Job Description

An experienced Programme Director is required for an initial 6 month contract, with a leading Retail Client. You will have the responsibility of leading, delivering and planning large scale IT transformation programmes within the organisation as there is a continuous programme of work to improve and sustain the major strategic technology platforms, currently being used. In addition to this, this role requires you to manage third party contributions to the programmes, as well as monitor programme and project progress, managing budgets and monitoring actual expenditure and costs against implemented solutions. You will be instrumental in the quality assurance and overall integrity of programmes, managing risks to the successful outcome including dependencies and the interfaces between sub-projects.

The ideal candidate will have extensive experience of working in a programme management or programme director role, within the retail sector as a key point of contact to communicate with the stakeholders. Previous experience of managing multi million pound technical programmes with multiple concurrent projects, as well as working within an Agile environment are essential. It is important that the prospective candidate has a sound knowledge of performance evaluation and change management principles as well as leading a team in excess of 5 project managers.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to work for a Global retailer, ultimately meaning that you will have international exposure and the chance to travel at least twice a year. With a huge body of programmes to get your teeth stuck into, the ideal candidate has the potential to be on a long term contract as their role and key accountabilities expand. You will equally have exposure to the latest technologies, as well as a forward thinking and dynamic environment to work in. You will play an integral part of building efficient teams, as well as reporting directly to the CIO of the business.
