Project Manager

Your new company

An organisation which is a leading provider of individual Wealth management, Asset management and other services to a variety of clients - private clients, charities and professional partners. They are currently growing rapidly and are undertaking large-scale technology and business transformation to improve their services utilising new systems and processes.

Your new role

The Product Owner/ Project Manager will join a small team of Product Owners (currently 4 others in the team) geographically dispersed across multiple locations. You will be working on a significant digital transformation programme - creating an entire back-office for Investment managers/ financial planners. Currently, there are many manual processes, so the aim of the project is to implement a new 3rd party Digital vendor solution which is currently due to go live around June/ July this year.

The Product Owner/ Project Manager will be required to own the delivery of the Product to the business, working closely with the vendor to ensure successful delivery of the solution. They will also be required to work with the business to ensure the successful roll-out of the solution.

Initially, the role will involve a lot of Project Management, with around 20% of the role being Product Ownership in the early stages however this is likely to change when it comes to implementation and enhancement stages. This is a highly complex project and will require both Project Management and Product ownership skills with the ability to adapt to a highly changing environment.

What you'll need to succeed

  • Experience in both a Product Owner and Project Management capacity
  • Strong knowledge of Agile - Agile certification would be preferable
  • Experience of working on digital technology transformation programmes
  • Strong stakeholder engagement skills - up to C-levels
  • FS knowledge - ideally Wealth management is preferable

What you'll get in return

Competitive Salary

Benefits package includes:
9 % pension
Life cover- 10X salary
75% salary income protection
Discretionary bonus

Initially a 12-month FTC but there is a very high likelihood the role will be extended or even made permanent.
