London, UK
Experience Level
Desired Skills
  • Excellent project management skills, ideally in a context of delivering trials and/or other research. We're looking for someone who can help us manage complex field trials involving a range of delivery partners
  • Some experience managing portfolios of multiple projects. We think that you'll be more than a project manager in this role - you'll help build the processes and structure that enable CNZ to deliver a programme of work comprising multiple field trials
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills. A big part of the job will be liaising with and persuading internal and external partners to do what is necessary to deliver the trial
  • Knowledge about energy and passion for creating a better future energy system
  • Ensure that trial designs are feasible and make sense for all partners
  • Monitor how partners implement the trial to ensure fidelity to the original trial plans - and support them to do so
  • Manage the time of CNZ team members to ensure we have the right time allocated to each stage of the trial and deliver it on time and to meet trial stakeholders' expectations
  • Help create, maintain, and update project plans and documentation, liaising with CNZ Trials team members and external partners
  • Help create project milestones and budgets
  • Keep track of how projects are progressing against those milestones and budgets
  • Work with the CNZ Trials team to ensure necessary contracts and agreements are in place
  • Manage relationships with external and internal project stakeholders
  • Respond to data requests and coordinate, monitor and organise incoming data
  • Help the team manage its own resource - e.g. building processes to allocate team members' time to projects and track when team members are over or under-resourced)
  • You will work closely with CNZ's Director of Behavioural Insights and other members of CNZ's team to do all of this, but you will have a high degree of autonomy and responsibility to manage the operational logistics of our trials
