Do you thrive working in collaborative and forward thinking environments? Do you enjoy working with technology and looking for better ways to do things? 

We have an excellent opportunity for a Project Manager to join our dynamic team and play an integral role in shaping and optimising the Faculty’s undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes provision, providing operational management and professional leadership to the team. Working collaboratively with the Programmes Manager, you will take responsibility for the development, revision and improvement of programme-related administrative processes and procedures across the Faculty, ensuring that these processes are efficient, effective and adapt to changing circumstances.    

This role provides exciting opportunities to support Faculty-wide projects, including enhancements to the student experience, which will support our ambitious plans for further innovating and growing our taught provision, at a time of postgraduate growth.

Another key project is optimising our use of Office365 tools to generate efficiencies and consistency of practice. Ideally we are looking for someone who has experience of using/developing PowerApps, as this would be hugely beneficial to our business although we would be happy to provide PowerApps training.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who embraces technology, enjoys working on their own initiative and building strong relationships and developing and motivating others. 

As a Faculty, we embrace change and provide a supportive environment in which to develop and grow, offering ongoing professional development opportunities with a strong belief in the value of investing in our people and teams. We organise annual Faculty Away days, social events such as book and craft club and are always interested in new ideas. We also love to support our local community and charities through various fundraising events.
