Harvey Nash is working in partnership with Metropolitan Housing to recruit an Lead Project Manager as they embark on a period of people, process and systems transformation.
Metropolitan is one of the country’s largest providers of genuinely affordable local housing and is on target to deliver around 1000 homes per year by 2018/19.
They have been on an exciting journey over the last few years and have undergone a complete financial turnaround; they are now one of the Housing Sector’s top performers, delivering great results for their customers, the company and their stakeholders.
Metropolitan Housing is now relocating its IT Function from London to Derby which brings with it the opportunity to design a new Target Operating Model. Aligning technology closer to the business will help support Metropolitan in achieving their strategic ambitions.
They want to deliver projects using Agile methods, and give staff modern, updated infrastructure. Putting the customer first is key for the organisation and enabling this is the IT Function. They are undertaking a number of change initiatives to improve their proposition which will have a significant social impact.
The Opportunity – Lead Project Manager:
The Lead Project Manager will have responsibility for overseeing a portfolio of business IT projects, monitoring their progress, liaising with the individual Project Managers and Business Partners and reporting on the overall portfolio to the Head of Business Systems.
You will be required to provide expert knowledge and support to implement effective and consistent delivery within the organisation.
The Lead Project Manager will have a proven track record of effectively delivering a portfolio of IT related projects from initiation to completion, on time & in budget as well as the ability to directly and Matrix manage resources.
The key opportunity for this role will be to lead the shaping of the project management methodology across the organisation and supporting the business on their journey to agile. This will suit an individual who can influence change, win ‘hearts and minds’ and make substantial difference in this period of change.
What’s on offer:
Metropolitan Housing is a registered Charity and this is a chance to join an organisation that is commercially minded with a social purpose. There are a wide variety of projects for an experienced Project Manager to be a part of a Metropolitan and an opportunity to embed a true methodology. If you would like to be a part of an organisation delivering significant change to the UK housing market, then this could be an opportunity to build your career.
In return Metropolitan can offer a competitive salary, a comprehensive benefits package and the chance to be a part of this exciting journey. Please apply or contact Michelle Morgan at Harvey Nash to discuss further.
