Head of Projects / Head of PMO
Location: Derby, with flexibility and hybrid working model
Salary & Benefits: to £70,000 p/a plus a range of benefits inc. holidays, pension, health, and a variety of local benefits
A large Derby-based business currently embarking on a significant omni-channel transformation programme are working exclusively with Investigo to recruit a Head of Projects / Head of PMO to lead and grow a team of Business Analysts and Project Managers (approx 5 in total). The role will combine the day-to-day leadership of the PMs and BAs with the overarching responsibility for shaping and managing the programme, whilst ensuring suitable PMO tools, standards, processes and methodologies are implemented.
This multi-faceted role combines people leadership with hands-on delivery and therefore requires someone with previous experience of managing PMs and/or BAs (a blended team would be great, but not essential!). You'll have a good breadth of experience across project delivery methodologies, tools, and processes as well as the ability to shape and define their use in a practical and pragmatic way. A senior member of the Technology Leadership Team, you'll be confident collaborating with IT staff, suppliers, and key stakeholders whilst "leading by example" in your approach to delivering this high profile, customer-facing, programme.
This is a great opportunity to join a business voted one of the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For 2020, and a business which is investing significantly in transformation. In return you will receive a salary up to £70,000 p/a plus a range of benefits inc. holidays, pension, health, and a variety of local benefits in the East Midlands.
