Job details

South Bank University Enterprise Ltd, the enterprise company of London South Bank University, is looking for a Project Manager (PM) within its Research, Enterprise and Innovation Department (REI). REI activities cover a range of income generating activities and also support wider entrepreneurial activity and external engagement between business, staff and students.

The current post provides an exciting opportunity to join the newly developed Institute of Health and Wellbeing, an interdisciplinary and inter-professional centre of excellence working towards improving the health and wellbeing status of individuals, communities and regions. The Institute combines a number of expert disciplines across LSBU in a single unit, helping foster novel collaborations, partnerships and innovative research and enterprise activities. The focus of the Institute is to improve the health and wellbeing of populations through impactful interventions, research and policy guidance.

The PM will be responsible for the successful delivery of REI’s recently won European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) project, Simulation for Digital Health (SimDH). The role will require close working with Business Development Managers, academic Schools and external organisations to ensure projects are delivered to contract and achieve all desired objectives.

The candidate will have Project Management experience, ideally in the health and wellbeing sector, with experience of delivering large, complex, multi-stakeholder projects, creating and managing client relationships, identifying resources to deliver, financial management, and supporting the development of project proposals. You will be part of a large team but must also be able to work independently. You will have strong organisation and interpersonal skills with an ability to communicate effectively both internally and externally.

Other desirable attributes;

• Previous knowledge and experience of working on ERDF funded projects
• Strong technical skills base, with high numeracy, analytical and IT skills, in addition to good written and document design skills.
• Experience of building and maintaining effective working relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders
• Good project management and organisational skills and attention to detail, not only managing activity in line with agreed outcomes, but going beyond this to identify areas for improvement.

• Flexible approach to work with the ability to prioritise complex workloads and manage changing priorities, whilst maintaining high standards of quality
