Please note this will be focussing on many purely business impact projects & occasional technical projects and thus you must have the wider scope experience of working on large non-technical projects and be able to take full sole responsibility for design strategy/concept & full project plan from initial basic brief as well as Project Management & Specific delivery of very high-level strategic projects.

As the role will involve some direct communication with global delivery teams, there may be the necessity to occasionally attend overseas events and the need to liaise with colleagues in other countries out of hours & thus a degree of flexibility will be required. - although the flexible approach to work scheme provides a great opportunity to adapt to personal home commitments as well as working from home on average of one day a week.

Responsibilities will include:- extensive engagement with users & stakeholders (especially at board level) for business needs; building & presenting business cases; managing the project delivery- embedding activity in the business and realising the business benefits; co-ordinating and allocating resources; building strategic knowledge base of stakeholder culture/business needs/drivers; manage internal & external stakeholder/client interaction/expectations for successful project delivery; oversee project budgets & documentation and matrix manage project teams.
