The Role:

The Company:

They are a well-known eCommerce and retail specialist with many many years’ experience in the industry. They have their own eCommerce websites and host and develop a number of eCommerce websites for another group of companies. They also do the backend software for both sides including stock control systems, order management systems etc. The business is going through a really exciting change period, it will see their focus change slightly and will see them bring several new websites to the market as well as the opening of further retail outlets across Europe.

This is where you come in:

We need someone who can run projects simultaneously. The main project to focus on from now until the end of summer will be the complete build of a brand new eCommerce website. They have partnered up with a 3rd party agency who are going to be doing the design and build of this however you’ll be working really closely with them and representing the company to ensure the 3rd party delivers a website which looks like and does exactly what was asked for. It’s at the initial stages so you’ll take full control of this whilst potentially looking after a few much smaller projects at the same time.

What you’ll be doing:

Pulling together project plans, detailing timescales and key deliverables

Managing simultaneous projects from end to end

Briefing stakeholders on progress and status of project as well as working with them to ascertain business goals

Constantly evaluating risk, whether that be compliance, financial or resource focused

Working closely with the 3rd party and web team to pull together technical roadmaps

Documenting work and tracking objectives

Budget management

Must have experience:


Prince2 and/or Waterfall

Have managed multiple projects

Have project managed the build of websites – ideally eCommerce or retail websites, or high volume or high transaction websites

End to end, full project lifecycle experience

Stakeholder management

You’ll need to be able to hit the ground running in this role, any experience within retail or eCommerce is highly desired but overall we really want to speak to project managers who have delivered new website builds.

It’s a great company to work for and you’ll be heading up this area so it really is a key role for the business. There are flexible working options as well as a benefits package including a pension and employee discount schemes!
