Job Description

Senior Project/Programme Manager - Financial Services/Banking - Northampton


We have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Senior Project Manager/Programme Manager to work with our financial services client in Northampton.


You will be responsible for the implementation and delivery of new systems and processes into the business. Your work-stream forms an integral part of the overall transformation programme so you must have a strong knowledge of financial services/banking, excellent project/programme management skills and an ability to deliver large scale programmes and business transformation to tight and immovable time-frames - the first phase is due towards the end of 2017.  You will not directly manage resources so will have to plan, request and utilise resources as necessary within the programme.


This is a challenging programme of work and you will be one of several Senior Project/Programme Managers implementing the solution into your specific area.


To be successful in this role you need to have proven large scale end-to-end delivery and implementation experience, a strong character, the ability to manage resources from different areas not directly under your management, excellent stakeholder management and influencing skills (up to board level) and a good understanding of technology projects, programmes and work-streams. The role requires someone with experience of delivering demanding and highly pressured work programmes to senior stakeholders. If you have experience of turning round delayed programmes and can remain calm and find solutions to problems where others can't then this could be the perfect role for you.


6 months initial contract and good daily rates available.
