Agile Project Manager

Manchester &/or Remote

The Company and Role

You'll be joining one of the UK's largest digital brands as they continue on their Agile journey. They have a varied and interesting tech portfolio (products and services) that you'll get to put your unique spin on helping manage.

They're responsive to ideas and change, committed to staying ahead of the curve and listening to their people. Think cloud transformations, greenfield projects, modern technologies, methods, and principles. In other words, there's always something new and exciting round the corner. This kind of opportunity to have such an impact on a well known brand is rare, and truly career defining.

HQ'd in Manchester, they trust in you to work your magic from home, on-site, or a mix of both. Times have changed and they know it, there's no one size fits all policy here, they will work with you and adapt to suit.

The Role

You'll:

· be an advocate for all that is Agile, facilitating stand-ups, ceremonies, planning meeting retrospectives, whilst making sure that user stories are translated into actionable tasks.

· help deliver complex digital projects whilst breaking down barriers for your team

· create clarity and predictability within your team through the use of tools and metrics like story mapping, roadmaps, sprint plans, burn down charts, cycle times etc.

· identity and manage impediments faced by the team through strong communication with the wider teams and stakeholders.

· encourage the team to be self-organising whilst building a safe environment so that issues can be raised without fear of criticism or judgement, with a focus on the positives and problem solving.

We're looking for a mix of the following:

· Experience in a Scrum Master, Project Manager, and/or Delivery role

· Strong decision making, prioritisation, interpersonal, and communication skills

· Knowledge of Agile, Lean, and Waterfall methods

· Experience using a variety of Agile Project Management methods

· Experience delivering products and/or services within a complex technology portfolio

What's on offer

· salary up to £60,000 p/a

· Bonus (25%)

· Pension Scheme (8%)

· Private medical care

· Funded accreditations

· Remote working and flexi-hours

· Life assurance

· + loads more

We can help you prepare interviews and offer some great tips to help candidates get the best possible start.

Process

Before we assess a candidate and put them forward, we’ll do a phone interview to get a better understanding of the type you’re looking for, your goals and plans.

Preparation

We know exacly what employers are looking, especially our clients, because they told us. We can help you prepare for the interview and shape up for meeting their team.

Branding

Personal branding is a term you may or may not be familiar with. In our connected world, it pays to be fully prepared for what happens when employees search your name.

Our clients

Candidates

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

Software Engineer – Manchester

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Software Developer – Northampton

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

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

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.
