About The Opportunity

Carey’s has always pioneered new innovative ways of working and leading the way in our industry, technology, methodology, equipment, and health and safety, continuously raising the bar and setting the standard amidst our industry competitors.

As we near 50 years in operation, our strategy is committed to developing our people to be the inspiration that leads all Carey teams to achieve the highest performance successes.

Challenging the traditional models of Learning and Development, we have embarked on a complex, ambitious individual learning journey that has been designed to support and develop our people. Our Leading Edge programme is a huge investment and demonstrates our commitment to developing our people across all disciplines & locations.

We are looking for a Project Manager, with excellent planning and scheduling experience to manage our exciting Leading Edge programme. Comfortable working with variable data in often ambiguous situations, we require a confident individual to lead and implement this complex project across the entire Carey Group.

About You

The role will involve complex scheduling, planning and resourcing of workshops and events for over 5000 Careys staff across the UK and Ireland. To achieve this, you will prioritise building and maintaining relationships by partnering with external stakeholders to secure venues and negotiate rates and agreements so that all our Leading Edge events provide a world class learning experience. You will also take ownership of co-ordinating the facilitators/leaders/mentors frequently and consistently to support the delivery of this programme by implementing a common framework and concept that notably takes a leading edge on participants’ behaviour and leadership style.

This role is not an administration role and requires a high level of leadership with exceptional relationship building skills to deliver the vast complexities that surround our Leading Edge project.

You will be driven to deliver results with precision and perfection within tight deadlines, and confident in managing and reporting on budgets, as well as providing narrative against budget reviews.

In addition, you will thrive on being the ‘go to’ person to answer questions and concerns across the entire business in relation to Leading Edge.

It is essential that you have demonstrable experience in:

- Managing complex delegate logistics, be it across training or event management.

- Project planning and management where you have taken plans from concept and design through to execution and measurement.

This job will take you to many exciting places throughout the UK, therefore flexibility to travel nationally for this role is essential.
