Full Time
My client is looking for a motivated and hands-on technical project manager to join their team on a 4 month contract with possible extension. Ideally with a background in retail banking or finance.

This challenging role involves management of one or more IT projects - including development, infrastructure and third party changes, on a range of infrastructure and systems.

This is a hands on technical project management role which will require someone that has solid project management experience, in an Agile environment and a good mix of technical skills such as: Windows Server 2003/2008/20012; VMWARE and virtual servers; MSMQ, IIS, Microsoft SCOM; Thin Client, SQL Server, SSRS, SSIS, Biztalk, BM+

The successful candidate will have been involved as a technical project manager in the full project life cycle of a number of software development and infrastructure projects and their ongoing hand over to support. The ideal candidate will be very comfortable working with user and management communities and accustomed to delivering pragmatic resolutions. The candidate will also have a good working knowledge of Agile/SCRUM.

Essential skills required for the role -

• Hands-on Technical Project Management of IT projects
• Good working knowledge of Agile/SCRUM
• Excellent technical background (Windows Server, MSMQ, IIS, BM+, VMWARE, Thin Client, Biztalk, SQL Server, SSRS, SSIS, Microsoft .NET)
• Excellent communication skills
• Good problem management abilities
• Experience of financial systems
• High energy level and ability to drive projects through to completion

The ideal candidate will be a self starter and strong team worker who is hard working, with excellent attention to detail and who enjoys giving that extra bit to complete their workload effectively. The person needs to be result-oriented and able to adapt to fast changing environments.

Due to location you must be able to drive, and if successful you will be required to repeat a basic CRB check

The role is ideally looking to start within the next 3 weeks, but you must be available to interview immediately.
