IT and technology
This is an organization with a great reputation for excellence and innovation. A complex business with a large and diverse client base, the company is constantly looking at how it can improve its own performance and enhance the range and quality of services it offers.
From top to bottom the company fully recognizes the vital role technology will continue to play in maximizing its potential. With a continuous pipeline of ambitious technology projects and with the business investing heavily in its future across the board, there will be some great opportunities moving forward.
Reporting to the Head of Digital Transformation you will be a highly valued and critical member of the projects team. This is a project management role delivering a breadth of technology solutions, predominantly focused on driving a digital transformation which will substantially rework how the business delivers its services.
First and foremost the role requires excellent soft skills. The position demands the ability to 'push back' and challenge stakeholders whilst maintain good will and a positive attitude to what is a large transformation program. The business is comprised of different groups who are all striving for the same outcome, but often with different ideas on how to get there, a key part of this position is to influence senior leaders to ensure the best and most consistent results for the business itself.
In addition to this, you are delivering multiple software platforms, and helping to deliver online portals to clients - so there will be some technical challenges in the role, as well as the business/people side of project management. There are a number of tier 1 'off the shelf' software suites being implemented, and there is both vendor and in-house development and configuration being applied to these technologies.
The software build and project management components are employing Agile methodology. The business delivered an Agile transformation project a few years ago, and whilst sometimes projects are managed using more of a blended framework the business does strive to work in the fastest and most efficient way possible at all times.
Your personality type, attitude, drivers, and skill set are all of a high importance. Finding the correct cultural fit is paramount here. An individual who understands people and how to get the best out of them. Someone with enthusiasm, patience, and drive.
A lot of your success will depend on your soft-skills. Working on application/software focused projects is a plus, experience in both a large and a small-medium enterprise environment is preferable, and experience in an outcome focused business.
Your experience and skills should include most, if not all:
- Successful project delivery utilizing a range of frameworks and methodologies.
- The running of workshops and engagement of diverse groups of people.
- Delivering software focused projects/programs of work.
- An adaptive and innovative approach to rapidly changing needs and circumstances.
You must also have or be:
- A passion and desire towards achieving absolute excellence.
- Driven to inspire, empower and lead at all levels.
