Who You'll Be Working With
Contact: Daniel Whitmore
My client are a consultancy who solve problems with a wide range of tools including product and service design. They have some heavyweight clients, a brilliant team, and a highly flexible approach to work. They have an extremely flat structure and many members of the team work remotely (though there about 40 out of 100 employees who spend most of their time in the office). The projects are extremely diverse, as they have a "problem first" approach, preferring to get a deep understanding of the client requirement and problem before deciding which approach and solution will be best placed to solve it.
What You'll Be Doing
As a Digital Project Manager you'll primarily be a facilitator whose main responsibility is to be an unblocker. You'll have end to end control of what their delivery process looks like, and you'll be liaising with a range of stakeholders both internally and externally to get things done. In terms of actual deliverables, it'll be everything from multimillion enterprise software build and rollout, through to bespoke app design and other digital products. They are happy to change the systems and tools they use if you think there is a better way for them to work - they are always open to adapting and tweaking the way they work.
Who You'll Be
You will have a great understanding of experience and product design, have a strong end to end skillset not just in project management but in process management, the ability to push back when needed with clients, and an approach which could be described more as facilitation and coaching then simply booking people onto projects. A growth mindset, flexible approach and a general willingness to muck in are also essential.
The usual character traits also apply - we want somebody who is positive, energetic and curious, with a can-do attitude and a knack for organisation.
