At Frazer-Nash, we want all of our people to feel they belong, confident in the knowledge that we value and respect the commitment they have made by entrusting their careers and expertise to us.

We are committed to fostering a working culture that brings out the very best in our people, regardless of their circumstances, identity or background. We want our people to be themselves, feel empowered to achieve their personal and professional goals, and know that we respect the unique value they bring to the company. In support of this, we encourage thoughtful behaviours and work to foster a collaborative working environment.

As part of our P&MC team, you will find yourself working across all of our markets, from large and complex defence programmes to some of the largest infrastructure programmes in Europe.

In all cases, you will develop and adapt your knowledge, skills and methodologies to meet the needs of our clients, drawing on your expertise to enable their success.

You will have developed a strong understanding of best practice in project management competencies such as schedule management, resource management, budgeting and cost control and be a skilled project controller and/or project scheduler.

You will have demonstrable practitioner experience of the market leading scheduling tools (such as MS Project and Primavera P6) and the relevant interfaces to enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications (such as SAP ERP). You will also have advanced skills in manipulating project data and creating excellent project information to communicate key aspects of project performance.

As well as your P3M expertise, you will also be a strong communicator, natural problem-solver and valued member of any team. Our success is borne out of our commitment to our clients and the strong relationships we form with them and their teams. We care deeply about our clients’ success and pride ourselves on being trusted by them to support projects and programmes that really matter.
