Vacancy: Project Manager for Whole School SEND

News - 12 Aug 2019

We have a new exciting opportunity to join the Whole School SEND team as Project Manager.

Too many children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) do not achieve their educational potential. To change this we need your help! 

This is an exciting fixed term role for an individual with outstanding project management skills. If you are an experienced and successful project manager with excellent planning, budgeting, contract management and delivery skills then we want to hear from you.

Whole School SEND is a consortium of schools, organisations and individuals committed to improving outcomes and experiences for children and young people with SEND. Whole School SEND is hosted by nasen, a membership charity committed to helping all individuals with SEND to achieve their full potential.

Our work has multiple project streams and involves delivery partners made up of 100s of third sector organisations, schools, teachers, parents and young people with SEND. Effective project management and excellent attention to detail is essential to ensure that we achieve our aims and deliver the best outcomes for children and young people with SEND.

In this role you will support the delivery of the Department for Education funded Whole School SEND programme, implemented across England. You will be responsible for the effective and efficient project management across multiple varied contract strands and support subcontracted consortium members. This will involve engaging with consortium members to ensure that we can improve things for as many children with SEND as possible.

In return you will have the opportunity to contribute to the successful delivery of a multi-million-pound government contract and work with a passionate and dynamic team. You will report to the Whole School SEND Senior Contract Manager and will have the opportunity to get involved with a range of other project work on a project-by-project basis.
