Graduate Project Coordinator (Strategic Planning and Change)

We're seeking a candidate for the role of Graduate Project Coordinator within Strategic Planning and Change who can work well in a team and get involved in all aspects of our strategic projects, initiatives and processes.

Department: Strategic Planning and Change
Team: Business Transformation 
Location: City Campus
Salary: £23,500 p.a.

We are currently recruiting for a Graduate Project Coordinator to join the team to support our work in delivering strategic planning and change activities across NTU. You’ll be joining a forward-thinking team who are responsible for making Nottingham Trent University (NTU) strategy a reality.

The role is based in the Business Transformation team, within Strategic Planning and Change and you will be working with Professional Services to deliver NTU's strategic ambition to create the University, reimagined.

We are looking for a proactive, enthusiastic and passionate individual who is highly organised with good attention to detail and strong interpersonal communication skills. Experience of working with a range of people to design and deliver successful projects would be advantageous, but not essential. We need someone who can work well in a team and get involved in all aspects of our strategic projects, initiatives and processes.

This role is part of NTU’s Graduate Development Programme, offering you an extensive range of development opportunities. The programme is personalised and tailored to your skill set to help you:

  • improve your workplace skills
  • advance your leadership skills
  • build your confidence
  • provide you with employment experience.

Please refer to the job description and person specification when completing your application to demonstrate how you meet the requirements for the role. 

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-European Economic Area (EEA) candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the University is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test.

UK Visas and Immigration, part of the Home Office, requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post.

For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

All shortlisted candidates will be invited to an assessment centre on Monday 8 April 2020.

Don’t forget, you can get support from the NTU Employability Team for all stages of the recruitment process. Visit their website or email for more information.

Please email our team if you have any general queries in relation to the Graduate Development Programme or the requirements.
