IT Portfolio - iSolutions
The University’s IT Service, iSolutions, are looking for the right people to deliver projects that change how the University uses IT to work. We need experienced and dynamic Senior Project Managers to deliver our IT projects. If that’s you, then we would love to hear from you.
We deliver a full range of IT services to all staff and students and this role will join our IT Portfolio community of Project Managers and Business Analysts. We run a wide range of projects and programmes to improve our current services and transform the staff and student experience to a diverse community of 20,000+ students and over 5,500 University staff.
Along with significant Project Management experience, including end-to-end delivery of projects with significant business change, you may also have experience of projects requiring technical integration, upgrades and/or an element of data migration. Our Senior Project Managers engage with a range of stakeholders across the University and this role would suit someone who enjoys collaborating across the organisation. Experience of working with student systems would be a bonus.
You will have a skill level (including experience and other qualifications) equivalent to a post-graduate degree. A PRINCE2 Practitioner or equivalent agile or traditional project management qualification is also required.
Working at UoS
Our Strategic Plan – Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) builds on the ambition articulated in the University Strategy: “It matters that we act continually to ensure the University is supportive and inclusive of everyone”.
Our EDI mission is to create an inclusive university community, and our vision is that this is a community where, as an individual student or member of staff:
- You feel welcomed for who you are, and this is a place where you feel that you can influence the way we do things now and in the future
- You feel included and supported to reach your true potential
- You are intellectually stretched and challenged
- You value the diversity of the wider community and play your part in supporting the mission of inclusivity.
As part of our commitment to your well-being we offer an occupational pension scheme and generous holidays. Staff also have access to our state-of-the-art on-campus sports, arts, and culture facilities, a full programme of events, and access to a number of university employee-discount schemes.
Work-life balance is important to us and this is reflected in our generous maternity policy and childcare facilities; employees are also able to participate in the Childcare Voucher Scheme. Our staff may wish to have working patterns that fit in with their caring responsibilities, so we invite requests to undertake this role on a part-time or a flexible working basis. We also welcome applicants who have had career breaks for reasons including maternity, paternity or adoption leave, disability, or illness.
