Do you want to use your project management skills to play a key role in the organisational change of one of the world's top competition and consumer agencies? Do you have the experience to champion effective project management and management information processes which will shape the future of the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA)?   About the CMA We help people, businesses, and the UK economy by promoting competitive markets and tackling unfair behaviour. Our work is wide ranging, ambitious and often new and challenging.   The role

This is an exciting time to join the CMA as we imbed significant and important new functions such as the Digital Markets Unit, the Subsidy Advice Unit and the Office of the Internal Market and continue to take on impactful and ever more high-profile work in our existing areas such as merger control, market studies and consumer protection. As part of the wider CMA Strategy function, this role provides a great opportunity to play an important part in the development of the CMA's strategic planning. You will be responsible for shaping and delivering reporting to the CMA's Senior Management and Board on the alignment of the CMA's casework portfolio with these strategic priorities. This role is also key in leading the co-ordination of the CMA's portfolio of casework and ensuring that the CMA delivers on both its medium-term and annual strategic priorities. It involves working directly with Senior Staff including the CEO and other Board and Executive Team members to deliver this. You will work on relevant projects, workstreams and activities, which may relate to strategy, capability building and horizon scanning, advising on how case/project teams can be structured, and how data can be gathered, analysed, and presented in the best way to support effective and strategic decision making. You will champion the role of the Project Management Team amongst CMA staff, educating them on the role of the function and embedding its analysis and insight into relevant processes within the organisation. You will lead the PMO team, supporting the ongoing delivery of existing analysis, advice, and reporting and work with the Senior Directors, Senior Executive Team, and CEO to share ideas for how information can help decision making. You will also lead the facilitation and support the allocation of staff to projects in conjunction with senior and project directors. Finally, you will act as an ambassador for the PMO and wider strategy function, communicating and advocating for the importance and benefits of strategic and structured approach to our portfolio.    What you will need Proven project management skills and experience and the ability to work with diverse and senior stakeholders to deliver effective outcomes are essential.
