Programme Office Manager - Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes, MK1 1
Imagine the challenges that come from managing high-value, highly complex government projects, often on the other side of the world. From putting in place a robust supply chain to managing project finances and quickly identifying and resolving issues; keeping everything in line with differing national regulations, often reacting quickly to the consequences of world events and ultimately taking responsibility for each project's success.
People join us because they want to work on projects with international significance. And they stay here because they never know what tomorrow will bring, or how their skills will be tested and developed next. It's far from easy, but you'll have access to some of the world's most advanced security, IT systems and construction technology, and to an extensive team of experts and specialists. Depending on your experience, you'll be managing projects valued at between 50k and 50m. And because we encourage our people to progress rapidly, there are always bigger and more complex career challenges on offer.
You'll need to bring sound experience of applying project management methodologies in a variety of contexts. In the case of more senior roles, this should include the design, development and implementation of complex security projects - ideally internationally.
A recognised qualification such as PRINCE2 or APMP is essential, as is a sound knowledge of financial controls and management right across a project's lifecycle. As both a strategic thinker and problem solver, you're adept at pre-empting and resolving issues, and making the right judgements under pressure. And your sharp customer focus means you know how to communicate complex programme and business information clearly and concisely. Above all, we'll want to see that you can deliver results on each and every project.
