This is a fantastic, highly supportive and friendly team, looking for a driven individual to join them and help continue their success.

The post-holder will be responsible for overall programme management and reporting of sensitive highly complex information, ensuring continuous communication with the Divisional and Workstream leads to ensure the progress of the Programme is accurately reported.
