Job Description

Project Manager: Telecoms / IT Managed Services
Location: Central London
Circa £40,000 - £50,000 + Excellent benefits including 25 days holiday, pension, subsidised travel, BUPA healthcare, dental care, iPhone, Gym and more

The Role
Working within the service delivery function, you`ll be joining the team as an experienced Project Manager and will be playing a key part in the successful delivery of cloud based voice and data managed solutions into the UK based corporate sector.

You`ll be working on new customer implementation projects alongside existing customer moves / changes and migrations and as such will be well versed in the implementation of complex IP voice and data projects. The company work with a number of technology platforms including Xaas, cloud, network connectivity, voice and collaboration therefore this role will suit a Project Manager from a similar background such as an ISP/Telco/MSP.

This is a Fast Track 100 technology company that continues to deploy cutting edge technical solutions and as such, while methodology and process is important, this is not a rigid environment so would be expected to demonstrate a flexible approach to suit the particular project and customer requirements.

You`ll own the project from start to finish and prior experience of working within an expanding technology company would be beneficial - simply to understand the all round aspect of the culture and the need / desire to do what is needed to deliver the project & solution to your customers.

Skills and Experience:
*Proven track record of the delivery of telecoms IP voice and data solutions.
*An understanding of the project life cycle linked to delivering carrier based technical solutions and exposure to lines, circuits, hardware, enterprise and channel resellers.
*Formal methodology background combined with a think on your feet attitude that allows the project to be delivered on time, and within budget. Prince 2 is the example but this is not a rigid and structured environment and you`ll be expected to adapt your methodology to suit the needs of the particular project.
*Knowledge and demonstrable experience of project planning processes, techniques, methodologies, risk and commercial savvy.
*Stakeholder management, negotiation and conflict management skills.
*Ability to manage uncertainty and understand the impact of this on the project; proactive and forward-looking.
*The ability to push back when needed whilst keeping the customer happy.
*Understanding of business drivers and complex organisational designs.
*Knowledge of telecoms business planning and provisioning process.
*Ability to interact with technical engineers inside the business and non-technical customers outside of the company.

The majority of the work will be around the Greater London region but you`ll be expected to work on National projects alongside the rest of the team which means that travel and occasional overnight stays will be part of the role.

The Company
With spacious modern offices based in Central London and exciting plans for the near future; this Fast Track 100 company offers a fantastic opportunity for an experienced yet ambitious Project Manager to take a key role in an expanding and dynamic technology company.
