And making a real difference to people who are travelling to all sorts of places for all sorts of different reasons.  

Technology is the bedrock of our organisation. Our airport would grind to a halt without it. Join us as a Senior Project Leader, and you’ll have the chance to work on projects that shape not only our airport, but also the experiences of countless passengers. For these roles, we look for people who are technically-minded with brilliant attention to detail. You’re someone who can spot when things could go wrong before they actually do go wrong.  This is a very visible role that will draw on your technical and communication skills to the full, but you’ll have all the training and support you need to be at your best and grow those skills, whether that’s in IT or any other part of our business.  

Our Rewards:

As well as competitive salaries, we’re committed to providing a whole host of great benefits that make this an even more rewarding place to work. They include an excellent pension scheme, life assurance, access to private health insurance and, in IT, flexible working. We actively try to create part-time opportunities and use remote technologies to enable people to work from home. We also have a range of initiatives designed to help people in our surrounding communities get to and from work cost-effectively and sustainably, from free travel on local buses through to subsidised rail fares. Not only that, when you get here, we’ll nurture your skills and do all we can to help you reach your full potential.  

Be part of the 78 million passenger journeys we make happen each year. An incredibly important part. 

Your Role Will Involve:

  • Leading the delivery of a portfolio of projects as part of the IT Programme delivery team.
  • Supporting the creation of business cases ensuring business benefits and critical success factors are clearly identified.
  • Ensuring risks to the successful delivery of the business outcomes have been identified and mitigation plans are in place.
  • Providing accurate and timely reporting of project progress by compiling management information on benefit delivery, risk and issues and financials to support assurance and decision-making by the governance forums

We're Looking for People Who Have:

  • Proven experience as a programme manager or has led the delivery of a portfolio of multiple IT projects with a high value
  • Accountability for all aspects of project delivery including financial management and commercial negotiation.
  • Experience of successful engagement with senior and challenging stakeholders
  • A qualification in project management (APM or Prince2)
  • Ability to analyse information and make good decisions in ambiguous or difficult situations
  • Extensive experience in project management processes

Join us, and you’ll have everything you need to shine and explore the countless career destinations that are available here. 

As an equal opportunities employer, we proactively look to employ people who are as diverse as our passengers and all the people who live in our surrounding boroughs. It’s why we encourage applications from people of all backgrounds. We believe that diverse talent makes us stronger – at Heathrow, we’re driven by inclusivity and we celebrate individuality.
