About this role

Our Programme & Project Management teams are responsible for providing professional services to some of our most complex customer contracts within our business. Through effective governance, we help reduce risk, improve the probability of successful delivery and - most importantly - improve customer satisfaction. 

As a Project Co-ordinator, you’ll support the delivery of a range of provision, migration or transition projects and programmes within the wider portfolio of work. You’ll be responsible for the planning and  delivery of work packages or small projects within a larger programme or project, either independently or under the direction of a more senior project manager. You’ll need to be highly organised so that you know what needs to be done and in what order. You’ll also develop stakeholder management skills; critical to keeping projects on track, as well as delighting our customers.  You’ll be identifying potential problems and working out how to fix them before they happen, as part of good practice in risk management. 

We’ll teach you how to become an expert in project management, starting with the basics and working up to more complex work over time. We’ll support your learning through buddying, job shadowing, formal training and through managing your own work packages and projects. You’ll learn how to deal with internal and external suppliers and customers, and how to address challenging situations.  It won’t just be about the technical skills though, we’ll help you to develop so that you can work professionally and independently, taking responsibility and initiative. 

This job is available in Business.
