Please note: this secondment opportunity is available to current employees at the University of Leeds only.

Salary: Grade 6 (£30,487 to £36,024 p.a. depending on experience)

This role will be based on the University campus, with scope for it to be undertaken in a hybrid manner. We are also open to discussing flexible working arrangements.

Are you interested in working in a role to support the governance of a multi-million pound portfolio? Do you thrive on working in a complex environment? If so, this is an exciting opportunity for you to make a real difference to the management of strategic change initiatives in a world-class organisation.

The University of Leeds has a new and ambitious strategic plan. You will join an influential team playing a pivotal role in supporting senior leaders across the University in the implementation and delivery of the plan through providing specialist portfolio governance services.

Working as an integral member of the Transformation Office's Delivery Assurance Team, you will use your knowledge and experience to provide proactive governance support across the portfolio, ensuring clear structures and information flow. This role will drive the quality of documentation prepared for the University's Executive and senior team members, ensuring accurate and timely information to support delivery and decision-making. You will have the opportunity to engage with senior leaders and take responsibility for ensuring a comprehensive and consistent secretariat service.

Your ability to build strong relationships and work collaboratively with colleagues across the University will be crucial to ensure an effective and streamlined governance approach. You will need an ability to balance priorities and deal with complex information, alongside excellent communication skills in order to succeed. Working with limited supervision, the ability to organise and work to deadlines will be critical to the success of the role.
