We have an exciting opportunity now available with one of our sector-leading professional services clients! They are currently looking for a skilled Project Manager to join their team for a six-month contract.


Job Responsibilities/Objectives
As a Project Manager you will plan, execute and monitor your projects, where you will build strong relationships with your business stakeholders, understanding their strategic direction, processes and requirements to become their trusted advisor on all elements of the project delivery. You will have both experience working in an agile environment with multiple stakeholders at varying levels of seniority and equally be able to adapt to traditional project management approaches as required, to support the business' objectives. You will be accountable for delivering your projects in full and their alignment with the agreed benefits through a value driven approach.

  2. Identify project risks and issues, escalating where appropriate, in a timely manner
  3. Manage the expectations and satisfaction of the stakeholders
  4. Implement effective change control by ensuring project change impacts are assessed and communicated so all parties are aligned
  5. Implement an effective project business change approach to ensure business adoption is successful and the ROI can be realised
  6. Ensure project resources and budgets are tracked and kept up to date
  7. Develop and distribute timely status reporting with key metrics to appropriate stakeholders
  8. Follow and align with the organisation's processes, governance framework and best practice
  9. Own and engage in all stages of the agile development process - planning, stand-up, show-and-tell and retrospective ceremonies
  10. Work closely with the product owners to ensure the backlog is sufficiently prioritised for the next iteration
  11. Manage, coach and motivate the project team
  12. Communicate with openness, honesty and respect in all situations and be adept at conflict resolution and direction setting


Required Skills/Experience
The ideal candidate will have the following:

  1. Excellent communication skills, both verbally and written that inspire confidence in business stakeholders and the team
  2. Good commercial awareness and experience of managing budgets and resource utilisation
  3. Very well organised and able to respond to changing priorities
  4. Analytical and flexible with the ability to rapidly understand ambiguous and complex concepts
  5. Ability to take and understand the commitment to deliver the project on time through the use of Agile tools (where appropriate), the value of metrics and incremental delivery
  6. Will have worked extensively with geographically distributed teams on and off shore



Desirable Skills/Experience
Although not essential, the following skills are desired by the client:

  1. Scrum Master certified
