Sale, Greater Manchester | £40,000 - £55,000 | Permanent

Published: 14.05.24 Ref: BBBH47085_1715681179

A software house with modern, data driven software solutions is looking for an Agile Project Manager to join the team. They've grown a lot over the last few years and this role has come around due to further growth. As a company, they're committed to staying ahead of the curve and have suite of very successful software products, working with clients in both the private and public sectors.

They have an established Agile Project Management function, so you'll have people to lean and learn form. There's genuine scope to climb the ladder with clearly set out criteria in how to progress within the company - they really are obsessed with seeing people succeed. On top of this, they fund accreditations/certifications to stand you in good stead for your career as well as getting a full day every month dedicated to learning/upskilling.

Requirements for the role:

** Software background / experience working with a range of technical people / close to technical teams - at the very least, you'll need to be able to understand things from a technical perspective and be able to convey this to non-technical people

** Full Project Management lifecycle experience - this may suit someone that is currently within a smaller software company and has a lot of responsibility, rather than someone that is at a massive bank and is a smaller cog in a big machine

** Extensive experience applying Agile principles, processes and practices - the company really epitomises what it means to be Agile, so experience of Agile Project Management is essential

** Exposure to budgeting - you don't need to have specifically been responsible of managing the budget but at least been in and around conversations

** Experience working on Web Application and Software Development projects

** Internal and external Stakeholder Management experience

** Good understanding of Software Development practices

** Experience of managing multiple projects at once

** Experience of managing their own projects

Nice to haves:

** Exposure to/experience of other Project Management methodologies such as Kanban and Waterfall - some of their clients use these methodologies and you will need to be open to working with them

** Prior career experience working within tech i.e., as a Developer or Tester

** Experience working with a wide range of size of customers

** Experience working within Financial Services of Pensions

** Prince qualification

The company are based in Altrincham and have a hybrid working policy. They'd expect you to be in the office at least once per week, but this may be more than once per week on the odd occasion. Client visits may be expected a couple of times per year, but this will be planned well in advance and completely covered by expenses. In terms of budget, they can pay up to £55,000 with potential to go slightly above this for the perfect candidate. In terms of benefits, they have a bonus, strong pension, private medical, life assurance and more.

If you're an Agile Project Manager that wants to join a growing software company, then please apply and/or contact Jack Steven at Cathcart Technology.

Candidates

A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.

Software Engineer - Edinburgh

THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.

Test Analyst – Aberdeen

I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.

Software Developer – Glasgow

He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.

Technical Author – Edinburgh

She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.

Software Engineer – Manchester

He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.

Infrastructure Architect – Glasgow

I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.

Transformation Consultant – Leeds

Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties

Software Developer – Glasgow

She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.

QA Engineer – Glasgow

He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.

Data Scientist – Manchester

Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.

Software Developer – Lincoln

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.

Software Engineer – Edinburgh

Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.

MI Analyst – Bolton

It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal

Solutions Architect – Glasgow

I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!

Software Developer – Northampton
