Would you describe yourself as a pro-active, seasoned, tactical, and pragmatic Project Manager who thrives on driving projects to completion?
If your answer is yes, you’re going to fit right in with our team. We’re looking for a delivery manager to support our Infrastructure team with day-
to-day oversight of our programmes and projects. We are a group of creative and ambitious individuals whose bread and butter is delivering great products, solving business problems, learning new technologies and fostering a collaborative and inclusive environment -
we’re looking for partners in crime who feel the same.
Bird’s eye view of the role :
As a TPM, you will use agile and traditional project management techniques to scope, plan, budget, and resource projects for the global teams running internal IT infrastructure and Information Security at FC.
Be a project wrangler : you will be jointly responsible for planning programmes and projects, setting delivery expectations, and resetting them where necessary.
You will remove blockers and encourage sensible prioritisation of tasks and goals within the teams, and ensure projects are run efficiently and on time.
You will be a point of contact for others outside of the technology team and be able to triage at the drop of a hat.
Be a team builder : you will work to foster solid agile practices and processes by working with the engineering team; identifying and implementing initiatives that are aimed at further developing team practices.
Be a collaborator : you will work with all stakeholders to help prioritise, estimate, identify and manage risks and dependencies of the project, as well as provide ongoing status updates, through accurate reporting and verbal / written communication.
Your understanding of the domain and current issues will be essential in determining longer term prioritisation. You should have a well-
honed ability to communicate technical issues to someone non-technical.
