Infrastructure Project Manager - Bioinformatics

Paramount are working in partnership with Genomics England to expand their team in order to deliver success with the 100,000 Genomes Project. This is a challenging and fast moving project with the aim to carry out whole genome sequencing on 100,000 participants. Genomics England works with key partners to collect, transport, store, quality check and sequence the samples from participants. The aim for this project is to create a new genomic medicine service for the NHS - transforming the way people are cared for. Patients may be offered a diagnosis where there wasn't one before. In time, there is the potential of new and more effective treatments.

This includes acquiring resources and coordinating the efforts of team members and third-party contractors or consultants in order to deliver projects according to plan. The Technical Project Manager will also define the project's objectives and oversee quality control throughout its life cycle.

The ideal candidate will have a strong academic background coming from a redbrick university as well as having up to 5 years experience in infrastructure project management.

Key Accountabilities
*Drive the end-to-end delivery of projects to time, cost and quality criteria
*Manage Platform Engineering dependencies received from other project teams, including hardware and software solutions
*Develop and own the plan for the project. Manage progress against plan, budget and resource requirements to achieve project objectives

*Proactively manage risks, assumptions, issues and dependencies, ensuring that these are identified, mitigated or escalated as necessary to achieve key milestones
*Identify potential changes to project scope and manage via the change control process
*Clarify roles and expectations for all project participants and hold partners, suppliers and colleagues to account
*Provide reporting on project status at the agreed frequency. Produce materials for project governance groups
*Develop and implement a communications plan to engage key stakeholders within and outside of Genomics England to drive their sustained and active commitment to success
*Manage suppliers and lead tender and selection processes where required
*Support the management of contracts with partners and suppliers to meet key performance indicators and agreed targets
*Experience of managing diverse projects and large initiatives
*Strong record of leadership and successful delivery of complex projects across multiple stakeholder groups while under tight timelines
* Vibrant, enthusiastic and hard-working
* Candidates should be willing to thrive in a diverse and fluid environment
