This is a great opportunity to grow your experience and develop your career further towards either Project Management, Business Analysis and Information Management disciplines.

•    Oversee the administration of Projects’ Investment and Change Control Processes, to provide assurance that all the projects in the portfolio are appropriately governed and changes to baselined deliverables across the portfolio are managed appropriately.
•    Support the continuous improvement of portfolio management arrangements; including procedures, guidance notes and governance structures.
•    Support the Delivery Assurance and Governance Lead in Assurance meetings, deep dives, collaterals and plan reviews.
•    Assure and oversee Programme/Projects risks and issues management, assumptions and dependencies, supporting Programme/Project managers identifying root causes and recovery plans. 
•    Regularly attend ARB, ensuring supporting documentation is available in advance of the Board and attendances, actions, decisions and minutes are recorded and distributed, and status monitored and updated.
•    Support Portfolio governance activities by providing a secretariat to the Portfolio Control Group.


The Skills


•    Solid analytical skills, with the ability to interpret multiple sources of complex data to draw conclusions and derive recommendations.
