About the Role
This role includes both project management and business analysis responsibilities although the emphasis will be on project management.
You’ll have a solid background in IT project management and able to demonstrate competencies in business analysis and process improvement. If you can also add strong stakeholder management skills then you could be the person we’re looking for.
The successful candidate will help Cranfield drive transformation in our IT and the business processes that support our research, student experience, education delivery and administration.
You’ll have project management experience in a structured environment and have a good appreciation of Agile and Lean best practice. You’ll also have some expertise in business analysis techniques such as ‘as is’ and ‘to be’ and swimlanes. Specific project experience of CRM, intranet, research systems and student information systems (e.g., SITS) would be welcome.
You’ll be tenacious, have excellent communication skills and demonstrate a flexible, enthusiastic, and positive attitude. It’s likely you will have gained Agile, Prince 2 and / or business analysis qualifications.
