London Stadium Published 1 week ago


London Stadium are looking for a Senior Project Manager to join the team. The successful candidates will be supporting the Head of Capital Projects and the wider Technical and Operations teams on all matters. The role covers capital investment, lifecycle projects and venue transitions for multiple events (including football, baseball, concert, athletics).

You will be working with the Head of Capital Projects to ensure that all projects are suitably delivered from inception to completion and post completion monitoring. You will work with stadium contractors, as well as West Ham United, Major League Baseball, UK Athletics and concert promoters.

The role will also involve close working with the Stadium facilities management contractor (Vinci FM) to ensure the stadium lifecycle and maintenance needs are met.

This role requires an experienced Project Manager used to working at a senior level. An ability to work to tight deadlines and budgets is essential, as is an ability to work with multiple stakeholders with differing priorities.

The successful candidate for this role will have a track record and qualifications relevant to effective Project Management. Knowledge of Stadia operations and football, concerts and other major events will be an advantage, but not a pre-requisite.

We lead in promoting a diverse and inclusive range of events, liaising with a variety of partners, staff across the venue and visitors. In this role, we are looking for a talented individual with relevant lived/work experience of working with diverse communities like those we serve in east London.

A candidate with experience and passion about addressing climate change and environmental sustainability will be advantageous.

This is an exciting opportunity to work at an iconic, multi-purpose venue. You will be a valued member of the team who will contribute to the success of the stadium. Your role does not require regular event day work, but you will have the opportunity to get involved in other aspects of the business. We can guarantee no two days will be the same, and you will get a wide range of experience that develop your skills and abilities.

Please note that events take place all year round, and at different times and days, so you may be required to work early mornings, evenings and weekends. 

Please see specific duties and requirements in the Role Profile and Person Specification below.
