We are looking for an experienced Business Change Project Manager to be responsible for the delivery of a wide range of projects across varying areas of the company.

You will be responsible for producing, owning and managing the overall project plan and will be the single point of contact for key business stakeholders in regard to managing their expectations around scope, timescales, risks, dependencies, etc.

Your profile:
  • At least 3 years' experience in a project management role
  • Previous experience delivering large business change projects
  • Comfortable picking up projects in areas that you have not previously managed
  • Confident applying techniques to deliver projects in shorter timescales than other businesses may believe are achievable
  • Experienced working with a cross-functional project team comprising members of multiple departments across the company
  • Happy to apply learnings from varying project methodologies to suit the needs of the business rather than wanting to stick to a single approach at all times
  • Wide range of experience in different business departments would be useful
  • General background in E-Commerce or Retail is preferable but not mandatory
  • Passionate, we are looking for people who really care and enjoy what they do and can bring that to our business, when you enjoy doing something you always do it better!

  • Determined to deliver the changes and improvements that we need to succeed - you have the power to make the difference
  • Motivated by an opportunity that allows you to be closely involved with business stakeholders and understand how you can make a difference rather than just working from a detailed technical specification
  • Ready for a challenge, we have a world of opportunities ahead of us but need to work hard to make sure we realize our full potential
