Job Location: Flexible
London - £51,935 to £62,321
National - £47,885 to £57,463
36 hours per week - flexible working supported
Are you an experienced Project Management Office Manager?
Do you have experience of building a high performing PMO leading on the prioritisation, coordination and management of a broad range of corporate projects?
If so then we have an exciting opportunity for you to join the UKs largest Housing Association.
Reporting to the Head of Corporate Projects and working closely with the Senior Project Manager, you'll provide dedicated PMO services to the Corporate Services Directorate to enable the delivery of the Corporate Projects change portfolio.
You'll oversee a portfolio of service reviews, continuous improvement, strategic and business change projects (all non-technology), managing a high performing team of Project Coordinators and Business Analysts, ensuring projects are delivered to the required quality, on time and within budget. You'll act as first line assurance, bringing an independent voice on project delivery quality, defining project health check criteria and processes and embedding these across the team.
This is a superb opportunity to join a progressive team within an ambitious and rapidly evolving organisation. Initial priorities within the role will include:
Working with the Senior Project Manager and wider team to design a flexible governance framework, ensuring it is fit for purpose and scaleable to the breath of projects within the teams responsibilities
Embedding the approach to the people and assurance strategy project boards, providing assurance of our ability to deliver our strategies through the tracking of the critical path and management of programme risks/issues and dependencies
Defining approach and leading all resource scheduling for the team
Developing a skills matrix and development approach for the whole team
Due to the nature of the role, you must possess a proven understanding of the fundamentals that make up a PMO, including overall governance, quality assurance, reporting, risk management and resource tracking. You'll therefore have demonstrable experience working as a manager or similar in a PMO delivering complex multi-dimensional projects in a large organisation, managing risks, issues and dependencies within a complex programme.
If you're someone with excellent communication skills, a persuasive presenter and are capable of using these skills to influence senior stakeholders and customers, then we want to hear from you.
