IT portfolio – iSolutions
The University’s IT department, iSolutions, is looking for the right people to deliver projects that change the way the University uses IT to work. We need experienced and dynamic project managers to carry out our IT projects. If that’s you, then we’d love to hear from you.
We provide a full range of IT services to all staff and students and this role will join our IT portfolio community of project managers and business analysts. We manage a wide range of projects and programs to improve our current services and transform the staff and student experience into a diverse community of over 20,000 students and over 5,500 university staff.
In addition to significant project management experience, including end-to-end delivery of projects with significant business changes, you may also have experience of projects requiring technical integration, upgrades and/or a migration element of data. Our senior project managers collaborate with a range of stakeholders across the University and this role would suit someone who enjoys collaborating within the organization. Experience working with student systems would be a plus.
You will have a level of skill (including experience and other qualifications) equivalent to a postgraduate degree. A PRINCE2 practitioner or equivalent qualification in agile or traditional project management is also required.
Working at UoS
Our strategic plan – Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) builds on the ambition set out in the University’s strategy: “It is important that we act continuously to ensure that the University supports and includes everyone” .
Our EDI mission is to create an inclusive university community, and our vision is that it is a community where, as an individual student or staff member:
- You feel welcomed for who you are, and it’s a place where you feel you can influence the way we do things now and in the future
- You feel included and supported to reach your true potential
- You are intellectually stretched and challenged
- You value the diversity of the wider community and play your part in supporting the mission of inclusivity.
As part of our commitment to your well-being, we offer you professional pensions and generous holidays. Staff also have access to our state-of-the-art on-campus sports, arts and cultural facilities, a comprehensive events program and a number of university employee discount programs.
Work-life balance is important to us and this is reflected in our generous maternity policy and childcare services; employees can also participate in the Childcare Voucher Scheme. Our staff may wish to have work patterns that match their care responsibilities, so we invite applications to take on this role on a part-time or flexible working basis. We also welcome candidates who have had career breaks for reasons such as maternity, paternity or adoption leave, disability or illness.
You must submit your completed online application form to https://jobs.soton.ac.uk. The deadline for applications will be midnight on the closing date listed above.
