Department: Education
Location: Cardiff, Wales
Salary: 34,000
Job Advert Description:

We are seeking an experienced, proactive and diligent Project Manager to oversee the Education projects in Wales.

The role

This is an exciting role that will project manage two education projects in Wales; the Stimulating Physics Network (SPN) and Improving Gender Balance (IGB). The SPN Wales project provides CPD and support to teachers of physics in Wales and the IGB works to tackle the barriers to girls’ progression into physics.

You will develop and lead a team (including remote workers) to deliver high quality CPD and ensure project targets and budgets are delivered. You will also oversee evaluation of the projects and engage with project partners and stakeholders to present a positive image of the project and the Institute.

The Person

You will be an experienced project manager who is engaging and organised, able to drive these projects forward while monitoring progress towards targets. You will be a team player, capable of supporting a team of remote workers and an excellent communicator, with exceptional negotiating skills to reach outcomes that gain acceptance of all parties.

Being proactive, dependable and having initiative is also of paramount importance.

Experience of project management is expected and knowledge of the STEM education landscape in Wales would be a plus.  The ideal candidate will also have an interest in widening participation.

Why work with us?

We are a charitable membership organisation with a worldwide membership from enthusiastic amateurs to those at the top of their sector in academia, business, education and government.

Our purpose is to gather, inspire, guide, represent and celebrate all who share a passion for physics. And, in our role as a charity, we’re here to ensure that physics delivers on its exceptional potential to benefit society.

This is an exciting time to join the IOP team in Wales. The IOP is starting a new five year strategy and several new projects in Wales mean our team will be expanding. We are excited about these changes and are seeking new talent to help us shape a contemporary organisation that is fit for the future.

In addition to a competitive salary and professional development opportunities, we offer employees a comprehensive benefits package including an excellent pension scheme, private medical insurance and generous annual leave.
