Job Details

Project Manager with strong experience of people and organisational change required by dynamic Public Sector organisation in Essex for an initial 12 Month Fixed Term Contract.

In this exciting role you will deliver a number of change and transformation projects and will play a key role in shaping the future landscape and strategy within this organisation.

You will be responsible for ensuring change projects are managed to realise business benefits and that stakeholders (up to senior director level) are engaged and informed of on-going developments. You will plan, design and manage projects in line with Prince2, monitor progress and resolve issues. Working as part of a talented project team and managing project resources you will ensure your allocated projects are completed in line with the organisation's guidelines, policies and procedures and will manage risks.

You will have to juggle and prioritise multiple projects and some of these will implement new systems, new policies and change ways of working. Previous experience of delivering people and organisational change type projects is therefore needed and you will have a track record of managing the full project lifecycle, ensuring delivery on time and within budget.

To be considered you must:

• Be a strong, proactive project manager who is able to hit the ground running and deliver with minimal supervision

• Have previous experience of people and organisational change/transformation projects

• Be highly organised, adaptable and be able to prioritise

• Have strong awareness of Prince2 (a certification is not essential but would be a bonus)

• Possess excellent communications skills and be confident working with senior level stakeholders

Public sector experience would be advantageous but is not essential. Essentially, you will need to be a good all-rounder who can cope with carrying a number of change activities.

Initially a 12 month fixed term contract, due to the strategic nature of this role there is a possibility of extension.

This role is based at this organisation's headquarters in Essex within an easy commute of Chelmsford, Colchester and Braintree with a salary of £40k-£47k on offer plus excellent public sector pension and other benefits.

If you're a Change Project Manager who has worked on people and organisational change projects and want to work in an environment where this is lots of transformation activity happening then apply ASAP. Immediate start available.
