Programme Management Office (PMO) Manager

Do you thrive on working in a complex environment? Do you have experience of the operation and development of project, programme and portfolio offices? If so, this is an exciting opportunity for you to make a real difference to the management of strategic change initiatives in a world-class organisation.

The University of Leeds has a new and ambitious strategic plan. You will join a small influential team playing a pivotal role in supporting senior leaders across the university in the implementation and delivery of the plan through providing specialist PMO services.  
In this role, you will apply your knowledge of PMO activities for the benefit of the University’s strategic initiatives. You will have the opportunity to manage and evolve the PMO’s centre of excellence and assurance processes. There is a varied stakeholder base, who require orientation around project processes and so your ability to constructively coach and influence are essential.

You will need an ability to balance priorities, deal with complex academic and financial information, and work consultatively with others in order to succeed. Working with limited supervision, the ability to organise and work to key milestones will be critical to the success of the role.
