An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Programme Manager to join Quality Context based in Sheffield.  Quality Context is a fast moving, networked and ambitious company.  We work hard individually and as a team.  Our clients are important along with the work that we do for them, but we like to have fun.  We raise money for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital because we care.  We set out to walk 75KM because it sounded like a challenge and we enjoy socialising together.

The Opportunity:

We are looking for someone who is organised, driven, confident, enthusiastic and hardworking.  We want someone who excels at organising, prioritising, meeting deadlines and working with others but who can control the portfolio of client projects.

The right candidate will have the experience not only to control the overall delivery by technical professionals and internal staff, of the programme of client projects, but also the capabilities needed to manage the time, resources and budgets necessary to accomplish all interrelated tasks.  Ideally, your experience will be in a commercial environment and you should understand the basics of managing project finances.  You should also have impeccable written and communication skills, including experience of creating and managing trackers and programme reports. 

The role has considerable scope for the successful candidate to acquire new skills and experience in a fast moving business. We guarantee this role will be interesting, challenging and rewarding for the right candidate.

Preferable Skills And Experiences Required:

  • Experience in pharma is desirable but not essential.
  • Qualification in Programme and or Project Management is desirable but not essential.

Having a background in pharma is an advantage, but we are keen to recruit someone who can learn some basic elements of the technical side of the job, but already has proven project and programme management skills.
