Project Manager

Brought in to Project Manage a Greenfield development of a new Interactive Educational Portal for schools and colleges. This was a renewed contract following successful completion of previous work.


  • Ensured all projects were delivered using PRINCE2 governance (i.e. Business Case, PID, Communications Plan, Status Reports, Issue and Risk logs, variation orders etc)

The product produced was an interactive gateway to allow schools and students to manage university applications and specifically the University Interview Process using Prince2 methodologies. This consisted of interactive training videos and used a large pool of past questions from Oxford and Cambridge Universities and other top institutions. Significant business relationships were also developed, one of which led to the inclusion in a large national campaign supported by Vince Cable PM, James Cann and Richard Branson.

  • Over the project I developed a new business relationship which increased the product reach from 200k to over 7million with a new business partnership. This was achieved by partnering with the Changing Britain: Innovation & Employment initiative and the NUS.
