An exciting, new opportunity has developed to join one of our high profile clients based in Salford as a Technical Project Manager, to both lead and assist with the delivery of a wide range of technical projects.

Our client has a significant programme of work, and the successful candidate can expect significant responsibility for the delivery of a wide range of interesting and complex projects. The role presents the right individual with the opportunity to work closely with an interesting and varied set of partners and decision-makers, to take ownership and lead a wide range of projects; and to provide support and oversee delivery of other projects delivered by other project managers within the team.

You will be joining a dynamic and friendly team, with the opportunity to work on a range of stimulating and engaging projects, and the necessary support to develop you professionally.

  • Sound understanding of a range of structured programme and project management methodologies, including Waterfall and Agile.
