Senior Project Manager

(Full time)

The senior project manager leads the buried networks project team. They are responsible for the day-to-day management of project managers who are themselves managing projects to install buried heat network pipes throughout the city of Bristol. Our role in these projects is as the “Client”. We manage ITT processes and prepare the Scopes of Work for the tenders. Once in contract we manage the necessary permits and participate in the CDM meetings. The senior project manager sits across multiple projects and is active in “stepping in” when necessary, steering projects through good contractor management and, with their excellent knowledge and experience, delivering construction projects. They work with multiple teams and supporting functions such as the planner, contracts manager and business development team, each project manager of a specific project team reporting directly to them. Senior PMs do not duplicate the work of project managers but provide a higher level and wider scope of management to projects and project teams as well as to the organisation they belong. They have the authority to run projects on a day-to-day basis and delegate tasks to individual project managers. The Senior PM reports to the Head of Delivery & Operations on all project issues as well as laterally to the Area Project Manager for updates and support.

The senior project manager is responsible for ensuring all projects are successful in their development and through into the delivery phase and meeting the project objectives set out in the Financial Investment Decision. This includes working with the area PM to take the projects through governance. Projects run from initial concept through to successful integration into our operations team and adoption as an operational asset. Vattenfall owns and operates all heat network assets.

Through delivery, the senior pm will audit the projects and check compliance with internal processes and in doing so will develop internal processes for more efficient project delivery.

You will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day management of the portfolio of projects in the Bristol region ensuring they are delivered safely, and to the required time, budget, and quality. You will have a construction background and have worked as a Principal Contractor and/or client. Ideally, you will have experience delivering buried utilities in live urban areas with strong contract management experience, excellent leadership and the highest standards of Health & Safety.
