The Department for International Trade (DIT) is an international economic department, responsible for breaking down barriers to trade and investment, delivering a new trade policy framework for the UK, promoting British trade and investment across the world, and building the global appetite for British goods and services.
Almost all government policy is delivered through projects or transformational programs. Thousands are carried out each year to improve the UK’s infrastructure, transform public services, safeguard national security, and boost international trade. Within DIT, we understand the importance of project delivery to ensure we can deliver these effectively and efficiently.
We are looking for a proactive and flexible Project Manager to join our high performing team. As a Project Manager at DIT, you’ll lead on a variety of exciting projects and manage these day to day throughout the project lifecycle, from project initiation through to completion. You’ll work with internal and external stakeholders, bringing people together to benefit projects so you’ll be well versed in developing productive relationships and managing expectations. You’ll also have the opportunity to line manage colleagues, so a willingness to engage, motivate, and coach others is vital.
Who we’d like to meet
You’ll be a project manager with:
* Previous experience working on projects or in a project management environment
* Experience managing stakeholders to deliver project outputs
* A formal project management qualification(s) at Practitioner level (e.g., Association for Project Management or PRINCE2)
* Experience setting up Governance on projects in terms of clearly defining roles, responsibilities and accountabilities and establishing controls to monitor progress and compliance
In return, we will offer you exposure to a range of challenging projects in different areas of an organisation at the heart of the Government’s international agenda. You will receive support as well as ongoing formal and informal opportunities to continue your personal and professional development
