At Arden University, we pride ourselves on being true innovators, disruptors and pioneers. Our focus is to promote life-long learning and ensure that everyone, everywhere can access higher education.
We’re looking for a Project Analyst/Junior Project Manager to join our Project Management Office (PMO) and support our business leaders in managing their small to medium-sized projects that align with our growth strategy and improve student success.
You’ll use a mix of project management and business analysis skills to help teams implement their projects, liaising with stakeholders to identify requirements, define scope, and create project plans. You’ll work with a team of Project/Product management and Business Analyst specialists who will guide your development and support your on-the-job training.
We’re looking for someone who gets the job done! As a successful candidate, you’ll have experience in delivering projects and strong communication skills. Training in project management or business analysis would be great, but not essential.
You don’t necessarily need experience in higher education, but it would be desirable. You must be a creative problem solver with high attention to detail, able to organise groups of people assertively while still being a good team player. As a self-starter, you’ll take initiative with the support of a team of experts who will guide your development.
At Arden, you will become a part of a passionate and dedicated team who are committed to removing unnecessary barriers to learning and making education more accessible. Our people work hard to ensure our students journeys are the best they can possibly be, as such we want to reward our people with fantastic benefits. Employees benefit from:
- 30 days holiday, add the bank holiday on top, and we even throw in Christmas closure
- A generous Aviva pension plan, our contributions start at 7%
- PMI or Healthcare Cashback (dependent on role grade)
- Study any Arden course for free, with generous discount for all family and friends
- Our ‘Golden Ticket’ which allows you to gift anyone in your life a free Arden education
- Plus, other competitive benefits!
Stand out, Progressive, Accessible, Resourceful, Kindness, reflect who we are as an institution, a team and as individuals. If they also reflect you and you are excited by the chance to be the driving, creative force within a growing business, we want to hear from you.
There has never been a more exciting time to join Arden University, as we expand into new disciplines and locations. For the full job description, click here, or to start your journey with us, click apply!
