They say that the average job seeker spends approximately 60 seconds skimming through a job ad (especially when said content is digested via mobile), before deciding whether to apply or ignore. So with that in mind, I wanted to craft something nice and short but hopefully interesting enough for you to want to take further.
Here we go...
I have partnered up with a leading Digital Transformation Consultancy in Leeds City Centre who are looking to add to their existing delivery function by recruiting an experienced Agile Project Manager with a background delivering Agile software projects. The role is due to growth and an expanding project pipeline, with the long term focus being career progression and the opportunity to move into a Head of Delivery or Delivery Director role.
The core focus of the role will be to essentially initiate, plan, facilitate and motivate highperforming Agile project teams with the overriding goal being to deliver highquality and scalable solutions to their customers. You will work closely with these teams on a daily basis, with said teams consisting of Software Engineers, Web Developers, Mobile Developers and Business Analysts. You will act as a de facto Scrum Master on occasions and will be expected to engage with technical stakeholders on a daily basis.
In terms of what they expect from you, rather than copy and paste the JD, I have chosen to highlight the key requirements following discussions with their CTO:
Agile First and foremost, you must have proven experience leading Agile project teams and delivering Agile projects using methodologies including Scrum and Kanban. Previous experience as either a Product Owner or Scrum Master would be hugely beneficial.
Project Management You should be able to demonstrate excellent delivery experience and a background using methodologies such as Waterfall and/or PRINCE2 would be great. If you have any PM certifications (PMP, PRINCE2) then that would be an added bonus.
Stakeholder Management Moreover, due to the nature of this organisation (i.e. a Technical Consultancy), proven stakeholderfacing experience is therefore mandatory as you will be expected to deal with end customers on a daily basis. Strong communication skills is therefore a huge element of this role and something that must be present.
Technical Background Finally, whilst you wont be writing code or fixing servers, it is important that you have a technical background as you will be responsible for the delivery of E2E software projects (Web, Mobile). If you come from a Software Developer/Web Developer background then that is a big bonus.
In return, you will benefit from an organisation that actually values their employees and I can personally vouch for the fact that they have a great company culture. They offer flexible working hours and the opportunity to work from home, alongside a competitive benefits/bonus package.
