Senior level project management roles are few and far between and this one has it all, from leading and developing a team of project management specialists to advising on ‘gold standard’ project management, to ensuring that ‘best practice’ PM is at the heart of the research process.
Project management is a key focus for this successful business and this particular team is part of a wider project management function which runs throughout the entire business. PM is highly respected and very established across the business, with a very clear career path and a high level of recognition. This agency truly understands the value of exemplary project management and has really invested into the function with some brilliant, recent senior-level hires within the business.
The project management and research teams sit side by side and they work together to jointly address client challenges. The research is consumer-focused and the clients include leading global brands. As well as leading and developing your team, you will be working on major proposals and pitches and high level costings and you will be leading senior clients on all aspects of PM – this is a very client-focused team. You will take the lead on ensuring that the research and project management teams are working in close collaboration to deliver high quality research programmes.
We are looking for an established and high calibre project management director to motivate and inspire the team; a strong leader who can set and implement the project management strategy and embed the project management team within the research function.
You will need a track record of implementing and leading on project management processes and ‘best practice’, be someone who is not afraid to challenge the norm, who comes up with creative new ways of working and provides ‘troubleshooting’ on projects. You will need strong ‘people skills’ and an ability to lead by example, you will be able to mentor and guide teams and create strong relationships with senior stakeholders on the research side and through the wider business. You must have end-to-end project management experience and have strong client leadership credentials.
Culturally, the environment is a breath of fresh air – people are empowered and encouraged to add value and as a result, it feels energised and upbeat.
If you would like to be part of this, by heading up and growing a project management function in an agency which is doing brilliantly, in terms of winning new business and also using new and innovative techniques to conduct research – please do get in touch – it’s a really exciting place to be.
