Job Vacancy: Project Manager for Oxford University Museums store move

Project Manager
Oxford University Museums, Parks Road, Oxford
Grade 7: £30,738 - £37,768 p.a.
An experienced Project Manager is required to take overall responsibility for coordinating the preparation and movement of reserve museum collections from their current location into two other locations, and for working with University Estates to deliver a suitable storage facility.

The Project Manager (PM) will work with staff of the four University Museums to plan and deliver the removal of a range of museum collections from the Old Power Station (OPS), within budget and within a defined timescale. The largest collections in the OPS are cared for by the Pitt Rivers Museum and the Museum of the History of Science but some material cared for by the Ashmolean and the OU Museum of Natural History is also held there. Each collection has distinct requirements and the PM will need to work with museum staff (who will prepare and pack artefacts) to be sensitive to the needs of the collections for movement and re-storage and, if necessary, to manage expectations as to what the project can deliver.
This is a complex project requiring the PM to liaise closely with museum staff to facilitate and support the preparation of artefacts for the move, planning logistics required for the process, and also to represent museum requirements to University Estate Services. The PM will be first point of contact for the Museums for Estates Services which includes Security, Repairs and Maintenance, minor and capital works. He/she will be responsible for ensuring that a properly scoped and budgeted plan is prepared and delivered. The PM will also be responsible for health and safety and security for all the spaces involved in the project.
This post is fixed-term until 31 December 2017.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 26 January 2016 can be considered. You will be required to upload a full CV and supporting statement as part of your online application. Interviews are planned for Tuesday 16 February 2016.
