Who we are looking for

We are searching for candidates with robust Project Management experience, ideally within an education setting, to join our Learning Design team as our new Fellow (Project Manager). This Fellow role will provide critical project management support to the Learning Design team across a range of new and evolving projects. The role will ensure the team is set-up effectively to meet milestones on key areas of work through the design, creation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of a range of projects. The role will work closely with a range of other teams, provide technical support and expertise across the team and ensure the delivery of large design projects to time, quality and cost requirements.

Based either from home, or in one of our London, Birmingham or Manchester offices and reporting into the Dean, Learning Design, you’ll provide project support and oversight for the department, managing overall timelines and project plans. This role will oversee product management within the wider team, and also product deployment, with responsibility for ensuring that aspects of online learning are provided at the right time and to the right people.

You will have a track record of excellent project management, have incredible attention to detail and be able to use your initiative to identify the need for systems and processes. Ideally, you will have experience of using Learning Management Systems to support the development of others, and you will be able to hit the ground running and be able to quickly assume responsibility for new projects and areas of work as the remit of the wider team evolves.
