic city of York. We are a Stonewall Top 100 employer and hold the Social Enterprise Gold Mark for Responsible Business Practice.

We have strategic growth plans and game changer projects focused on improving our areas of strength to further increase our reputation and embed our status as an anchor institution. All our plans are routed in our values and mission as a University which will ensure you work in a supportive environment where your talent will be nurtured so that you can accomplish your ambitions.

Our strategic growth plans and game changer projects articulate ambitious plans for our Strategy 2026, the year in which we celebrate 20 years. Achieving these targets for 2026 depends upon successful delivery of key programmes of work and game changer projects.

The successful candidate will be responsible for leading a range of strategic projects and process reviews across the University under the leadership of the Head of Strategic Projects and Change. As a member of the Strategic Projects and Change team you will work with colleagues to implement the project management framework across the organisation alongside being an ambassador for change. You will have experience of tailoring project management principles to the context in which you have worked alongside first-hand experience of business analysis. Your interpersonal skills will be exceptional and you will have expertise in negotiation, influence and persuasion. You'll work in a supportive team, but with the autonomy to bring your own ideas and experience.

Do you have a track record of successfully managing projects that involve cross-disciplinary teams? Do you enjoy a challenge and have the ability to enthuse others? Are you able to think strategically? Do you thrive when working collaboratively to tackle problems? If so, we want to hear from you.
