Project Manager

We are looking to recruit a Project Manager experienced in delivering IT projects. You will be part of a Project Delivery team made up various Project Management roles, working within a large IT department with an extensive project portfolio.

As a professional Project Manager, you will be expected to work at pace to deliver business benefits through a variety of projects from infrastructure and application upgrades to new implementations in support of the wider business initiatives. Working with a wide range of technologies and people, both within IT and across the organisation, to deliver in support of the Trusts strategy.

What it's like to work here

We're bigger than you think, we're more complicated than we appear and we're larger scale than you'd imagine. We've got passionate people in all our teams, and we've got so much more we want to achieve. We're for ever, for everyone and we really mean that. We don't want to stop at 5.5 million members and we want everyone to feel welcome and enjoy access to our places, so we need to reach new audiences in ways that are meaningful and relevant to them without losing the hearts and minds of those that are already with us.

Your contractual location will be our head office in Swindon and there will be an expectation for you to attend the office. However, there is flexibility on where you are based at other times. You will be required to work at a National Trust location for 40-60% of your working week. This will be discussed in more detail at interview.

What you'll be doing

As a project manager at the National Trust, you'll lead and oversee projects of varying sizes and complexities, adhering to the National Trust Project Management Framework. Your role involves managing project teams, identifying stakeholders, and ensuring effective communication. You'll also be responsible for resource allocation, budget forecasting, risk management, and producing high-quality reports. Understanding the strategic role of projects in delivering the National Trust's mission, you'll collaborate with the wider Project Management Team, contributing to a vibrant community of practice.

You'll need you to be creative, resourceful, have great initiative and be able to work with all kinds of people and organisations. You'll also need to broker time from people within the National Trust who are already busy to help you deliver the projects, so an ability to navigate large organisations and build great working relationships will be crucial.
