Assistant Project Manager
Premium Job From Environment Agency
Recruiter: Environment Agency
Listed on: 1st November
Location: United Kingdom
Salary/Rate: £27,138 - £29,000
Salary Notes: Potentially more for exceptional candidates
Type: Permanent
Start Date: ASAP
Reference: EA2
Contact Name: Environment Agency
This role will see you join teams working on vital projects, often focused on our flood risk asset management programme. In practice, you’ll take complete responsibility for some of our smaller projects, and support senior colleagues as you gain experience on our major programmes of work.

Whatever the challenge, you’ll be involved throughout and take on wide-ranging responsibilities: adding value at the initial strategic planning phase all the way into implementation, construction and delivery. This will require demonstration of collaborative working, building positive working relationships, influencing and persuading, report writing, cost monitoring and forecasting, feasibility assessment, outline design, environmental management and construction management.

This calls for a relevant degree (or equivalent) in a subject such as civil engineering, environmental science, geography or something similar and a background in both contract and project management. Innovative and full of ideas, you’ll be a great communicator and champion of good practice, well-used to achieving project outcomes as part of a high performing team.

Having used project management skills for at least a year, it would also help to have a project management qualification such as PRINCE2 or APM and be a member of a related professional body too; but we can support you towards this. The more experience you have of financial and commercial controls, NEC contract suites, CDM regulations and risk management, the better.

A full driving licence is also an advantage, as some travel is involved; although the use of public transport is preferred.

A rewarding environment
There are exceptional benefits to look forward to here, including a generous pension and substantial leave. We offer a range of flexible working options, including flexi-time and part time/job share, where possible, so you can strike the right balance between work and home life. We try our best to accommodate personal commitments.

Naturally, we want you to be the best in your field. So expect training and development that helps you grow professionally. We will also pay your fees for one professional membership.

We value a diverse workforce and welcome applications from all sections of the community who wish to join an organisation which values everyone. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), disabled, female and LGBT+ candidates, so that our team really does represent and understand the communities we work with. We want all our people to feel good about where they work and why they come to work, that they can be themselves without fear of judgement or prejudice and that all views are equally respected and valued. We believe everyone should have an equal chance of achieving their life goals. Diversity: it’s in our nature.
