We are looking for a Project Manager Apprentice with a ‘can do’ attitude to join our Programme Delivery team in the Intelligence UK business area at Airbus Defence and Space.
As the successful candidate you could be working on the development of systems to support new satellite imagery processing chains, the migration of our products and services to cloud hosted environments or managing the development of a brand new product or service in its entirety.
You will feel equally at home in a fast paced challenging environment or at times when the challenge is to keep your project moving forwards when things are a little slower paced.
Everything is somewhere! We use the power of geospatial information and satellite imagery to address some of the biggest challenges faced by society today: climate change, sustainability, agriculture, energy, finance, public safety, maritime surveillance, and defence.
From operating state-of-the-art satellites, to helping fire-fighters get the right information to target their efforts at the scene.
Our teams are made up of diverse expertise from across many disciplines, bringing a unique opportunity to work with individuals who are truly passionate about what they do.
The UK Intelligence Programme delivery team is a group of high performing and flexible Project Management professionals who work across all teams to deliver projects that push the boundaries of technology to help address users’ needs by providing products and services that help our customers to increase security, optimise mission planning, improve management of resources and protect our environment across wide variety of applications which include maritime surveillance, precision agriculture, emergency response and environmental monitoring.
We use Agile, Waterfall and hybrid methodologies as appropriate to deliver our projects.
You will work as a member of the programme delivery team alongside our experienced programme and project managers to support our top company objective ‘enable the future’ by ensuring we deliver on our programmes and services.
No two days will be the same; you will be working on projects which can vary in complexity and duration across a variety of market domains. You will develop the skills to manage end to end project delivery, to manage and steer all aspects of a project working closely with other teams to align and coordinate requirements, timeframes and resources.
You will gain experience of managing competing demands, adapting quickly to changing priorities, communicating effectively across a wide variety of stakeholders and quickly building strong working relationships.
In addition to the Apprentice training programme, you will become a member of the Airbus programme management community with access to comprehensive project management support network and training programmes to support your development path and ensure you are equipped with the skills needed to excel at your job including an internal project management certification programme closely linked to the Project Management Institute (PMI™).
