An exciting role exists within the Technical Division of the Diamond Light Source for a Project Planner and Management Support Officer. Reporting directly to the Technical Director, this post is at the heart of the engineering work at Diamond, with significant freedom to bring your ideas and initiative to bear on the project management process.
You will produce plans for each of the five accelerator shutdowns each year, interacting collaboratively with our technical experts, spanning a wide-range of technologies, to capture and plan their tasks taking account of durations, resources and interconnecting logic. As well as this focus on the detail of shutdowns, you will also look forwards to the whole of the accelerator engineering programme, balancing the workload on our staff across future months and years.
There is also a significant project workload to be planned, including a massive new project, Diamond-II, which will replace the accelerators over the coming years with a new design to achieve even brighter X-ray beams. You will be able to use your professional project management skills to support and guide Diamond's project managers and their teams over the whole project life cycle.
If you have a wider project and operations planning experience, a logical mind and methodical approach, excellent record keeping skills and a genuine desire to work as part of the bigger team as one of the key players, then we want to hear from you.
