A Volunteer is required to take overall Project Lead for budget, activity planning and configuration control of the new Gladiator exhibit. Lead Engineers will be in place for the three activity packages (landing gear, fuselage, tailplane). The Project Lead will operate with the Lead Engineers to establish an overall practicable plan, monitor progress against that plan and manage any risks that might arise.
A vacancy exists for a Volunteer with experience in (preferably Engineering) Project Management to bring the individual activity packages together to Time, Cost, Quality and provide reporting of progress to the overall Conservation and Restoration Manager.
Full technical support exists within the Team, but any knowledge of aircraft restoration would be welcome although is not essential. Enthusiasm for this important and rewarding task is a key requirement.
