  • Effectively manage stakeholders (both internal and external) and teams across the programme
  • Accountability for making change happen through your own delivery and the delivery of others
  • Analysis of project tracking data to produce management information / KPIs to bring insights that support optimisation or de-risking of the project delivery
  • Develop materials to support visibility of the project to the Executive, Board and other stakeholders

  • Knowledge of development life cycles, design, configuration, testing and deployment of new technologies
  • Project management and PMO methodologies including Agile
