Job Description:
Project Manager
Fixed Term f/t (37.5 hrs pw to 01/03/20)

We are looking for someone with energy, dynamism and enthusiasm for our special place. Someone who can deliver our targets but can also see new opportunities and creative solutions. Someone who can inspire the team around them and bring a positive problem solving approach.

You’re an experienced project manager, who brings rigour and organisation, combined with resilience and confidence – both to lead the project team, and to lead for the project at Chartwell.

You’ll manage and lead the delivery of the nationally important Churchill’s Chartwell Project, which is now in implementation. We need you to establish control of the overall plan, fulfilling all governance and reporting requirements.

What it's like to work here
It’s 50 years since the National Trust was asked to look after Chartwell. Now, more than ever, we need to inspire generations of visitors, to connect with the family home of one of our greatest ever leaders. We want to ensure that Churchill stays relevant, through the ways we move, teach and inspire people through engagement and story-telling.

What you'll be doing
You’ll be tasked with preparing project management and grant body documents and administer this major fundraising and interpretation project. The project is HLF-supported project and of national importance for the Trust which is now in implementation phase.

You’ll actively deliver project work streams, for example oral history, training and workshops, some of the interpretation and all the volunteering elements of the project. You’ll be the property lead for project fundraising, communication and coordinating donor visits, and will deliver the delegated elements of the fundraising and communications plan.

You’ll also line manage the project team including the Learning and Participation Officer and Volunteering and Participation Coordinator. You’ll be the lead for the project specific volunteers. As well as managing internal stakeholders you’ll also manage external consultants involved in the project.

Primarily, you’ll deliver the Project Plan for Churchill’s Chartwell.

Who we're looking for

The skills, knowledge and experience we’d like to see include:
• Experience of working on a project, and a sound understanding of managing projects within a framework
• Great team leader, with a proven track record of managing high performing teams of staff and volunteers
• Creative and innovative thinking. You’ll need to have a flair for engaging with people at all levels
• The ability to use your initiative, and to take control of managing your own workload
• Excellent communication skills, the ability to communicate via a number of channels with a wide range of internal and external customers and stakeholders
• Understand audience development, in particular current and future trends
• The ability to manage budgets, in order to deliver the project on time and on budget
• Empathy for working in a historic building or conservation environment, and the integrated challenges
• Influencing and negotiating skills, comfortable with managing the delivery through people
