Essential Criteria:

  • We’re looking for people with the experience to deliver projects on time and on budget without compromising on quality.

The role will work alongside a team of experienced project and delivery managers as well of a broad range of other specialists (e.g. Product Managers, Architects, Analysts, etc.) as part of a large multi-disciplined team. Delivery is predominately agile (Scrum or Kanban), but with some aspects of classic waterfall (tailored PRINCE2), as necessary within a Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) framework
