I am an experienced project manager, having successfully overseen projects with clients including the Greater London Authority, Richmond Arts Service and Museum Development North West.
These have included working with multiple partners, volunteers and stakeholders, so excellent communication and organisational skills have been essential. I am also experienced in budget management and creating reports for funders, including the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Project partners have provided positive feedback on my approach, including:
"We recruited an amazing Project Manager who steered the project through the myriad of issues that arose over the 18 months. Jen has really been the glue that has made this all happen and on a very tight budget. We couldn’t have wished for a better Project Manager – ‘gold dust’!"
"Jen did a brilliant job of organising, and a brilliant job of managing it, and a brilliant job of getting us all together doing the things that were going to make it a good project."
"I think the employment of Jen Kavanagh was pretty miraculous. You need somebody who has not only the ability to curate and see what curation might mean, but also to not micromanage. She has a way of connecting with people and allowing people to work together, which is great."
