We're looking for a "hands-on" and highly experienced project manager with great experience who will be responsible for devising and implementing strategies for delighting customers.

You'll have entrepreneurial flair and ambition to grow the company with cutting-edge web solutions, and you'll be a confident decision-maker who can balance priorities (and balance workloads). You'll also have a technical project management background and the experience needed to personally lead on high-value and complex projects.

Skills and competenciesRequired
  • Significant experience owning multiple projects (typically 30-40 concurrent) of all sizes, including those involving API-driven integration;
  • Experience of managing, monitoring, and accounting for projects;
  • Proven track record of delivering measurable results on time and against agreed KPIs;
  • Strong track record and experience in people and project management;
  • Commercial awareness;
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills;
  • Ability to prioritise, delegate, and multi-task;
  • Excellent organisation and planning ability;
  • Experience in presenting to both internal and external clients and stakeholders;
  • Commitment to working and communicating proactively across all teams within the company;
  • Process- and deadline-driven, yet a great team player and manager.

  • A background in web technology;
  • Experience in customer support and customer excellence;

You'll own the delivery of all customer projects through Project Management Office, customer support, and customer training. You'll also be responsible for ensuring that customers maximise the benefits and value they receive from the broad range of products and services, ultimately leading to customer loyalty and longevity.

You will enjoy the cut-and-thrust of a role with huge variety on a day-to-day basis that combines an almost military level of organisation with the happy extroversion required to communicate with customers about their project progress on a regular basis.

Your focus will be on customer satisfaction, making sure that projects are delivered on time, on budget, and to specification-and making sure that the PMO is oriented toward achieving this at all times.
