Software Project Manager

Glasgow | £40,000 - £50,000 | Permanent

Published: 18.01.23 Ref: BBBH40823_1674076234

Digital Project Manager required for a well-known and expanding Agency in Glasgow. This is a role for a Project Manager who is comfortable working across multiple projects and clients at once and who will work closely with both the software web development team and the clients.

The company:

They are a Digital Agency based in Glasgow with around 200 staff, and are looking to grow even more. Throughout Covid-19 and afterwards, they have continued to be very busy and feel lucky to have a diverse and large portfolio of clients. They continue to win lots of work that comes off the back of several new client wins over the last 12 months. Their clients range from finance to hospitality to travel, to worldwide event holders and they are really thriving.

They have a great office in Glasgow city centre and they would ideally have someone on a hybrid approach. A lot of their current work is building websites for a variety of clients and this is where the need comes to hire this Project Manager.

The role:

The organisation has a number of software clients and the development team are building several proper applications. You will be working closely alongside the Web Dev team and having an understanding in this technical area would be hugely beneficial. This role would be best suited to a Project Manager from a Digital background, ideally from an agency or digital consultancy. The key for this role is to work closely with both the clients and the development team and to understand their requirements.

Initially, you will join as the bridge between the Account Management and the Development teams, however eventually you will be dealing directly with the clients. You will need to be able to speak at a fairly technical level in order to understand their software requirements and pass this back to the Developers. This isn't a highly technical role, but having the ability to 'chat' about Web Development would be perfect. Currently, there is Trello software in place and having experience of this or a similar technology would be beneficial.

In short, the overall purpose of the role is to manage client projects by liaising with the client and the web/digital team to deliver the project on time, within budget and to the client specification.

This opportunity would suit an individual who would fit into their relaxed culture and isn't looking for a rigid environment. This is a position that can offer natural career progression within the company, whilst working for a people orientated business.

Our clients

Candidates

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

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

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

Software Engineer – Manchester

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

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

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

Data Scientist – Manchester

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

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

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

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

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

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

Software Developer – Northampton

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

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
