About the role
The Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) is responsible for transforming Greater Cambridge through a City Deal aimed at unlocking the economic growth potential of the area over the coming decades and realising thousands of new jobs and homes.
The development and delivery of major transport infrastructure is vital to the future economic wellbeing of Greater Cambridge. The GCP Transport programme is a cornerstone of the City Deal initiative and aims to develop a sustainable transport network for Greater Cambridge that keeps people, business and ideas connected as the area continues to grow.
As an Assistant Project Manager, you will be working on developing projects, including walking, cycling and public transport schemes and ensuring their continued success. You will be working with a team of experienced project managers from varying backgrounds coming together to deliver key infrastructure projects for the Greater Cambridge area. An exciting environment where you will be encouraged to work independently and develop your skills and experience.
The postholder requires knowledge, understanding and experience of project management, procurement and contract management. In addition, the postholder requires excellent communications skills and the ability to facilitate a range of diverse stakeholder groups.
The Greater Cambridge Partnership offers completely flexible working arrangements which includes remote/home working, job share and part time or full-time agreements. Although the office for the Greater Cambridge Partnership, subject to Covid-19 restrictions, will continue to be in Greater Cambridge, we are very flexible on location and working pattern, and actively encourage flexible working.
We’re proud to be an inclusive and equal opportunities employer, committed to hiring people based on attitude and merit, regardless of gender identity or expression, ethnic origin, nationality, religion or beliefs, sexual orientation, disability status or any other protected characteristic. We’re committed to building a culturally diverse workforce and therefore encourage applications from groups that are underrepresented within the council.
