The role is a full-time 18 month Fixed Term Contract and will be based in the Strategic Projects Office (SPO). We are looking for a proactive and talented individual who will help drive forward the strategic agenda of one of the UK's largest and most ambitious universities.
Our ideal candidate will be an experienced Business Change Manager (BCM) who has considerable experience working on transformational projects and programmes. You will be accustomed to working at pace and managing senior stakeholders in a highly complex environment. You will be responsible for the definition and delivery of the change management approach on the Science and Engineering Delivering the Academic Vision Project (DAVP) and Library Transformation Programme.
The BCM will provide professional expertise and guidance to the project and programme leadership teams, and act as the first point of contact in the areas of organisational change and stakeholder management. Working closely with the Senior Project Managers and Communications and Information Officer, you will devise and implement the stakeholder engagement and change management plans. You will also lead on departmental and programme level communications as well as the production of any associated collateral.
Here at Manchester Metropolitan University, we are committed to developing an outstanding teaching and learning experience for our students, whilst also building a research-rich culture to address some of the biggest challenges facing society today. Key to delivering this agenda are the Science and Engineering Delivering the Academic Vision Project (DAVP) and Library Transformation Programme (LTP); the two largest initiatives in the SPO portfolio. Both initiatives will help transform the organisation and enhance our offer to students, staff, and the wider community.
About the initiatives
The Science and Engineering Delivering the Academic Vision Project is a project that is being delivered alongside the Science and Engineering Capital Build Project. The project is entirely focused on the delivery of the Science and Engineering Faculty's academic vision so that the vision can be translated into practical delivery/working in new ways. It is about people, how they fit into the new estate and their contribution to the S&E academic vision.
The Library Transformation Programme is the University's largest investment to date. The programme is currently in the definition stage and requires transformational change management expertise to inform the approach in the subsequent stages.
The position is Fixed Term until April 2024.
