Full Time

As a supplier of compliance management solutions with over 3000 customers using our products, it would be easy to label Ideagen Plc as a software company, but with offices across the UK, USA, Bulgaria, Malaysia and Dubai we are so much more than that. We are a company that continually works with its customers to maximise what can be achieved with effective management of their compliance system - a remit much wider than a set of products.

We are expanding our existing project services team, and in this role as Senior Project Manager, you will be expected to work seamlessly with both the customer and senior management teams to lead them through the whole project lifecycle - initiation, design, implementation, project closure and customer success, starting with specifically leading the definition of a Project scope and delivery plan. With offices spread across the UK, Europe, USA and South East Asia, there will be some travel involved with this role to support our Service Delivery Consultants and the Ideagen Group as a whole.

This truly is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Project Manager, looking to take the next step in their career with an ever growing and dynamic organisation. Our people are at the heart of what we do, so if you’re customer focused, self-driven and have a natural passion and enthusiasm for software solutions, then we want to hear from you!
