Project Manager

devon Contract / 12 Months £0.00 - £465.00 per annum

Project Manager | £465/Day | 12 Months | Inside IR35 | Defence Sector | Onsite 2 Days in Exeter

One of my key Public Sector clients is currently looking to hire a Project Manager on a contract basis. Experience working in the Defence sector in a Cloud based environment is highly desirable.

The programme manages the evolution and lifecycle of a range of products and services that support Defence users, both in the UK and Internationally. Delivery requires a varied programme of Science & Technology projects and activities. The role will work alongside a team of experienced project and delivery managers as well of a broad range of other specialists (e.g. Product Managers, Architects, Analysts, etc.) as part of a large multi-disciplined team. Delivery is predominately agile (Scrum or Kanban), but with some aspects of classic waterfall (tailored PRINCE2), as necessary within a Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) framework

The programme is currently delivered through three overarching tranches of work: Applications, Visualisation, and Data delivery. It is likely that this role will manage delivery of projects of varying complexities within the Data tranche using, where a key driver for the programme is to mange the move to Cloud technologies for delivery of data to Defence end users.

We’re looking for people with the experience to deliver projects on time and on budget without compromising on quality. Excellent communication and leadership skills are a must, along with practical knowledge of agile ‘at scale’. Qualifications in agile and an understanding of working in a large-scale programme environment would be advantageous, as would any previous experience of working in the Defence Sector.
