  • analytical
  • organisational
  • administrative

You will need to know and understand the theory of project management and be able to support the process where the project manager will be using it every day to manage the project.

It’s these little ‘support’ requirements that appear on every project at any one time that need a good project support manager so the project manager can delegate. And every project manager wants a right hand person that can provide support when it’s needed the m

Vacancy is fixed term until March 21, with a potential to be extended in line with the requirements of the Programme.
