We are seeking two Project & Stakeholder Managers
You will play a critical role in identifying and maintaining the interest of stakeholders, private and public, local and national, large and small, who are willing and able to engage in the work of the Centre as well as be responsible for project management. Digital standards training will be given by the Centre’s Training partner, the Institute of Export and International Trade. Accountabilities will be direct to the Director of the Centre based in London so an ability to hit the ground running and effectively motivate and manage yourself will be essential.
The roles will work within a small, co-located team based at Teesside University in Middlesbrough. The roles will entail two core functions:
• Identify, engage and manage a diverse range of stakeholders from government and the private sector to ensure all projects and activities are delivered to the highest standard
• Coordinate and manage digital trade research and pilot projects including the consistent application of the Centre Playbook model.
Innovation will be front and centre of all the work of the Team and the roles will suit people who are innovative in their thinking, while also having a clear sense of what is deliverable and scalable in the context of global trade and the circumstances of the UK.
