Are you inspired by an opportunity to manage projects and programmes of work that will have a real impact on communities within the Liverpool City Region?

As a Project Manager or Junior Project Manager for the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority we will support your professional and career development, offering the opportunity to deliver a range of exciting and high profile projects across Transport, Digital, Housing, Spatial Planning, Energy & Environment, Culture and Homelessness.

The Mayoral Programme Delivery Team at the Combined Authority is central to the development and delivery of a diverse range of high-profile, large-scale projects and programmes.  We have developed a standardised project management framework, utilising industry recognised project management methodologies, tools and templates to ensure our projects are delivered consistently and to a high standard.  We act as champions for the profession across the City Region and are passionate about delivering high quality projects for the City Region.

You will deliver projects to time, budget and standard, working as part of a team but also as an individual on your own initiative.  You can influence stakeholders and build relationships, can demonstrate financial awareness and budget management expertise, and will compile and present concise reports to audiences that may range from the political, the professional and the public.

We are seeking to establish a talent pool of project management professionals from which we can recruit over a period of 12 months.  If you have the experience and skills we are looking for you will be shortlisted and interviewed as part of this exercise, and we will then approach successful candidates over the next 12 months with offers of employment, as and when projects receive approval to proceed.  We have a healthy pipeline of projects and access to significant funding, and therefore we are preparing now so that we are ready to respond to the challenges and opportunities of the future.  We have a number of positions available now, both permanent and fixed term contract, which we are seeking to recruit to immediately.

In return, as well as a competitive salary, we also offer a range of fantastic benefits, such as:

  • Choice of a staff Travel Card providing free travel within the Liverpool City Region on buses, trains and ferries, or a Fast Tag pass for the Mersey Tunnels with 470 journeys per annum
  • Off peak Travel Card for your spouse or partner
  • 28 days holiday per annum, plus bank holidays and an additional 5 days upon completion of 5 years continuous service
  • Access to the local government pension scheme

At the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority we encourage candidates to discuss flexible working options at any stage of the recruitment process.

The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority is committed to having a workforce that is representative of the communities we serve.  To this end, we particularly welcome applicants from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Backgrounds as we are under-represented by people from these communities

Please note that due to current government restrictions surrounding COVID-19, we are only accepting applications electronically at this time.
