PMO Project Manager
Now is a really exciting time to join us. We’re working towards our vision of everyone has a home. It’s a bold statement but one everyone across our business is passionate about. Our purpose is to improve people’s lives. We provide safety and security through our reliable landlord services and we supply a wide range of housing options in response to the housing crisis. We believe that work isn’t somewhere you go, it’s something you do. No two days are the same here, and agile working is the norm rather than the exception.
Do you have great communication skills, love working to deadlines and keeping things on track? Then we have a new Project Manager opportunity within The Project Management Office which may suit you down to the ground.
We support all areas of the business with their projects and are involved right at the start through to the end. This involves many things including meeting with key stakeholders, planning meetings, sometimes organising launches and much more.
If this has sparked your interest, read the role profile and if you feel you have the right skills, then please apply.
