We are seeking an enthusiastic and hard-working individual, with strong interpersonal skills, to join our project management team.

You will be supporting senior team members in the delivery of our world leading technology demonstration projects. As part of the project management team, you will be responsible for managing the day-to-day administration of complex, multi-stakeholder projects through their entire lifecycle. You will contribute to overcoming the challenges associated with first-of-a-kind deployments in the low carbon sector including hydrogen and electric vehicles, industrial decarbonisation, and energy storage.

Through this role, you will be responsible for building strong client relationships, managing large budgets and events, and supporting the team in monitoring and reporting on targets.

Key responsibilities include:
• Supporting the Project Lead in all aspects of project delivery through the entire project lifecycle: including project planning & estimation, budget management, risk management, quality management and stakeholder engagement.
• Providing secretariat services for multi-stakeholder international projects including organising biannual meetings and hosting regular teleconferences.
• Developing and maintaining relationships with clients and stakeholders.
• Compiling strategic research, briefing documents, reports, and presentations for project meetings and conferences.
• Developing strategies to communicate the results of projects to technical/non-technical audiences.
