Location: Oxford, ENGLAND
Deadline: 14 Aug 2019


The Projects and Programmes Delivery Group (PPDG) is responsible for the successful delivery of a large capital programme (£60 million over 3 years), working in collaboration with colleagues across the collegiate University to deliver new and enhanced IT solutions to support the delivery of the University’s Strategic Plan.

Ongoing and timely communications are a vital way of ensuring the successful adoption of new technology, processes and ways of working in the devolved structure of the collegiate University, and we have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Projects Communication Manager to join the Business Change team within PPDG.

Leading a team of both permanent and contract Project Communication Officers, the postholder will have responsibility for managing and co-ordinating communication of changes across the entire IT Portfolio, ensuring consistency in messages and efficiency in dissemination, so that stakeholders receive relevant and timely information about important changes. They will also be responsible for promoting the benefits and value of the investment in IT.

Key responsibilities include defining and implementing a communications strategy and plan for the overall IT Portfolio; monitoring and assuring the work of Project Communication Officers; leading on all communication activities for assigned projects; management and oversight of the Projects Website; and resource planning.

The successful candidate must have extensive experience in delivering and supporting project/programme communications in a large organisation with varied and complex stakeholder groups, and experience of advising staff on complex communications challenges, including crisis communications. They will have excellent written and verbal communication skills and well-developed interpersonal skills, with a customer focus and the ability to communicate and foster strong relationships with staff at all levels.

Highly organised and with a good eye for detail, they will also need strong people management skills alongside the ability to lead and motivate a team.

The role is busy and varied, and with each project comes a new change challenge. Proven ability to prioritise and handle multiple tasks simultaneously while meeting competing deadlines is therefore essential.

This is a 3 year fixed-term contract. Whilst a full-time post, we may consider part-time (minimum 30 hours/0.8FTE).

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Wednesday 14 August 2019. Interviews are anticipated to take place in the week commencing Monday 26 August 2019.
