You will work with clients to Project Manage the delivery and implementation of their software using a mixed methodology that includes elements of Waterfall and Prince 2 but increasingly Agile depending upon the client requirements. You are likely to be Prince 2 or PMI certified and have applied a structured project management methodology on the real-world software projects so understand the pit-falls and need to minimise risks and put milestones in place. You will interface with the Software Development team to matrix manage resource for the customisation and delivery of their software and interface with key stakeholders of a technical and non-technical nature for the customer.

To be considered your CV will demonstrate your experience as a Software Project Manager, this role is not for a generalist who would consider themselves non-technical.

You will be expected to visit client sites roughly 1-2 days a week (and generally in the London area) depending on the stage of the project but much of the work will be done remotely through Skype and phone calls so you will not constantly out on the road.
