Are you a Project Administrator / Coordinator? Do you want to play a key role in delivering projects for the British Heart Foundation (BHF), one of the UK's biggest charities?
We've embarked on a period of sizeable change, with a variety of key programmes and projects being delivered; these include the implementation of a new HR system, a Smarter Working project to overhaul our working practices, a rollout of Office365 as well as large scale improvement programmes of work for our retail estate.
Your job will be to support a change portfolio within IT by coordinating project activities. This will include managing schedules, arranging assignments and working closing with the wider team of Project Managers and communicating progress to all team members.
You'll also lead on preparing action and tracking plans so will be responsible for updating and ensuring all project documentation is up to date.
You'll be able to demonstrate a track record of working in programme or project support and have a key understanding of project delivery approaches and concepts.
With experience of working with a wide variety of internal and external stakeholders (including senior management) you'll have the ability to develop strong working relationships with the team and wider stakeholders involved in key projects and programmes.
With hands-on experience with document and schedule management you'll also adopt a positive, 'can-do' attitude and have a flexible approach to work.
You'll also need exceptional organisational skills along with high-quality programme and project support skills; you'll ideally have PRINCE2 Foundation training or have relevant experience in a large, national organisation setting, but this is not essential.
This is an exciting opportunity for anyone looking to develop a career in project and programme support in a PMO setting.
When you work at the British Heart Foundation, you become a part of medical history. Part of a world leading organisation that has played a role in decades of life saving breakthroughs, from heart transplants and pacemakers to stents and clot busting drugs. And we're not about to stop any time soon. We are here to beat heartbreak forever. To stop heart and circulatory diseases devastating families.
And if you want to help us get there sooner, you could be the Project Administrator we need.
