IT Project Manager – Public Sector (Inside IR35) – Edinburgh
RZ Group are working with one of Scotland’s largest utility providers who have an opening for an IT focused Project Manager to support large programme in preparation for it moving to the final stages of delivery.
The programme itself is in the last phase of data ingestion and data modelling scheduled from now through to the start of next year and the decommissioning happening from March ahead of either project closure or potential further work required off the back of delivery. The final phases are being delivered using Agile Scrum, though the overall project predominately runs off a waterfall governance model, therefore knowledge and experience in both would be advantageous. Further to this, it is likely that the Project Manager will also take on the role of Scrum Master later this year so previous experience as a Scrum Master or working as part of Agile Teams would be very useful.
In order to be considered for this role, candidates are required to have the following skills/experience:
– 5 years (minimum) experience working as a IT Project Manager, ideally within the public sector or utilities.
– Proven experience being able to pick up large in flight project/programme and successfully deliver on time
– Experience delivering against Waterfall/Prince II methodology is required
– Recent experience as a Scrum Master and delivering projects in Agile/SCRUM environments is required
– Experience creating project plans with a team and delivering against them as well as managing associated budgets
– Strong technical background, ideally delivering cloud based projects and using associated technologies would be highly desirable.
– Strong communication skills and able to quickly build rapport with senior level stakeholders plus external third parties.
