Detail information about job Programme Manager - Student Lifecycle Project. Terms and conditions vacancy
Full time/Fixed-term for 3 years
The University of Sheffield is a remarkable place to work. Taking the lead on a major change project, you will relish the challenge of making our university an even more remarkable place to study. The Student Lifecycle Project will transform the way we deliver services to our students. Enabling service re-design and development through innovative IT, the project will improve processes and enhance experiences. As you drive it forward, you will engage with a host of different communities and groups within the university.
As Programme Manager, we will look to you to plan, design and deliver this institution-wide programme. Calling on every facet of your skillset, you will lead on everything from programme governance and reporting, to inter-project dependency and interface management, to risk management. We will rely on you to ensure that new products and services are delivered on time, in budget and to the highest standards of quality. As well as leading, developing and motivating high-performing project teams, you will oversee the contributions of third parties including technology suppliers. Proactively influencing stakeholders and championing collaboration, you will be instrumental to the project’s success and to the smooth adoption of changes.
To be equal to the challenge, you will need proven experience of change management and delivering projects in an IT context. Ideally, you will have done this within large and complex organisations and can demonstrate an understanding of the Higher Education sector, though neither is essential. You will certainly bring to the role all the expertise and credibility necessary to advise a host of teams on these projects, forge strong relationships with colleagues and deal authoritatively with external organisations. The confidence, resilience and ability to challenge working practices, and to negotiate, manage and deliver on multiple competing priorities will be key to your success. In return, you will enjoy impressive rewards.
You will be working in one of the UK’s best not-for-profit places to work, according to the Sunday Times’ ranking of Britain’s happiest and most motivated workforces. You will have access to the excellent facilities, benefits and development opportunities available to our staff and you can read more about these at: http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/jobs
