Company Description

This is an exciting time to join an organisation with an essential role in the UK’s tertiary education sector.

We are a world-leading quality agency with unmatched experience of providing impartial regulatory and collaborative quality assurance and enhancement. We support universities and colleges in working with students and learners, governments, funders and regulatory bodies to evidence and enhance the excellent quality and high standards of the education they provide.

We work towards a greater public understanding - domestically and internationally - of how excellent quality is demonstrated in UK higher education, and how autonomous providers both assure its delivery and address weaknesses. Our work safeguards the value of qualifications for students and learners, and protects and promotes the reputation of higher education.


Responsible for the planning and delivery of QAA projects alongside the Continuous Improvement Manager, this is a key role within the Agency. As well as managing the lifecycle of projects, which includes the management of stakeholders (internal and external), the role is also responsible for ensuring all projects are aligned to our strategy and needs.


We are looking for an experienced project manager, who can demonstrate knowledge of managing business projects including the implementation of IT solutions and software development.

The ideal candidate will be used to working in a lean project management office function with responsibilities for more than one project at a time.
