This is a great opportunity to join a renowned company known for providing a range of services such as property litigation, property portfolio management and acquisition of commercial land. This role reports into the COO.

Following investment from a private equity firm in recent years, my client has grown rapidly and enhanced their reputation for outstanding professional services and delivering innovative products & service solutions. They have continued growth through service and market development and have taken a large market share from their competitors. The capital boost has helped the business cope well fiscally throughout the recent economic conditions, proving that they are a stable organisation who can offer their employees reassurances on job security.

The company has reached a size now where they require the expertise of an experienced Project Manager who can implement/improve processes, take on projects internally between different departments and liaise directly with the executive board. This is a client facing role so will involve working closely with the company's key partners too.

Key Duties:

  • Working with new and existing clients to understand their strategic needs and requirements for the effective delivery of legal services.
  • Managing multiple complex projects simultaneously
  • To take ownership of assigned projects through their lifecycle, adhering to agreed quality gates and controls, whilst ensuring they are delivered on time and to budget
  • Building detailed project plans, applying appropriate project principles and controls throughout;
  • Providing day-to-day project management and leadership of business wide projects throughout the full project cycle from inception to project close;

Experience Required:

  • 5+ years' experience in project management, ideally working in a Professional Services environment
  • Experience working within cross-functional teams
  • Successful project delivery using a variety of different approaches - e.g. waterfall, agile - and flexibility in their approach to delivery
  • Project management certification such as PRINCE 2 or relevant qualification or experience
  • Ability to deliver projects requiring significant business change
  • Excellent communication skills (written, spoken and presentation)
  • Experienced at communicating effectively with senior stakeholders across the full range of business and technology functions including Executive level
  • Attention to detail and the ability to analyse and resolve complex, multi-faceted issues in a timely and effective manner

My client plans to continue their period of rapid growth over the next few years, so if you are an ambitious individual with a desire to take ownership of this position, then now is the perfect time to join! Along with fantastic career prospects, they are offering 25 days holiday, remote working, private medical, free parking, and a social spending allowance.
