Job Description

The Ashdown Group has been engaged by a Financial Services Software House to find a client facing Finance Project Manager to join their growing team.

The company supply technical solutions to the banking sector for a variety of services and this role requires an individual with solid experience with UK mortgage products.

The role will focus on the delivery of software solutions to finance sector clients across the UK, so some travel and occasional overnight stays are expected. You are likely to be working on multiple projects at once; typically one or two larger projects and a small handful of change projects as well.

Solid PM skills and excellent attention to detail are essential to be considered and the successful candidate must be accustomed to working in a structured project management manner. Whilst the company doesn't strictly follow the PRINCE 2 methodology, should you hold PRINCE2 qualifications - or have prior experience working to this process - it would strongly support your application.

To be considered you require the below skills and experience:

*Finance sector experience particularly with UK mortgage products
*Project Planning with internal teams
*Client management and engagement
*Full lifecycle project management from inception to completion
*Project Budget Management up to values of £1million
*Resource and deadline Management
*Keep all relevant stakeholders up to date on project progress
*Produce ISO compliant project documentation

Your interpersonal skills are at least as important as your project management skills and you will need to be personable and charismatic in front of clients, whilst being pragmatic and incisive at the same time.

My client is flexible and can accommodate both less experienced Project Managers looking to move up and also more experienced candidates with substantial experience to offer already. The salary range on offer of £30-50,000 per annum reflects this. The role also benefits from a matched pension arrangement, healthcare provision after 12 months service and bonus opportunity.
