Working with clients across Europe, you will be responsible for leading projects to implement a specialised software platform. These projects usually involve working with significant amounts of financial data and liaising with finance professionals, so some experience in financial services or working with FinTech platforms would be advantageous. You must be comfortable working across multiple projects in a busy team, with a flexible mix of office-based and home-working arrangements.

In this role you will:
  • Work closely with the consulting team to deliver each project engagement from scoping through to solution design, testing, training, and implementation
  • Oversee a portfolio of client projects, acting as the central point of contact and advocate for project management best practice for the wider team
  • Deliver detailed project plans, with clear timelines, budgets and milestones
  • Manage resource requirements across the portfolio
  • Develop and maintain key project documents such as definition, scope, plans, budget, risks, and issue log
  • Work within recognised project management frameworks, including Prince 2 and Agile methodologies
  • Manage client relationships, interacting with stakeholders at all levels
  • Commit to regular professional development, continuing to build an in-depth understanding of the private equity and alternative investment industry.

The successful project manager will bring:
  • A proven track record of delivering complex projects to time and budget. You may have direct experience of private equity or come from a specialist finance/audit/accounting background, or have worked in a related field
  • Experience with a range of project management methodologies
  • Experience working in a software vendor environment would be highly desirable
  • A passion for continuous professional development, both for yourself and for others.
  • Experience in managing others is advantageous but not essential.

This client offers a competitive base salary and a comprehensive package including private health cover and contributory pension. Hybrid working is available.
