Do you thrive on working across a broad portfolio of projects in a complex environment? Are you comfortable analysing and presenting project reporting data? Would you like the chance to support Executive decision-making for projects and programmes? If so, this is an exciting opportunity for you to make a real difference to the management of strategic change initiatives in a world-class organisation.

You will join a small influential team playing a pivotal role in supporting senior leaders across the university in the implementation and delivery of strategic initiatives through providing specialist Portfolio Office services.  

In this role, you will monitor and analyse the performance of the University’s strategic change portfolio. You will have the opportunity to deliver and evolve the portfolio office’s data collection processes and reporting content. There is a varied stakeholder base, who require orientation around project data and management information, and so your ability to articulate and convey your findings is essential.

You will need an ability to balance priorities, deal with complex academic and financial information, and work consultatively with others in order to succeed. This role sits alongside the Portfolio Officer for Systems Development to drive the quality of project data reported to the University’s senior team members. Working with limited supervision, the ability to organise and work to deadlines will be critical to the success of the role.
