The opportunity

UAL Online is an exciting new division established to bring creative arts education to a global audience. We are launching new fully online degree courses starting from the 2024/25 academic year and are seeking a proactive and strategic Project Manager to spearhead major change programmes across the university. 

In this role, you’ll be instrumental in shaping our new operations, which involves evolving existing systems for new audiences and establishing entirely new systems, infrastructures, and processes across the university. Reporting directly to the Commercial Director of UAL Online, you’ll oversee project delivery, ensure stakeholder satisfaction, and drive results within set timelines and budgets.

Working closely with cross-functional teams, you’ll utilise project delivery methods and techniques to navigate different project phases, develop business cases, and implement strategic initiatives. Your ability to effectively manage project teams, foster collaboration, and uphold accountability for project outcomes will be key to the role.

About you

To excel in this role, you should have a proven track record of delivering user-focused organisational change projects with significant structural and cultural components. Strong knowledge of project delivery methods and techniques, with the ability to define and justify projects through business case creation is essential. Experience in building and managing high-performing project teams, driving successful change initiatives within complex environments, alongside excellent stakeholder management skills will also be key to the role.

A project management qualification (preferably in Agile methodology or equivalent e.g. PRINCE2 Practitioner, APM Practitioner, Agile Project Manager /Scrum Certification) would be highly desirable.
