Job Description

Job Title: IT Project Manager
Location: Sheffield
Salary: £40k - £50k plus great benefits

The Opportunity
Are you looking for the chance to work on high-profile projects which really make a difference to companies' business strategies?

Are you an IT Project Manager who wants to get involved in business infrastructure?

If so we have a great role for you!
Owing to our expansion we're looking for an IT Project Manager to oversee delivery and implementation of top of the range business analytics software for an ambitious IT company based in Sheffield city centre.

The Role
As the IT Project Manager you will be responsible for overseeing the full project lifecycle from concept through to installation and then post-install support for a really innovative business modelling and infrastructure analytics program.

Working closely with other divisions within the company such as the sales and technical teams whilst reporting directly into the MD you will coordinate the delivery and implementation of a bespoke service.
Alongside organising resource needs, timescales, potential risks and project milestones as IT Project Manager you will also ensure all the hard work you're doing is monitored through the internal analytics software. As you may imagine because we aim to increase our client's efficiency we're constantly looking to improve our own internal systems to make sure we're at the top of our game and as the IT Project Manager you will be a key player in this.

Although mainly office based (complete with onsite parking in Sheffield city centre) we do value client collaboration and developing long term relationships so we would like you to get out and about occasionally to sit down face to face and talk through their needs. This allows us to get an accurate picture of how to tailor our software to ensure they get the best, most relevant package to allow them to make informed business decisions.

The Candidate
If you are an IT Project Manager who has worked on assignments where software has been installed and supported within the utilities, transport, infrastructure or asset management environments we'd like to hear from you!

This IT Project Manager position will give you the opportunity to work on large, high profile projects for globally recognised companies so you will need to have experience overseeing similar ventures, whilst utilising your PRINCE2 or MSP qualification. We operate within a PRINCE2 project management environment so this knowledge will come in very handy, as would a strong working knowledge of MS Project.

We also work to ISO 9001 and ISO 270001 requirements so if you have any experience of these accreditations it would be viewed as beneficial.

From a personality perspective you will be situated in the middle of a large, friendly internal team and be constantly liaising with external clients so you will need to be a people person who is a confident negotiator and able to manage client expectations whilst keeping them on side, no easy feat! We're sure you're an old hand at it though.
From a practical point of view because the role will involve some travel to client sites you will need to be able to drive and happy to get out and about on occasion.

The Company
Having been born out of a research project over 10 years ago we now provide analytical technology to utilities, transports, manufacturing and financial companies across the UK and are now looking to expand into EMEA and the US. This helps them plan and budget for physical asset investment.

The IT Project Manager role you're interested in (you've read this far at least!) has come about because we have won a number of large new projects and responsibility for overseeing these has become too great for the current provision we have in the office at the moment. Owing to this success we are only expecting the company to grow and win more contracts so you're going to be busy from day one!

The Package
£40k - £50k basic salary (dependent upon experience)
22 days holiday
Pension scheme
Health plan/gym membership
City centre parking
Phone
