Business and programme management

Business and programme management

The Royal Docks is a complex and exciting project, one that requires strategic direction and people who can help us to develop and manage transformative regeneration programmes. Join us in one of these hands-on roles, and you’ll work closely with GLA teams, the London Borough of Newham, public and private sector funding partners, and local organisations to oversee and create the programmes that will shape the future of the area.

Back to jobs.

  • The opportunity

    You’ll help us keep track of the diverse range of projects and programmes under way within the Royal Docks Enterprise Zone. That means implementing and managing a comprehensive performance management and evaluation framework, and providing detailed analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data for the Royal Docks boards. Your role will be key to performance management and reporting, ensuring we stay within budget and on schedule, address risks and ultimately achieve value for money.

    The person

    You’ll be familiar with the key principles of monitoring and evaluation relating to programme or performance management. Specifically, you’ll have experience of generating and evaluating statistical data and management information, as well as knowledge of the use of key performance indicators. Well-developed IT skills are essential, and you’ll have advanced proficiency in Microsoft Excel. Your good organisational and planning abilities will be matched by experience of report writing and excellent communication skills.

  • The opportunity

    From organising meetings and travel to analysing data, ordering office supplies to preparing reports and presentations, this is a hugely varied administrative role within a dynamic and fast-changing organisation. You’ll support a diverse range of projects and people, ensuring everything runs smoothly. It’s a great opportunity to learn about project and programme management and to hone your organisational skills.

    The person

    We’re looking for someone with a level head and plenty of initiative. You’re likely to have some experience in a secretarial, administrative, or business support role, and must be fully computer-literate with a good level of proficiency in Microsoft applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. If you have some knowledge of project management systems or databases, so much the better. Flexibility and good communication skills are also essential.
