About the role

You will work closely with delivery managers to produce and maintain project documents such as highlight reports, budget trackers, risk and issue logs, action logs, resource and implementation plans, timesheets, meeting agendas, meeting minutes and notes. You will also take the lead on setting up project governance meetings, working with the delivery manager to set agendas and ensure that all administration associated with meetings is seamlessly managed and communicated.

You will take meeting minutes and notes, updating action logs, risk and issue logs and ensuring that documentation is promptly and accurately circulated to all key stakeholders.

You will “own” all project procurement activity through the processing of purchase requisitions, purchase orders and goods receipts transactions in SAP. The role also involves assisting delivery managers with the compilation of reports and presentations. Finally, you’ll be acting as central contact for contract, project and delivery information, knowledge, processes, and systems.

About you

We need someone with experience of working within a contract delivery or project environment, with excellent administrative skills that include diary management, minute taking, planning, and monitoring of processes.

You must have excellent numerical, verbal and written communication skills, and great attention to detail. You must also be approachable and knowledgeable, the go-to-person for anything and everything team and project related. You will also be able to work well under pressure, maintaining focus and accuracy when working to tight deadlines.
