£33,364 - £39,360 p.a.

Are you an experienced project manager looking to make a difference?


We are Cambridge University Press & Assessment, a world-leading academic publisher and assessment organisation, and a proud part of the University of Cambridge.


About the Role

We have an exciting opportunity for a talented Project Manager to join our busy Portfolio Office, working on a range of business-critical technology and business change projects.


About You

You will have strong communication and people skills, excellent team-working and organisational skills and a positive attitude, able to respond constructively to any issues that arise and to identify, communicate and mitigate risk effectively to all stakeholders. Experience of managing project schedules and budgets are essential.


You will have a demonstrable track record of delivering projects on time and to budget, as well as a clear understanding of project management principles and methodologies.


You will be adept at the following:

  • Moving projects forwards effectively, successfully delivering business outcomes
  • Skilfully managing your project stakeholders
  • Translating across business and technical environments
  • Demonstrating a commitment to deliver on time, on budget and to the required level of quality


Working as part of and supporting a project team you will be empowered to get the best out of others and you will enjoy coming up with innovative solutions to problems.  You will be accountable for your project plan and results. 


 Interviews are scheduled to take place as soon as possible.
