The Candidate are working in partnership with a Retail E-commerce Software scale-up that are looking to add a Programme Manager with excellent understanding of Agile principles as well as a passion for digital software and collaboration to their growing delivery department to help build and develop 1/3 of their overarching programme strategy and by creating a recruitment and programme roadmap to delivery new features for the business while scaling. 

Joining with no direct reports you will utilise resource from the wider business as you plan to grow your own programme with at least 6 months before line management duties. Reporting to a Head of Delivery, as the Programme Manager you will lead the delivery of the new retail platform where the environment is fast paced and working to agile principles but still has regulatory deadlines. Strong on internal development and collaboration across the teams, this is an opportunity for someone to shape the organisation and encompass everything that comes below them.

As the Programme Manager you will:

  • Provide overall leadership for the delivery for your programme of work while sticking to industry regulations.
  • Creation of a programme strategy as well as a recruitment plan.
  • Have full accountability for your programme across, cost, time, performance, delivery, risk, resource, maximising ROI, programme’s people & vendors.
  • Co-ordinate cross-project activities and dependencies within the programme
  • Apply change, risk, and resource management.
  • Report the programme status to both internal and external stakeholders.
  • Maintenance of the programme roadmap and schedule.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone that loves a challenge and wants to work in a fast-paced environment while reporting into a Head of Delivery that is big on internal development and describes themselves as transparent, trustworthy, and collaborative.

Does the below sound like you?

  • Proven experience as a Programme Manager delivering multiple workstreams simultaneously.
  • Exposure to working in a regulated industry, big on compliance and ideally fast paced.
  • Do you consider yourself a Programme manager that likes to help & guide rather than dictate? (Driving collaboration)
  • Excellent knowledge of performance evaluation.
  • Successful experience managing multi-discipline teams to deliver new features for the business.
  • Wants accountability for the delivery of their programme with trust and autonomy from line management.

If you’re looking for the opportunity to own your programme and build a division from your own recruitment plans while having the accountability to measure the performance of your workstream against the wider business roadmap, while working alongside some of most talented tech professionals in the North West then contact me via email
