We're the charity who look after and bring to life 2,000 miles of waterways across England and Wales, because we believe that life is better by water. Every role across the Trust plays it's part in transforming our canals and rivers into spaces where local people want to spend time and feel better, bringing wellbeing benefits to millions.
We are looking for an enthusiastic project manager to join our IT team at the Canal & River Trust. In this role, you will analyse business requirements, propose suitable solutions in conjunction with colleagues, and then drive those solutions through to realisation. Part of your remit will be to find ways to improve existing services. At the same time, you’ll be expected to collaborate with marketing, fundraising and other parts of the business to develop new services that enhance the experiences of supporters and volunteers. On the projects you lead, your areas of responsibility will include project planning, forecasting, resourcing, controlling costs and ensuring technical compliance.
You will need a proven track record of full lifecycle project management, including experience of business analysis. It is also important that you can explain complex technical issues to non-technical staff.
This opportunity can be based out of Birmingham or Leeds.
At the Trust we care passionately for our waterways, and as importantly, for those who look after and use them. We strongly believe that a diverse workforce brings with it a diversity of ideas, thinking and ways of working which enhances what we do as a Trust.
In addition to your annual salary, we also offer a competitive contributory DC Pension scheme arrangement, and numerous other employee benefits, including several salary sacrifice benefits. Further details can be found here.
We are striving to represent the diverse communities that we are a part of. All candidates will be treated on the basis of their merits, skills and abilities and solely by being assessed against the requirements for the job. Many of our vacancies can be considered for people who wish to work flexibly, job share or part time.
