Who you'll be working for
At Stoneseed we provide innovative Project and Programme services to a multitude of clientele nationwide, with projects covering a range of industries and technologies. Our success has been built around our innovative Project Management as a Service (PMaaS) model. We are not industry specific, nor aligned to any particular technology or vendors - this role is never the same and therefore, what we offer is variance to our Project Managers, in a client facing scenario.
The best way to describe us, we believe, is as a close but growing family. We are not a big corporate company where you can sometimes feel like just a number. We recognise that behind our award-winning service is a great team, and our employees feeling valued is something our Directors feel passionate about. Feeling like part of a team can sometimes be a challenge when you are placed onto client sites, but we truly work hard to combat this. Each year there is a company day out to bring everyone together, not to mention team events, a Christmas party, and various other gifts and rewards throughout the year.
We look to bring on board independent Project Managers that can deliver projects client side. Typically, our Project Managers have one to three projects for one or two clients. We do not believe true project management is coordinating 20 or 30 projects from behind a desk.

- All aspects of Project Management; accountability for programme and project delivery
- Definition, scoping and planning of multi-disciplinary programmes and projects
- Project planning; producing the project plan and ensuring all resources are identified

- Benefits tracking to ensure the benefits are realised and the project is successful
- Change management through-out the project lifecycle for all changes related to cost, quality and time
- Financial management, of all related project expenditure, hardware, software, capital and opex
- Quality management, ensuring the project deliverables are of a high quality
- Risk management; through risk identification, risk analysis and planning to mitigate the risks
