Project Manager - Data Programme
Rate: £400-£450PD
Start: ASAP
Duration: 3 Months


My client is mid-way through a large, transformation data programme involving 4 delivery teams, 2 sponsors and 200+ stakeholders. One of the 4 key aspects of the programme is the implementation and roll-out of a new campaign management tool predominantly across marketing and editorial, to enable a joined-up multi-channel approach.

An opportunity for someone to project manager the final phase of the migration to this new tool. They have an agile, cross-functional delivery team covering marketing, data and digital functions. The engineers, although part of the team, manage their own backlog so this role would be critical in understanding the business problems to be solved, translating them into requirements (in the form of stories) for the teams to work on and ensuring the workflow between all parties runs smoothly.

*Update and maintain the marketing board, working with the Product Manager, BA and the team to ensure accuracy and usefulness

*Organise, plan and facilitate necessary workshops, ensuring clarity of purpose, clear agendas, outcomes required and the right people in the room to achieve those things
*Keep key stakeholders informed (tailoring communications and levels of detail appropriately)
*Facilitate and document decision making
*Identify risks and issues and keep a RAID log up to date, mitigating where possible, escalating where required
*Work with the Product Manager and team to decide the quarterly OKR
*Provide a weekly progress status for the programme sponsor meeting
*Coordinate 3rd party contract resources

Knowledge, skills and experience required

*Demonstrable Project Management and planning experience in an agile environment
