This is the first step of an exciting journey for both of us.

Who are we? a rapidly expanding global technology solutions company with a best-in-class product suite and service offering.

You? a highly-adaptable, seasoned strategic project manager with an affinity for shaping and delivering corporate initiatives that will support our continued growth and ambitious expansion plans. Let’s talk.

You’ll wear multiple hats in this role :-

The technologist in you will quickly develop a deep understanding of our product suite. This is critical as you’ll be talking to our key customers and partners, often at a technical level, about how best to leverage its capabilities.

The architect in you will design and build robust processes and platforms to fuel growth and enable frictionless distribution models.

The visionary in you will develop new and innovative service propositions, consolidate our market share and extol our key product differentiators.

The consultant in you will become a brand ambassador, interacting with our customers to elicit feedback for incorporation into our product ecosystem.

The strategist in you will help increase operational effectiveness and align processes to our global expansion strategy.

Most significantly of all, the project manager in you will take end-to-end ownership of key strategic initiatives and ensure rigorous discipline and governance across multiple schedules, budgets and workflows.

We are at a pivotal point in our evolution. We’ve done well, very well in fact, but we can do better. If we’re honest we have some growing pains so the immediate goal is to put the operational structure in place that will support our future ambitions. We’d like you to help us.

Emotional intelligence is critical, not only knowing the what and the how, but also having sufficient gravitas and credibility to bring people along for the journey.

You’ll work with multiple senior stakeholders across a variety of business lines. You will channel ideas back and forth, review, evaluate and prioritise.

You’ll manage the testing and piloting of new concepts and service offerings with internal teams and selected external partners and customers. Yes, we’ve worked hard to build these trusted relationships.

Continually researching and evaluating industry best practice, competitor offerings and market trends, you will become the authority in how to stay ahead of the pack.

This is a critical role for us. We have to get it right. Are you right for us?
You could be if you have :-

Significant senior project management experience in a large corporate, software or consulting firm, ideally PRINCE2, PMP or APM certified.

Experience of running complex system and data integration projects in fast-paced environments. Solid exposure to a CRM solution is highly desirable.

First-class organisational and structured thinking ability, able to work consultatively to identify solutions and resolve conflict effectively.

Agile, dynamic, flexible, adaptable, able to respond to ever-changing demands in a fast-paced environment where the only certainty is constant change.

Ability to navigate a complex stakeholder landscape, building rapport, trust and credibility. Persuasive influencing skills. Affinity for eliciting buy-in at all levels.

Affinity for seeing the structure in the unstructured, making sense of a vast treasure trove of data for marketing and business development purposes.

Comfortable with a degree of travel, both across the UK and internationally.

Is your interest piqued? Get in touch. We have a very direct, open and transparent way of doing things. It can feel like a startup at times such is the pace of growth and disruption, but rest assured we are fortunate enough to have a number of shrewd business minds who have been around the block to keep us on the right path.

We prefer to talk in terms of opportunity and growth potential, and it is significant, but just in case you were wondering… GBP 70,000 + bonus + share options + full benefits package.

We look forward to hearing from you. We'll let you decide how best to make this initial approach but remember we're old school in that we appreciate cover letters... hint hint
