We have a new role for an ERP Project Manager with consulting and client facing experience, to join a global ERP company, with a UK division of around 25 people. They have just won a large deal and need additional PM resource. This is a permanent position, either home based (anywhere from Yorkshire to the West Country to the South or East Coast, with a one day visit per month to their southern office, or you can be full time /flexible office based if you prefer (Berkshire / London / Surrey / Hampshire area). Egham is just a marker point for the location.
They are looking for someone who is well organised, personable, and action-focused with the ability to meet deadlines & budgets, multi-task and survive under pressure. To £45k plus benefits.
This is to project manage ERP software projects of 20 days to 100 days. You will work with a team of ERP Implementation Consultants who do the delivery, as well as working with the clients and the Senior PM. You would probably start on some smaller projects and as you get to know the software and the company, you will pick up bigger and bigger projects. The largest ones are 300 or 400 days, so there is plenty of scope to develop your career.
They are looking for an experienced (2 years+) Project Manager who has managed projects for a software company / software vendor / reseller delivering application software, either ERP or similar to ERP. So this could be Construction software, Property Management software, Business Intelligence, Field Service Management, ERP, MRP, CRM, Legal software, Payroll & HR software, Document Management solutions, Insurance or Credit software or anything similar.
Whatever the software solution, you need to understand the process of the implementation life cycle: design it, build it, test it, and install it. And you understand the issues with getting the right Implementation Consultant to the client - on the right day - to do the task.
You will be responsible for coordinating the ERP Consultants & internal resources to ensure that projects are implemented within scope and on time and to budget. You will liaise with & report weekly to your clients on timescales & costs, develop project plans to track progress, manage project scope, creep and schedules, manage the stakeholders, measure project performance, and manage risk on a regular basis.
Their current team is made up of 8 ERP Implementation Consultants and two Project Managers. The Senior PM is being promoted to Operations Manager (will still be there for advice though, and will still get involved in running major projects) and the other PM is a junior level graduate, working on the smaller projects and gaining experience and progressing rapidly. So this is a mid-level PM role, with plenty of scope for advancement.
Travel to client sites will be required, to do kick off meetings so you should expect 3-7 days travelling each month and the occasional overnight stay.
You will be someone who enjoys interacting with SME clients and helping them to understand and overcome challenges by implementing world-class software. You believe that careful project planning and good system preparation, prior to go live, makes all the difference.
