Are you a Project Manager with extensive experience in shaping and leading new projects and teams? Do you have experience and understanding of electrification technologies?

WMG is a vibrant, cutting-edge research institution at the University of Warwick. We are currently looking for a Project Manager to support delivery of a range of projects within energy storage and electrification for aerospace.

You will have significant industry project management experience, ideally with relevant technical experience, and be a confident and articulate communicator, as the role provides opportunities to engage with a wide range of stakeholders as well as providing an engaging working environment as part of our wider project team. You will have excellent analytical and problem solving skills that can be applied to multidisciplinary projects. The ideal candidate will be an experienced project management professional, and have strong people skills. Experience in an Aerospace, Automotive OEM or Tier 1 environment is preferred.

In return we will provide a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus bank holidays and Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.

At WMG we are committed to supporting staff to achieve their potential. We currently hold the Athena SWAN Bronze Award and the University of Warwick holds an Institutional Silver Award: a national initiative that recognises the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia. We are supportive of staff with caring responsibilities including a generous maternity/paternity/adoption/parental leave policy, and onsite childcare facilities. We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
