Senior Project Manager
Cardiff (but currently remote working due to Government Guidance)
28 hours per week
This role is a Fixed Term Contract (ending 31st January 2022 - but with the potential to extend until the 31st January 2023)
JobSense is a collaborative employment support project (RNID being the lead partner), which supports people who are deaf or have hearing loss and people who are blind or have sight loss, into volunteering and paid work. The c£3m project is funded by the Wales European Funding Office (WEFO).
This senior role will lead the JobSense project by planning and overseeing all aspects of project delivery; including co-ordinating the partnership, monitoring progress against planned performance, ensuring key milestones are met and managing a complex budget, requiring stringent reporting and compliance.
The successful applicant will have strong leadership skills, be confident in managing a large budget with excellent attention to detail and have demonstrable experience of successfully monitoring and managing a diverse project. Experience of European funding requirements, or the ability to quickly learn and apply the requirements, is essential. Familiarity with the employment policy landscape in Wales is advantageous.
Communication is a basic human need. Yet most of us know someone who struggles to communicate through hearing loss. It can cause substantial harm to friendships, family relationships, confidence, employability, mental health and life chances.
The RNID (formerly Action on Hearing Loss) is the UK’s largest charity for the 11 million people in the UK who confront deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss every day. Established in 1911, we help people to take control of their lives and live the life they choose, removing the barriers standing in their way. We give people support and care, develop technology and treatments, and campaign for equality.
We champion the value of difference and equality and celebrate our diverse and inclusive workforce. We actively encourage applications from eligible candidates from BAME backgrounds or who are deaf or hard of hearing. With almost 20% of our employees having a disability we proudly hold Disability Confident Leader status and guarantee an interview for disabled applicants meeting the minimum essential criteria.
