You will support the team's Project Manager in a number of ways - communicating with teachers, managing suppliers, ensuring work is delivered on time and to the highest standards, ensuring all relevant data are collected, managing budgets, and reporting for clients / the management team.

A particular focus will be to support their project managing collaborative research projects for further education providers. This will involve arranging meetings, working with the educational consultants, managing the grant funding process, ensuring they have all required documentation to meet project requirements, and ensuring regular reporting from the research teams.

- Highly effective planning and organising skills
- Decisive judgement, and be a good problem solver
