We’re busy installing Smart meters for all our customers and this is a golden opportunity for you to play a key role in ensuring this programme is a success.  You’ll provide support and guidance to drive the core Portfolio Office functions including planning, reporting, change control, document management and resource demand management.

You’ll have the ability to prioritise effectively in a high pressure environment and should be skilled at tracking a high number of projects simultaneously.  You should be proficient in Microsoft Office applications, specifically Project and Visio.   You should be qualified in PRINCE2, a qualification in P3O would be a distinct advantage.
