  • Set the pace of the project activities and actively drive them through to completion, create solutions to problems as required to allow delivery to progress
  • Actively manage the project to ensure it is delivered in a timely manner, with visible timelines and costs
  • Provide weekly report updates on the project, highlighting any risks, issues or decisions for escalation
  • Direct and support the work of business analysts to ensure project priorities and deadlines are met
  • Mentor and support the project managers
  • Work with technical colleagues from IT, Development and ISR to ensure the project plan contains an adequate level of detail and that key technical activities are identified and planned for at the earliest opportunity
  • Coordinate the project activities of external suppliers and ensure they adhere to the agreed project timescales and quality
  • Own the closure of the project, including identifying and sharing lessons learned and ensuring mechanisms are in place to track and monitor business benefit realisation

  • Project management and solution delivery experience within a bespoke software delivery environment, recognised project management methodology qualification such as Prince 2 Practitioner or Agile PM Practitioner
  • Experience of successfully delivering complex software delivery and integration projects using waterfall and agile project management methodologies, with the ability to tailor and blend the approaches as appropriate
  • Strong leadership skills with experience of delivering projects in a complex environment with multiple stakeholders
  • Varied sector background such as financial services, retail and communications
