Project Manager

Location: Newcastle


Job ID: 165697

We are currently seeking an experienced IT Infrastructure Project Manager with exposure on a 6 month contract.

You will be responsible for all aspects of the project management lifecycle, working closely with the IT Technical team based in Newcastle upon Tyne. The role may require some occasional travel to our London City office. You will work on a variety of technical related projects covering aspects such as environments configuration and management, systems replacement and new implementations.

You will be required to work within the boundaries of the Group Project Management Framework and have a formal project management qualification such as PRINCE2, APMP etc. with a minimum of 5 years practitioner experience. An awareness of Agile as well as waterfall methodologies would be advantageous. Experience of working in a regulated environment such as financial services would be an advantage, but not essential.

Problem solving and prioritisation skills will be essential along with the ability to manage senior stakeholders. Clear, confident communication, experience of working with and controlling third parties along with cost management and reporting are also priorities.

This is a period of significant change for the organisation as it seeks to upgrade and streamline its systems and processes. There is an opportunity for the contract to be significantly extended to support a major system implementation currently planned for the second half of 2018 and running in to 2019.
