Job Description


Senior Project Manager - Programme Management
Waverley Court

Salary: £37,589 - £44,934
Hours: 36 per week

Would you like to help Edinburgh deliver its ambitious programme of investment in walking and cycling, public realm and street improvements as it works towards its City Mobility Plan 2021-2030?

We are looking for a Senior Project Manager to manage our programme of projects through consultation, design and implementation. You would be leading a small team taking an overview of project scopes and managing programme budgets, timescales and associated risks - working closely with our highly-motivated and growing Active Travel Team to take forward the programme.

The programme involves implementing on-street segregated cycleways, pedestrian and public realm upgrades; and off-street cycle/walking routes. The projects involved are mainly on-street, including transformation of city centre streets, cycle tracks on suburban roads and reconfiguring junctions, but also include some new structures and associated landscaping on off-street routes.

You should have:

  • a relevant degree, and extensive relevant experience;
  • experience of managing the delivery of a portfolio of projects, preferably similar in nature, and preferably a qualification in programme management
  • project management experience, preferably involving delivery of similar projects; and
  • knowledge of the issues, opportunities and problems associated with implementing engineering projects in an urban area, particularly on-street.

Most of the team are currently working from home, but it’s possible to apply to work full or part-time from the Council’s office at Waverley Court for practical or welfare reasons. The Council is currently considering options for the longer term - there is likely to be flexibility in relation to working from home or the office.

We are also advertising for three Senior Project Manager – Active Travel posts and a Senior Project Manager - Programme Delivery. If you are interested in more than one of the jobs, please apply for each one separately.

We're committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.

Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range.  For roles in grade 5 or above, annual increments in our contribution zones are dependent on achieving agreed performance goals.
