Joining the global technology function, the Senior Technical Project Manager will work across two projects – one covering the consolidation of two business units in France (bringing the systems together) and the other helping to get the deployment of a centralised Oracle finance platform over the line. Working with a cross-functional delivery team, this position will take responsibility for managing the delivery of technology aspects of the programme.

  • Ability to fluently interpret burn up- and burn down charts, demonstrate experience of measuring team velocity, apply effective techniques for backlog management, inherently know what good looks like in terms of user stories, defining epics etc. etc. The more agile experience the better; no less than 3 years.
  • Recent same or similar large programme experience of planning and tracking, cross work stream dependency management, issue and risk management and pre-production quality assurance validation.
  • Ability to manage and adapt to stressful environments with challenging deadlines.
