Project Manager – 12 Month Fixed Term Contract

Who we are

Arqiva is at the heart of the broadcast and utilities sector in the UK and beyond.

Through our infrastructure we ensure media and data is taken from, and delivered to where it is most valued, whether that’s from broadcasters to your TV screen or radio, or from your smart meter to the utility company. Even if you haven’t heard of us before, the chances are you’re indirectly a customer of ours and our infrastructure is part of your everyday life!

We have a rich heritage and an exciting future ahead of us, and there’s so much more to us that we can’t wait to share with you. 

What do you need to be the best version of you…

We have worked closely with our colleagues during the past 18 months to create Work. Life. Smarter. – our approach and commitment to a flexible and hybrid working culture for everyone. Our approach gives our colleagues empowerment and support to work in ways that enable them to thrive in their role. We are very much on a learning journey at Arqiva, but through a balance of in-person and remote working opportunities, we are encouraging our teams to work together to put in place what works best for them, ensuring that they’re meeting individual, team and customer needs.  

Our colleagues feel empowered by the opportunities available to them to ensure we all bring our very best selves to work, wherever that may be, and we welcome the opportunity to talk to you about how Work. Life. Smarter. could work for the role you are interested in, as well as formal flexible working requests such as part-time or job shares.

Your key responsibilities will include:

  • Define the project scope, goals and deliverables and produce the Project Initiation Document. 
  • Define the tasks and resources required to deliver the project and produce a comprehensive project plan establishing project timelines, dependencies and critical paths.
  • Identify and assign the project team members, both direct and virtual, required to deliver the project, agree allocation of activities and manage delivery throughout the project lifecycle.

  • Identify 3rd party suppliers and ensure their standards of delivery, product specification and documentation are aligned to project requirements.
  • Manage customer relationships and interactions across the project, providing regular progress reports and responding to customer feedback.
  • Track progress against project deliverables and report progress to all stakeholders
  • Use defined Arqiva processes to manage changes to project scope, risks, issues and overall project governance.
  • Deliver an effective project handover to the customer, ensuring capability to maintain agreed standards of performance.
  • Evaluate each project against its scope and objectives and produce a Project Closure Report.

Must haves:

    • Experience working on large infrastructure projects (Civil or Manufacturing/Engineering Experience)
    • Good understanding of Customer Relations and working alongside customers as well as cross-functional teams
    • Experience delivering high value projects at set timeframes 

More than anything, we want to work with people who are passionate about what they do and believe in our vision. So, if you think you have most of the skills and / or experience we are looking for, then please do apply for the role - we want to hear from you!
