My client, a global brand in their sector, is adding to their Project Management capability in their IT function as they have a healthy pipeline of projects planned throughout 2018, all signed-off and funded.
The IT function is around 30 strong and they utilise a number of off the shelf business applications both internally, and deployed to their clients' sites, supporting over 4000 of their staff UK-wide.
This PM role will report to the Head of PMO, working alongside an existing Project Manager and the three IT Departmental Heads (Service Delivery & Applications, Infrastructure, and Service & Support).
The projects planned for 2018/19 are predominantly data/software related, and will involve approximately 3-5 IT resources and 2-4 stakeholders per project. Budgets are already agreed, and most costs are internal, however reporting on project financials may be required on some projects, especially where external specialist resources are used.
You may be an experienced Project PMO resource looking to make that first step into a PM role, or a Junior PM looking for that next step up. Either way, in addition to project experience, progress down the certification route is a must have. As an absolute minimum Foundation level, but Practitioner would be preferred.
Also, you will have clear and demonstrable experience of Risk Log Management (RAID). This is a core requirement of the role.
Personal qualities required are excellent written & spoken English communications skills, team-player, knowledge-sharer with professional personal presentation. A strong customer-service and delivery focused attitude is pre-requisite.
The work environment is outstanding. Fantastic, modern, airy offices in the centre of Surbiton and in the heart of all local shops & amenities. Smart, professional HQ work environment.
Very close to Surbiton Mainline station (Oyster Zone 6) which is a 16 minute train ride out of Waterloo, against the commuter grain, each way. So, this role could also suit South-West London-based candidates that want to get away from the daily grind.
An multiple-choice, online, technical assessment around Project Management principles forms part of the application process, followed by a single face to face interview. Interviews are scheduled to take place week commencing 13th August 2018.
