As part of one of our Enterprise Delivery Hubs, you'll be working with some of our largest government customers and corporate brands across the UK and Ireland. What we do matters to their customers and effects the everyday lives of citizens in the UK and Ireland. You may be working as part of a wider team to help support or deliver projects for our customers or you may get the opportunity to deliver your own work orders from start to finish. Each of our projects and customers are unique, which means it's an exciting place to learn new skills.

You will work alongside other similarly skilled individuals in a co-located team. You will be well supported by experienced project and programme managers day to day as well as developing you to reach your own career ambitions.

What you'll be doing

* Delivery - Delivery of work orders to the Project & Programme Management Team as directed, on projects (or individual work orders) of varying size and complexity. This may involve owning some work orders end-to-end (with a small to medium degree of risk) or delivering work orders or project support activities as part of a wider Programme or Project Team.

* Organising - Organising and controlling delivery activities, under the direction of a Project or Programme Manager. Ensure deadlines are met and documents are updated accurately. Tracking and ensuring actions are completed.
* Stakeholders - Maintain effective working relationships with stakeholders across the firm and your customer, at an appropriate level.

* Methodologies - Following and learning the necessary Programme & Project Management methodologies and processes to benefit now and in the future.
* Tolerances - Delivering work to the necessary time, cost and quality constraints.
* Risks and Issues - Managing risk and issues that are identified by managing a RAID log.

* Resources - Booking and managing delivery resources. Where required, interface with 3rd party suppliers, which involves the agreement, planning, timelines and quality of deliverables.

* Reporting & Governance - Providing status updates within the firm and externally and contributing to Programme & Project governance.
* Finances - Track work order costs where required. Ensure completed requests are effectively closed out for invoicing. Identify and manage changes to scope and cost.
Whilst day to day operations and software may differ from assignment to assignment, the level of responsibility and accountability remains the same across all roles
