  • Present regular updates to key stakeholders inside and outside of the IT team in a formal and regular manner.

Your Profile

You will be a highly impressive IT Project Manager with a background of managing software and infrastructure projects and experience in managing projects from inception to completion, particularly those involving stakeholders inside and outside of technology. Your skillset will also include:

  • Comprehensive, formal project methodology knowledge
  • Strong technical proficiency in all areas of IT infrastructure, including networking, telephony and desktop upgrades
  • Experience working within a diverse environment
  • Experience within a numerous desktop environment and a comfort across several technologies
  • A hands-on, 'can-do' attitude and a background of delivering results in pressurised situations.
  • A willingness to go the extra mile to get the job done in challenging circumstances and an ability to keep a cool head.
  • High degree of vendor management experience and the ability to evidence cost savings and efficiency improvements
  • Some experience in the medical or scientific sector would be greatly beneficial.

You will also be a highly presentable individual with strong written and verbal communication skills. Our ideal candidate will be a Project Manager who has managed large scale projects in a similarly sized environment
