Our client, a dynamic, fast-growing and exciting software company specialises in developing administration systems for the pensions and benefits industry. As part of their continuing growth they are looking to recruit a Project Manager to work in the Client Services team.

As Project Manager you will be primarily responsible for the implementation of their bespoke system for new clients. Typically this takes between 6 to 18 months to complete therefore as Project Manager you will be expected to remain on the project from initiation to system "go live".During the project, the Project Manager will be responsible for:

•Managing a small team (usually around 6 to 8 people) of software implementers and developers

•Developing a project plan in Microsoft Project and maintaining it throughout the lifetime of the project;

•Attending regular face-face project steering meetings

•Maintaining a Project Risks / Project issues log

•Ensuring the work carried out by the project team is completed on schedule, within budget and to a high standard

This rewarding, varied role would be suited to an organised Project Manager that enjoys a "hands on" position more than a purely project management role. As a self motivated individual you will be capable of motivating project team members.At least some pensions, payroll or other financial services knowledge is essential.The ability to communicate with both internal and external clients both verbally and in writing

Experience in the following areas would be beneficial:

•Agile Scrum

•PRINCE2

•Microsoft SQL Server

•Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)
