Are you passionate about helping develop the UK’s capability and capacity to deliver in the Nuclear Sector and other Net Zero initiatives?

We have an exciting opportunity to join the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (Nuclear AMRC) as a Senior Project Manager within the Supply Chain Development group.

The Supply Chain Development team is expanding to meet the challenges of industry. Working alongside Technical Leads and Industrial Advisors, you will support and develop the capability of the Supply Chain Development group and its place within the nuclear sector. Projects will be broadly focused on understanding and developing the UK nuclear supply chain to establish the capabilities required for near term and future technologies but may also encompass other technology groups.

As a Senior Project Manager, you will play a key role within an integrated project team based in the Nuclear AMRC, ensuring that each project is run in accordance with client requirements and the Nuclear AMRC’s Quality Management requirements.

You will be the focal point for the project team, co-ordinating resources and equipment loading to ensure that customer objectives are met and delivered on time and within budget. You will be customer focussed and be the face of the team when dealing with clients throughout the project lifecycle.

You will be working closely with a broad range of Industrial, Catapult, and Academic partners within Nuclear and adjacent Industries. You will therefore be positioned within an important team at the heart of the Nuclear AMRC’s strategy for regional growth, providing a critical service to UK companies and a significant contribution to the continuing improvement of the Centre & our future capabilities.

You will have:

  • An honours degree in Business, project management or Engineering (or equivalent experience).
  • Experience of leading complex projects in a commercial environment and interfacing with customers/stakeholders at all levels.
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, with experience of writing reports and delivering presentations.
  • Experience of project management methodologies, project life cycles, change control processes and configuration control of project documentation.
  • Effective leadership skills, managing resources aligning the day-to-day work and goals of the team with the organisation’s strategic vision.
