An IT Project Manager is required for an initial 6 month contract with a Global Fashion Retailer. There is a continuous programme of work to improve and sustain the major digital platform within the organisation. You will be responsible for a portfolio of activities that must be managed as well as reliance on limited resource pools which must be factored into the plans. You will be instrumental in building a sustainable pool of technical expertise and capability around the key technologies being used by the organisation in order to maintain their agile way of working, and to deliver quickly on new activity sets as they are identified and prioritised through their change board.

The ideal candidate will have extensive experience of working in project management within the retail sector,in a DevOps type environment and in addition to this, the ability to create the best application of this practice for the responsibilities outlined in a fast paced and challenging environment. Previous experience of working within an Agile environment is equally desirable, as well as exposure to working closely with senior leadership stakeholders, managing large budgets for projects involving consumer mobile apps, loyalty programmes and "click & collect". A proven track record of e-commerce experience is equally an advantage.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to work for a global retailer, managing budgets in excess of £1 million. With no shortage of activities and programmes to manage, the ideal candidate has the potential to be on a long term contract, as their role grows alongside their key accountabilities. This means that the ideal candidate could potentially maintain a long-term presence within the organisation, as well as continuous exposure to the latest technologies the organisation adopts.
