Newly created project leadership opportunity for a leading investment technology and consulting services company. Looking for a professional Project Manager with Private Equity system implementation experience such as with eFront or Investran type systems.

This career opportunity provides the prospect to work for a well respected and successful technology vendor & consultancy, which is expanding their European operation with the appointment of a Project Manager for their investment technology division in London.  This is a senior level project leadership position, handling new system implementations, upgrades and bespoke consulting projects, to ensure successful delivery within the agreed budgets and timescales.  With a growing company, this is also a great chance to influence and further enhance internal project management processes & procedures to ensure a robust project delivery operation for Tier 1 institutions.

 

Role Responsibilities :
- Accurately estimate, build, agree, maintain and communicate multi-phase, multi-tier, multi-party project plans with mixed discipline project teams comprised of Internal, Client and other 3rd party personnel.

-  To provide direction and leadership to the Client project teams, driving and managing projects with complexity and cultural challenges to a successful completion.

-  To ensure consistency between Client Proposals, Contracts, Project Scope and Project Definition Documents in terms of effort, resources, costs, timescales, deliverables, responsibilities, milestones and payment terms

-  Managing, controlling and monitoring project risks, progress against time and budget.

-  Have operated with clients at senior management level within financial institutions, whilst able to represent the company and the client diplomatically and effectively.
