One in six people in the UK will have a disability in their lifetime and we want to make sure they have the opportunity to live their lives to their full potential.

Leonard Cheshire Disability is the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of services for disabled people. Our services include high-quality care and community support together with innovative projects supporting disabled people into education, employment and entrepreneurship. Worldwide, our global alliance of Cheshire partners supports disabled people into education and employment and works in more than 50 countries.

This is a hugely exciting opportunity for you to join our Transformation and Technology team in a cross functional project role that requires delivery of both technical (IT) projects and business projects. This is a key role at a time when we have just launched our new strategy and embark on an ambitious period of transformation with the aim of reaching more people with disabilities and making a positive difference to their lives.

You will have substantial demonstrable experience as a successful project manager, ideally in a range of sectors. You will have a good technical background with an understanding of, or hands-on experience in, software development and web technologies.

You will bring prior experience of change management, solid organisational skills that include attention to detail and multi-tasking and have experience of PRINCE II or APM Body of Knowledge methodologies.

Benefits

  • Substantial annual leave
  • A generous employer contribution to a company pension scheme with additional life cover
  • Access to a cash health plan at favourable rates
  • Flexible working and much, much more.

Leonard Cheshire welcomes applicants from all sections of the community.

Shortlisting for this role may take place as applications are received. We therefore reserve the right to close this vacancy once a suitable candidate has been appointed.

The successful candidate will demonstrate a commitment to the values and ethos of the charity
