BUFDG is recruiting for a Project Manager

18 May 2022      Matt Sisson, Projects and Membership Manager

The British Universities Finance Directors Group (BUFDG) is the representative body for higher education finance staff in the United Kingdom. Our members are the Directors of Finance and Chief Financial Officers (and their staff) of almost all UK higher education institutions.

We’re looking for a Projects Manager, based at home (although we do have access to an office in Loughborough if you prefer not to work from home). There will be some travel to BUFDG events or meetings in other parts of the UK. This role will be the lead liaison between BUFDG staff and/or members and external service providers on a number of projects. Typical projects will have impact beyond BUFDG, influencing other management and academic functions in higher education providers, providers of services to the HE sector, government departments and policy. The project manager will ensure projects are delivered on time and with the required outputs. The post-holder will report to the Head of Operations and Engagement and has no staffing responsibilities.

BUFDG is a Professional HE Services Ltd (PHES) organisation and offers a competitive salary between £32,344 and £44,706 pro-rata pa (grade 7), dependent on qualifications and experience. A defined contribution pension scheme is offered with 7.5% employee and 16% employer contribution rates, together with life insurance. We offer 30 days’ holiday (pro rata) plus bank holidays and discretionary days’ office closure. Support for CPD and appropriate training will be given.

We are committed to equality of opportunity, to eliminating discrimination and to creating an inclusive working environment for all. We therefore encourage candidates to apply irrespective of age, disability, marriage or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion and belief, gender identity, sex, or sexual orientation.
