Senior Project Manager

£38,671 - £46,405 p.a.

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


The Role

We have an exciting opportunity for a talented Senior Project Manager to join our busy Projects Office, in the first instance, leading a website development programme. You will be responsible for coordinating the senior users and senior supplier, in line with the project sponsors vision and managing the project budget, scope and schedule. In collaboration with the project board, you will ensure that the project adheres to appropriate governance requirements and delivers the required outputs.

The role also may include line management of a small team of Project Managers who may be working on different projects; providing mentoring, support and coaching.


We will consider applications for full or part-time working.


About You

You will have a demonstrable track record of delivering web site development projects on time and to budget, as well as a clear understanding of project management principles and Agile methodologies. You should be comfortable working with senior stakeholders across different departments and experience of taking the lead within a project team. You will be adept at forming effective working relationships at speed and will have the ability to communicate effectively across different functional areas.

 We value the following personal qualities:

  • Can you drive a project forwards effectively, successfully delivering business outcomes?
  • Stakeholder management. Can you skilfully manage your project stakeholders?
  • Can you translate across business and technical environments?
  • Will you go the extra mile to deliver on time, on budget and to the required level of quality?


The key to our work is our colleagues, whose shared commitment enables us to have an ever-greater impact. We are a united, vibrant, and respectful global community of people, and we ensure that every individual is recognised, listened to, and cared for. And because our impact is amplified when our people are empowered, we give everyone the opportunity to develop in their own way. Whether you want a career that's linear, or want to follow your own path, we'll support you, and help give you the resources and training you'll need to be bold and take ownership of what you do.


Cambridge University Press & Assessment is committed to being a place where anyone can enjoy a successful career, where it's safe to speak up, and where we learn continuously to improve together. We welcome applications from all candidates, regardless of demographic characteristics (age, disability, educational attainment, ethnicity, gender, marital status, neurodiversity, religion, sex, and sexual identity), cultural, or social class/background.

We believe that diversity of thought, background, and approach create better outcomes. More importantly, fostering an inclusive culture is the right thing to do, and it's part of how we achieve our purpose: to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence. Ensuring that anyone, no matter who they are, feels they belong here is an essential part of who we are and the contribution we make to society, and to our planet.

To enable an environment which our people can thrive in, our customers benefit from, and where work complements life, we empower everyone to manage their time and capacity, and to prioritise their wellbeing. That's why from day one everyone at Cambridge University Press & Assessment can discuss flexible working options to find the best solution for them and their role.
