I am working with a global market-leading legal and trade document automation platform provider for structured products and OTC derivatives.

Due to exponential growth they are looking to hire a senior project manager with experience delivering SaaS software projects into the UK financial industry. Ideally you will know about the technology to be able to describe a Microservice architecture. The candidate should also have experience of structured products, PRIIP and MiFID II regulations.

As the project manager you will be expected to work closely with senior management and others to facilitate effective and efficient delivery of any project backlog.

I am looking for a permanent candidate to work on-site in Canary Wharf with some remote working options.

Senior Project Manager Specification:

  • Work with external and internal stakeholders to understand their requirements and priorities to ensure timely and efficient implementation.
  • Communicate these requirements and priorities to internal senior management clearly and work alongside senior management to merge individual client requirements into cross-client prioritization and delivery plan.
  • Clearly communicate timelines and ETA's with clients and keep them regularly updated on progress
  • Ensure that deadlines are adhered to and manage client expectations in the event that this is not possible.
  • Investigate client feedback into the service/function/product provided.
  • Gain agreement, from senior management, of the best method of introducing your recommendations to the business.
  • Produce written documentation to support your work, report on your findings and to present to stakeholders when necessary.
  • Support the staff and teams in making the recommended changes, including helping to resolve any issues.
  • Ability to understand the derivatives market and communicate clearly with clients on complex issues.
  • Good understanding of how structured products are financially constructed.
  • Very good analytical and organizational skills.
  • The ability to work under pressure on multiple projects within different project timeframes.
  • Flexible and ability to adapt to change priorities and/or requirements.
  • A good understanding of information technology and preferably experience of systems that use XML, JSON and REST APIs.
  • Detail oriented and accurate.
  • Self-motivated and pro-active attitude.
  • Proficiency in Microsoft word, excel, power point, internet and email with excellent typing skills.
  • Ability to work in a team and motivate others.
  • Willingness to learn new things with an enthusiastic attitude.

If you have the desired skills and experience and would like to learn more about this opportunity then please send me your CV and I will call you to discuss this in the strictest confidence.
