Project Manager (Whole Body Vibrations & Noise)
RNLI Headquarters, Poole, Dorset
£45,500 - £53,529 (dependent on experience)
The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea.
The RNLI is looking for an experienced multi-disciplined Project Manager to lead our Whole Body Vibration, Noise and Anthropometrics Project to address the risks associated with ‘whole body vibration’ and noise as well as the associated anthropometric and human factor issues that affect how our people interact with equipment while delivering a world class rescue service.
By the nature of our activities, we expose people to ‘whole body vibration’ and noise, both on land and while afloat. Although there are engineering controls that are always under review and continuous on-going improvements within our engineering department, these alone cannot reduce risk to acceptable levels by themselves. Behaviours, attitudes, individual characteristics and understanding of the risks all play a pivotal part in safe operation of our vessels and associated equipment. This project will ensure all these factors are addressed and our people have the right level of understanding and act in appropriate ways for the conditions they find themselves in to ensure that risks are reduced to an acceptable level whilst undertaking our critical work of saving lives.
As a Project Manager, your role will include the day-to-day running of the project to deliver requirements as well as the usual project management activities of planning, monitoring, reporting, escalating, etc. in accordance with the RNLI Project Management processes based on standard project methodologies (PRINCE2 / MSP).
You will need to co-ordinate cross-stream activities and create a holistic, sustainable approach to managing the risks associated with exposure to ‘whole body vibration’, noise and related anthropometric and human factor issues to ensure the RNLI meets its moral and legal obligations to our volunteers and employees. This will involve managing and co-ordinating activities across the whole organisation including engineering, asset management, human resources, training, occupational health, operational policy and lifesaving delivery. This role will also involve collaborating with external organisations to investigate best practices in other sectors and share learning as appropriate.
To be considered, you will need:
- Substantial senior experience in delivering large scale Business Improvement Programmes with tangible outputs and benefits
- Knowledge of both theoretical and practical aspects of project and programme management
- Experience of the whole programme lifecycle, from the scoping through to implementation and benefits Realisation
- The ability to motivate the organisation and project team to meet stretch deadlines
- A project management Practitioner Qualification, such as a PRINCE2 and/or MSP
- A full, valid driving licence
The role is based on an initial 36 month contract to be based from our Poole HQ site reporting to the SHE Policy Manager. There will be requirement for occasional travel as part of the programme.
Our staff and volunteers have been saving lives at sea without prejudice for nearly 200 years. We respect and value diversity of background, skills and perspectives within our teams, and consider it essential to help us deliver a world-class lifesaving service. We are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from everyone. In addition to having the skills needed for the role, we also look for applicants who share our commitment to living our RNLI values (trustworthy, courageous, selfless, and dependable), and helping us work towards our goals of halving drowning in the UK and Ireland by 2024. This involves a growing commitment to preventative action, using our expertise to work in partnership with communities locally, nationally and internationally to prevent drowning.
