Role

This is a really exciting time to join Girlguiding. We have much to be proud of in our one hundred years of history, but we know that to remain vibrant and relevant to young people we must continually evolve.

We’ve begun a process of significant change: transforming the organisation so it can meet the challenges of the future by putting young people at the heart of our organisation. We’re on a mission to amplify the voices of girls and young women, so they can champion change in their own lives and the wider world; to build strong partnerships that can increase our reach and impact; and to increase the support we offer our amazing adult volunteers who deliver incredible experiences to young people across the UK every week.

Are you a career project manager with a track record in successfully managing large and complex projects using waterfall and agile methodologies such as PRINCE2 and Scrum?  Can you author meaningful project documentation, track interdependencies, and deliver communications that inspire and inform? Can you lead project teams across a number of strategic projects? And would you like to use your talents to help Girlguiding meet its objectives and help girls have amazing experiences?

Girlguiding is recruiting a senior project manager to drive forward a large scale, transformation programme across the organisation. Collaborating with colleagues, working with a multi-disciplinary digital team this key role will lead on the planning, delivery, and overall management of multiple projects.

You have a degree and/ or professional qualification in project management (e.g. APM PMQ, PPQ or Chartered Project Professional ChPP, Professional Scrum Master or Certified Agile / Lean Practitioner) or equivalent relevant experience. You have strong interpersonal, leadership and budget management skills. Managing a small project team you’ll be part of the transformation portfolio management office (PMO) and will work across the portfolio, on large scale, varied and complex projects. 

Girlguiding values the differences that a diverse workforce brings and is committed to inclusivity, and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. Girlguiding is proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme, a member of the Business Disability Forum, and a member of Time to Change. While Girlguiding’s young members may be women only, our staff team is mixed gender. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
