We are looking to appoint a Grade 8 Project Manager for the Fairwork project. This is a full-time post, available for a fixed term duration to start immediately for 12 months and is based in Oxford.
The Fairwork project is recruiting a highly skilled and experienced Project Manager to play a key role in the coordination of the Fairwork network and its projects.

This is a key and senior role in the project involving tasks such as:
•         having oversight of the overall project timelines
•         arranging appropriate sequencing of priorities
•         ensuring that project deliverables and outputs are planned and delivered effectively and on time
•         coordinating with collaborating institutions

The Project Manager will have outstanding strategic, operational and financial skills and will be used to managing complex projects, with demanding timelines and requirements. This appointment offers a unique opportunity to take on significant operational responsibilities in an exciting multidisciplinary action research project.
Whilst this role is a grade 8 position, we are willing to consider candidates with potential but less demonstrable experience who are seeking a development opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at grade 7 with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly. This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.
