Project Manager (Europe)

Location: London, United Kingdom
Salary: Competitive
Reference: MER0001EP

We are Merlin Magic Making and we are part of the magical Merlin Entertainments!

About the job
Merlin Magic Making (MMM) are the creative driving force behind attractions, hotels and resorts enjoyed by guests the round the world. We are currently recruiting for a Project Manager, based in one of our offices within Europe. You’ll get behind the creative team to take our iconic name to the next level – delivering ground-breaking attractions that will put smiles on more faces than ever before.

Working with the MMM Creative team – the geniuses who come up with fresh and exciting ideas for our resorts and attractions right across Europe – you’ll take their fantastic ideas and help to turn them into reality. As well as a clear vision of the plans and knowledge of local authority requirements, you’ll need the credibility to negotiate with stakeholders at all levels and the ability to manage relationships with remote teams in a foreign context – ensuring we deliver on time, within budget and to the highest health and safety specifications. It could be a newly built attraction or a re-model of an existing attraction such as Madame Tussauds, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre, SEA LIFE Centre or one of our Dungeons worldwide. A creation and development of a completely new attraction/brand is possible as well. This is your chance to have influence on the growth of Merlin Entertainments. That might mean travelling to a particular attraction and liaising with contractors to ensure we have the right resources. Or it could mean identifying new ways to minimise risk. Whatever the situation, your experience and influence will ensure every project runs like clockwork.

About you
With solid experience in a similar Project Management role, it is desirable if you have a degree (or equivalent) in an area such as civil engineering, construction or architecture, alongside experience of delivering large retail, leisure or themed attraction projects. You’ll also have an ability to work under pressure, deliver on budget and on time and you’ll certainly be flexible enough to travel to our various European attractions. But what matters just as much is your infectious enthusiasm, your powers of persuasion at all levels and the fact that the memorable customer experience is at the heart of everything you do.
