Job Description

Historic England have created a fantastic new job opportunity for a Senior Project Manager to join us in managing the interface between English Heritage`s Fit for Growth Programme, Historic England and its suppliers.

This is a 12-month fixed term contact.

The role is based in Swindon, but we are open to hybrid or flexible working arrangements.

What you will be doing:

  • You will be responsible for managing the Fit for Growth programme which is a tightly interlinked series of technical projects delivering new infrastructure, including networks, telephony, Office 365 and asset refresh. This programme relies on a close interaction between Historic England, its suppliers, and English Heritage as the end customer, and you will be responsible for managing these relationships and ensuring all parties have a clear understanding of timelines, risks and costs.
  • You will work in close collaboration with project sponsors and stakeholders to ensure that the project scopes are well defined, achievable and ultimately realised.
  • You will be required on a day to day basis to ensure that your projects are effectively resourced and appropriately funded, taking responsibilities for the day to day management of your project teams and finances where applicable.
  • You will be responsible for monitoring, progression and flagging up any risks and issues, at all times utilising the agreed project governance and standards to support successful delivery.

Who we are looking for:

  • Proven experience in delivering a Network Infrastructure change project involving locations throughout England. The changes will include WAN, LAN, VPNs, Internet and ExpressRoute elements of the IT network infrastructure.
  • Significant experience of managing and working within projects involving teams drawn from different organisations and disciplines.
  • Able to manage and organise potentially conflicting priorities for both personal workloads and across project teams.
  • Experience of producing work of a high quality to challenging deadlines and budgets.
  • Proven experience in defining and implementing the technical build and rollout process for asset refresh with third party suppliers using modern, automating tools.

We are an equal opportunity employer which values diversity and inclusion. If you have a disability, we would be happy to discuss reasonable adjustments to the job with you. Having just won the Gold Award from MIND, we also recognize the importance of a healthy work -life balance. We offer a wide benefits package including a competitive pension scheme, a generous 28 days holiday, corporate discounts, free entry into English Heritage sites across the county and development opportunities to ensure you achieve your goals.

Provisional interview date: w/c 21st, 23rd and 24th June 2021
