Job Description

We are looking for a 12-month fixed term Operations and Projects Manager to join our Operational Leadership Team to help us build a better students’ union, one that students rely on and are proud to be a part of. This is an exciting time to take on this new role as we seek to make progress on a number of key strategic and operational projects. Some of these projects include a potential merger with St. Georges Students’ Union, a move to a new office and student facing space in August/September 2024 and other strategic projects linked to our promises and enablers.

You will, on behalf of the Chief Executive, take responsibility for leading some aspects of the operations of the Union and a number of strategic projects. The purpose of this role is to provide additional capacity to the Chief Executive in a pivotal year as the Union implements its new strategy which aims to ‘Make Every Day Better’ for City students, whilst also responding to major projects such as a potential merger with St. Georges Students’ Union, moving to a new space as part of the Student Gateway project and implementing new ways of working.

You will have in depth experience in project and change management with clear examples of how they have developed and led innovative solutions. You will also have experience in developing and implementing operational policies and procedures. The role will be varied, with no two days the same so the successful candidate will need to be able to be very effective in managing a diverse and high pressure workload.
