Are you experienced in PMO management in a fast-paced environment? Do you enjoy juggling priorities? Do you have strong leadership and influencing skills?

The provision of digital learning is a core service provided by the University. With a dedicated team of more than 35 professionals, all experts in the fields of learning design and multimedia production, the Digital Learning Service (DLS) has a clear vision to empower the University and its partners to provide high quality, professional and educationally robust digital learning, in support of the University’s Strategic Plan.

Online learning provides an opportunity to share the University’s recognised excellence in learning and teaching with a wider international audience, making this an attractive feature for current and potential students, as well as staff and partner organisations.

If you thrive on working in a fast paced environment, where your ability to navigate political and organisational issues are as well developed as your skills in process management, this is an exciting opportunity for you to make a real difference in a world-class organisation.

You will apply your extensive knowledge of PMO activities for the benefit of the Digital Learning Service’s portfolio of client projects. You will have the opportunity to grow, shape and manage the PMO from its early beginnings, embedding processes that will ensure the Service’s projects have the intended impact across the organisation and beyond. The stakeholder base within the DLS will require orientation around project processes and so your ability to constructively coach and influence are essential.

You may be required to supplement the project management capability within the Digital Learning Service; for example working to kick off complex projects to ensure best practice is embedded from the outset, and leading by example.

You will need to develop an ability to balance priorities, deal with complex academic and financial information, together with the ability to work consultatively with others in order to succeed. Working with limited supervision, the ability to organise and work to key milestones will be critical to the success of the role.
