Project Manager – Prudential RideLondon COTY 17

Based in London

Fixed Term Contract: Immediate until August 2017

Starting FTE salary £33,484

3-5 days per week

At Bloodwise, we’re driven by our vision to beat blood cancer, and we’re passionate about supporting patients and delivering the best information and support.  We put the patient at the heart of all that we do. 

Project Manager – Prudential RideLondon

Blood cancer is the fifth most common cancer type and the third biggest cancer killer.  Since 1960 we’ve invested almost half a billion pounds in ground-breaking research that has saved the lives of thousands of children and adults diagnosed with blood cancer.  When we started, childhood leukaemia was virtually a death sentence.  Now, 9 out of 10 children will survive this most common form of childhood cancer. And yet awareness of blood cancer remains low and far too many still die.

Your job will be to manage this project to ensure maximisation of all income and awareness opportunities arising from our partnership with Prudential RideLondon and to ensure we deliver our £400,000 fundraising target. You’ll be responsible for ensuring we have clear, robust project plans and processes, and for co-ordinating our internal teams to deliver both a first class event and partnership with the Prudential RideLondon team, London Marathon Events and their suppliers.

The project will be sponsored by the Director of Fundraising & Marketing, with account management from the corporate partnerships team and event delivery by our sports events team. You will work across all the relevant internal stakeholders making sure deadlines are met and the partnership delivers on its objectives.   

We’d like you to have as many of these as possible:

  • Significant experience of successfully delivering complex projects through their full lifecycle, within a fundraising / marketing / commercial environment. A formal project management qualification (e.g. APMP, ITIL, Prince2) is desirable.
  • Proven experience of establishing projects including defining the outcomes, timescales, costs, quality, governance arrangements, resource requirements and the appropriate project approach
  • You will be used to working within a fast-paced environment and be able to effectively manage risks, issues and dependencies
  • Clear experience of creating strong commercial plans which have generated successful outcomes
  • Ability to clearly communicate the project strategy, plans, objectives and performance measures, progress against plans and budget to all interested and invested parties – tailoring your communications as appropriate to ensure relevance to the audience
  • You will be comfortable working in a matrix environment where your line management will be different from your internal stakeholders
  • Strong teambuilding and management skills with the ability to motivate and lead teams drawn from across Bloodwise and other organisations, including management of external agencies
  • Experience gaining and maintaining engagement with a range of stakeholders both within and outside the organisation, with the ability to influence across all levels of seniority
