Working on cutting-edge, global programmes, the Project Officer, under the direction of the Programme or Project Manager, is responsible for carrying out a variety of project management tasks and activities to support the overall project plan.
You'll be working across different departments, interfacing between the project and internal functional business areas, and engaging with external stakeholders such as the MOD and suppliers. Therefore, strong communication and presentation skills, and the ability to build effective and credible relationships is essential.
As there are a number of positions within different teams, we are considering a range of backgrounds, but a technical/engineering/manufacturing/industrial degree or background would be useful, along with previous experience in any of the following: strategic sourcing, business planning, budget control, supply chain/procurement/vendor management, product development. However, what is important is that you are self-motivated and tenacious, with exceptional organisation and influencing skills, as you'll play a significant role in making things happen to achieve project deliverables.
