Client Project Manager, Masterplan (Fixed Term)

As the principal museum of the University of Cambridge and the largest cultural venue in the region, The Fitzwilliam Museum acts as a crucial bridge between the University, the City and the rest of the world, and has an international reputation for extraordinary research, world class exhibitions, award-winning public programmes and significant collections spanning many cultures and centuries. The Fitzwilliam Museum collection comprises 500,000 objects, displayed in galleries or housed in storage. The Hamilton Kerr Institute (HKI) is one of the world's leading centres for teaching and research in conservation and heritage science.

In this role you will have a unique opportunity to plan, manage and deliver projects that will transform the Fitzwilliam Museum, including the Hamilton Kerr Institute, as part of the Masterplan programme. Based at the Fitzwilliam Museum, you will work with Masterplan, Exhibitions and colleagues across the Museum and the Hamilton Kerr Institute, and in close collaboration with University Estates colleagues, to play a central role in delivering the Masterplan. You will represent internal requirements to manage specific projects in a live museum environment through the complete lifecycle from brief definition through construction and fit-out to handover. You will be responsible for ensuring museum workstreams such as gallery content, object conservation and operational packages are delivered to agreed time, cost and quality standards and that projects are integrated with site operations. As a member of the Masterplan, Exhibition and Design division, you will also be part of a dynamic team of programme and project managers at the Museum, sharing knowledge and expertise, training, establishing common practices and structures, and working collaboratively across the whole programme of Masterplan projects and strategic objectives. We are seeking someone who has experience of excellent project management, managing multi-disciplinary teams of consultants, working to the RIBA design stages and scoping and managing budgets. The role holder will be someone with outstanding communication skills, a collaborative and inclusive working style and a proven ability to build effective working relationships with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders.

In return we offer an encouraging and supportive environment, an attractive pension scheme, generous holiday allowance and many employee benefits such as a shopping discounts scheme.

To help support our staff to thrive both professionally and personally, we have adopted a system of hybrid working, meaning staff are empowered to split their time between in-person collaboration and remote working. The frequency of remote working may vary due to project needs and will be subject to discussion with your line manager.
