Are you a Programme Manager or Senior Project Manager frustrated with the bureaucracy and box-ticking that your day seems to be filled with? Do you want to step into a brand new role which has been created to manage a portfolio of diverse software projects and programmes of work? Your aim in this role is to ensure a truly fast-growth company - whose products and global customers are increasing at an exponential rate - are delivering the right software projects, as well as delivering them in the right way. You'll be working across a large department made up of a number of Software Development teams. On the subject of Software Development it's important to note that you'll have progressed your career from Programmer (even if it was a few years ago!) into Project / Programme Management. The PMs you'll be managing will be getting stuck in at a technical level with Developers working with the full Microsoft stack to deliver enterprise-scale web applications and systems. Whilst your role is to have a much higher-level view of projects and programmes you need a technical programming background to fully understand the breadth of what you're delivering, and to have that level of gravitas with the Devs. It's not a large corporate firm where teams are siloed and don't need to know what's happening elsewhere - it's a complex enterprise-scale environment which needs Managers engrossed in the technical detail when needs be. You'll be the kind of Programme / Project Manager who calls a spade a spade - you'll be pragmatic in your approach, unphased by changing requirements and will have shown resilience to challenges (and have the battle scars to prove it). You'll benefit from an expanding group of Senior Project Manager staff to learn and bounce ideas off in this role, though at this level you'll be the one looked to for guidance and mentoring. I must stress we're not looking for a 'Head of' or a Programme Manager who has been highly strategic and away from the detail of software development projects - you must be still enthused by the technology. We can offer to c£80k dependent on experience with bonus and car. If you feel up for the challenge of a demanding role in an informal working culture please get in touch at Neilesh(dot)Sood(at)Modis(dot)co(dot)uk or ************ This post is based in North Staffordshire so commutable within 45 minutes from the likes of Crewe, Stoke, Northwich, Knutsford, Warrington, Macclesfield, Derby, Burton, Cannock and Telford.
