What we are looking for…
Here in North Somerset, we have a vision to be open, fair and green and are seeking a Senior Project Manager to support projects that will help us achieve this vision. You’ll have the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects that will significantly reshape the development and delivery of council-wide services. From our new ways of working programme to the ongoing development of our Programme Management Office, you’ll be involved in projects that will have a significant impact on how our organisation works and improve the lives of our residents and our businesses.
Ideally, you’ll have practical experience in various project management methodologies such as Prince 2, Hybrid and Agile, and of change management processes and approaches.
