Your new company
Due to an internal service redesign, we are now looking to recruit a Project Manager to work in the heart of the city centre on a 12 - 18 month contract. Birmingham City Council is the largest single local authority in Europe offering a range of opportunities and regeneration. With Birmingham and the surrounding areas continuing to develop, the council pride itself to make life better for the millions of people who live and work in the city.
Your new role
As a Project Manager, you will be working on the Adult Social Care and Health Programme within the programme on a long term basis. You will be required to implement project plans, and arranging the relevant work stream meetings. You will also be required to chase for regular progress updates and handling any required business cases in line with the project. In addition to this, you will be reporting updates to the Senior Programme Managers and senior stakeholders related to the project.
What you'll need to succeed
As an experienced Project Manager, you will ideally have an up to date PRINCE2 qualification and Project Management experience with large, complex projects. A public sector background would be highly beneficial, but not essential. Candidates with an IT background would not be suitable for this role and would not be considered.
What you'll get in return
As part of Birmingham City Councils Big City Plan, by 2022, they will have hoped to have created an additional 50,000 jobs in the city and contributing over £2 billion to the economy each year. You will be helping to contribute to providing 65,000 square meters of new and improved public spaces and over 5,000 new homes and leisure facilities whilst valuing the city's heritage and cultural assets. This will all culminate in the 2022 Commonwealth Games bringing Birmingham once again to the world stage.
