Project Manager - Open Data

We are looking for a professional and dynamic hands-on project manager to
manage a portfolio of projects at Open Knowledge - an international,
world-leading non-profit working on open data.  The project management
style will need to fit within our creative and innovative atmosphere, and
should help us retain organisational flexibility and agility.

The projects requiring management will vary, but in general will range from
£25k/several months/1-2 team members, to £500k+/several years/4-6 team
members. Some projects will involve substantial software design and
delivery and require good technical understanding and the ability to manage
a technology delivery project. In general the project teams are made up of
specialists who have a good sense of the area of work and may be able to be
the public face of the project; the key role of the project manager is to
ensure planning, delivery, tracking and reporting occurs reliably and to a
good standard.

Open Knowledge's partners and clients include national government bodies,
NGOs, and organisations such as the World Bank. Projects funded by grants
are delivered for philanthropic foundations, the European Commission (eg.
through the FP7/H2020 programme) and others.
