Great Britain’s gambling industry is in a constant state of change, fuelled by shifting consumer behaviour and the rapid growth of technology. It’s high profile politically too, and the legislation controlling gambling is constantly under scrutiny. Within this uniquely challenging and evolving environment, The Gambling Commission’s role is to ensure that gambling is crime free, fair and open - and that children and vulnerable people are protected. Now they need you to play a key role in their future, driving the change needed to ensure that the Gambling Commission can meet the growing complexity of the market and their developing regulatory remit.

The Gambling Commission are now looking for a Project Analyst to join them on a fixed-term contract until the end of June 2018 to work on an important project that focuses on the National Lottery.

- Assist with the development of project and programme plans
- Liaise with the wider team to deliver quality and assurance activities
- Work with the Project Director and stakeholders to help manage and mitigate risk
- Help to maintain a range of project documentation
- Assist with the reporting of key management information

To be considered, you will need experience of the following:

- Project management methodologies and delivery methods, such as PRINCE2
- Providing support to a variety of key stakeholders on a large project
- Risk, issue and dependency management across a complex programme
- Working with project teams and key personnel to provide support, communicate key messages and obtain information
- Delivering MI reporting for various senior stakeholders
- Using SharePoint

Organised and meticulous, as a Project Analyst, you’ll have excellent communication skills and the ability to build strong working relationships at senior levels. Superb decision-making abilities and a collaborative approach to problem-solving are also key.
