Programme Management Office (PMO), iSolutions Department

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 Project Managers to deliver our IT projects. If that’s you, then we would love to hear from you.

You will join our PMO to manage the introduction of a new CRM solution, for a diverse community of 20,000+ students and 5,500+ University staff.

CRM is part of the University’s major strategic portfolio. These high-profile projects are designed to deliver easier ways of working and provide a more secure online environment by reducing the number and complexity of IT systems and increasing the coordination of data and information between faculties and professional services.

Working to deliver the CRM programme, you will drive change that will:

  • Enable the University to significantly improve the experience of students and applicants by providing them with facilities to communicate and engage with the University. 
  • Give staff access to modern tools to enable them to more effectively support students throughout their University experience.

You will already have significant Project Management experience, including end-to-end delivery of projects with significant business change. You will also have experience of projects requiring technical integration and/or an element of data migration. CRM experience would also be desirable.

You will have a highly professional approach and demonstrable strengths in stakeholder engagement, business change, and team leadership. You will demonstrate excellent communication skills appropriate for a wide range of internal stakeholders. Experience of managing technical deliveries from a supplier is a must. You will be able to build, manage and motivate diverse project teams in a matrix management environment. You will be professional, clear thinking under pressure and be a role model within the PMO.

You will also have a skill level and experience equivalent to a post-graduate degree and be a PRINCE2 Practitioner or have an equivalent professional qualification in Project Management. 

Desirable skills: Agile, Microsoft Dynamics
