Make the connection.

Project management is all about connections, between colleagues, contractors and, most importantly, end users. As our Project Coordinator – Major Projects, you’ll play a central role in some of our most high-profile schemes. It’s a chance to develop your project management skills, broaden your horizons – and connect families, friends and visitors with places and spaces all across our county.

The role

You’ll support both our Major Projects Manager and Project Manager for Major Infrastructure Projects – coordinating activities, keeping communication flowing and helping us all stay effective as a team. As well as monitoring budgets and advising on policy, legal and regulatory issues, you’ll support colleagues elsewhere in the function and, over time, grow to handle more complex enquiries and escalations yourself.

The team

Our strategic and collaborative Major Projects and Growth Team delivers vital transport, infrastructure and economic growth improvements. Current projects include work on Hastings and Eastbourne town centres, major transport infrastructure improvements to support housing and economic growth in South Wealden and along the A259 coastal corridor, and £70m of county-wide transport and economic infrastructure improvements.

About you

You’ll have smoothly handled a range of projects that required tact and the efficient management of competing demands and priorities. You’ll be used to coordinating others’ workloads as well as your own – and finding innovative solutions that improve processes and delivery. 

We recognise the benefits of supporting our staff to work flexibly and there are a range of ways in which service delivery and personal commitments can be balanced. We offer staff the opportunity to work in a hybrid way where the nature of their job role makes this possible and in a culture that places value on outputs that drive forward our strategic objectives and benefits our residents. However we also recognise the importance of always retaining a strong sense of belonging and team identity Additional benefits include a generous annual leave allowance, access to the Local Government Pension scheme, travel discounts, and more. But it’s the chance to create lasting connections across East Sussex you’ll find most attractive here, whilst being part of an excellent and rewarding team that is directly at the heart of driving sustainable economic growth, improving transport connectivity in the county and achieving net zero carbon emissions.

We make diversity, equity, and inclusion part of everything we do – our projects, our strategies and our workforce. It’s the only way to ensure our county gets the connections it needs and deserves.
