The Role

Global Outsourcing is an exciting, dynamic and fast-growing environment. The firm's clients are typically large organisations that require us to provide a suite of services on a year-round basis. In all cases, there are multiple deliverables occurring on a cyclical basis.

Within their growing team they already have a governance framework and a supporting PMO team working at a variety of levels, along with a senior programme manager leading the team. They are now looking for a junior project manager to further help in transforming their client experience, taking responsibility for the delivery of client projects and overseeing the work of their PMO team.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate experience and ability in project management. Their skill set will mean that the firm's clients and existing team will recognise you as an expert in your field, you will be able to both define new projects and will pick up existing projects, running them autonomously to achieve the goals of the project.

The role will be based in the Bristol office where the successful candidate will be involved in client facing projects across their Global Business Services and Service Charge Accounting service lines.

  • Managing risks and issues

  • Tracking of deliverables & monitor progress
  • Report on project status, risks and escalation, both internally and to clients
  • Helping the Senior Project Manager to manage the existing PMO team, acting as role model and working with them to develop skill sets
  • Develop strong relationships with clients and be seen as an integral member of the project delivery team
  • Champion effective project management across the business
  • Requirements
  • Strong project management experience in (in order of preference) a Finance environment, Professional Services or Financial Services
  • Experience of working in client-facing roles
  • Experienced in managing projects both with and without a PMO / Project Office in place
