Full Time
Global Data analytics firm/ software house are looking for a hands on Project Manager who can lead the customer-facing projects for some of the biggest high-street retailers. This company are world leaders within Data Analytics products within the retail space, having recently acquired over 75% of the market share of the industry they work in, and have built 2 ground-breaking platforms.

As such, many of their clients require bespoke customisation of their platforms; therefore we are looking for a Project Manager who wants to take more responsibility around the Project Management function of the company. Currently, there is no standard process for determining project status, researching issues and escalations, or even resource, mainly because each project is run by individual Implementation Team Leads. You will set up a reporting process and be the single point of contact for the Delivery Team whilst keeping the stakeholders, internal or external, up to date on progress and any potential blockers or issues.

You will be working alongside our Technical Implementation team, so although you won't be required to have any in-depth technical knowledge you will need to be able to communicate with technical and non-technical stakeholders alike. You will be the single point of contact for both our clients and our Delivery Manager.

Some of our clients use traditional Waterfall project methodologies, others are more Agile in their approach - you will adapt accordingly to make sure that everyone works together to deliver the project on time and on budget. Our projects vary massively in terms of scope and budget, so ideally we are looking for someone with experience managing multiple small to medium sized projects with a PLC of 1-6 months.

This opportunity will suit a Project Manager who is keen to build up their skillset whilst building up relationships with clients and gathering requirements. You will be getting involved throughout all aspects of the development process, driving projects forward, developing the innovative products through to implementation. This is a great opportunity for you to own a Project Management function and help shape and mature our project processes.

You will be joining a company that are true leaders in their field as well as being one of the best companies to work with in London, with a very social team, who provide great training and development. APPLY NOW through this ad for your application to be considered.
