Requirements

Team information:

You will be joining one of our teams based in Bristol, Burton-on-Trent or Leatherhead. Each team has a mix of project management specialisms and experience, but all are characterised by a commitment to help our clients deliver their projects successfully.

Our groups work on a wide range of complex projects across sectors as diverse as energy, transport and defence. Some of our consultants are embedded in client project teams, others work alongside clients to help them solve problems that are holding their projects back. Currently we are providing teams to manage and deliver state-of-the-art research and development programmes in Defence and support the UK government to access the innovation needed to reach net-zero carbon by 2050.

You could be working as an individual within one of these projects or as part of a team setting up and implementing project management capabilities such as Project Management Offices.

What you’ll be doing at Frazer-Nash?

The world today is full of tough questions. Are you ready to be the answer?

  • We are looking for project professionals who, like us, are committed to finding real-world solutions and delivering success for our clients.
  • We believe in a ‘learn by doing’ approach to develop you as a project professional. Under the guidance of experienced project professionals we will give you challenging roles in our projects delivering project management competencies such as cost, schedule and scope management.
  • We will also ask you to provide project management for our projects, putting your skills into practice in real-world projects within our business.
  • You will have a good understanding of the principles of project and programme management and, ideally, some experience of putting them into practice on real-world projects.

You may have an engineering and/or technology background. Whilst this isn’t essential it may well give you an advantage in understanding the context and challenges our clients face

  • What is essential is that you have an enthusiasm for work with teams, helping them organise themselves and deliver their objectives as effectively as possible – that is project management!
  • You should be prepared to travel nationwide, we work within and alongside client project teams and this is often done best face-to-face.

What you’ll need?

We are looking for ambitious, intelligent and inquisitive individuals, who can solve challenging problems. We embrace diversity, innovation and collaboration at Frazer-Nash and provide the opportunity for talented people like you to work on projects that make a difference to our world.

  • Working towards obtaining a degree level qualification 2:1 or above in a relevant discipline such as engineering, project management or business management.
  • Excellent stakeholder engagement skills and the ability to work as part of a team.
  • An understanding of project management principles such as the Association for Project Management (APM) body of knowledge (BOK) or similar.
  • Strong problem-solving and analytical skills.

Desirable:

  • Experience working within a project environment.

The nature of our work means that we sometimes require staff to access Government material, it is therefore necessary for all our employees to gain appropriate security clearance. We will apply for clearance if you have successfully been selected for a position, and we will decide if we can successfully gain full clearance on your behalf based on the content of your application. Any offer of employment is subject to this requirement being met.
