You will be a well-respected, senior member of the team and help our IT Portfolio Manager to coach and mentor our team of 4 Project Managers and 1 Project Support Officer.

We will need a few things from you…

To be successful in this role you will be an experienced and accredited Project Manager (either Prince2 or Agile) and have an ability use both methodologies as needed, although the majority of projects in this team tend to be Waterfall in nature.

You will be a strong communicator and presenter, with good reporting skills, and proficiency across the full Microsoft Office suite including MS Project and PowerPoint.

As this role will help to mentor some of the more junior members of our team, some previous experience of having supported colleagues with their progression and development, and an interest in this, is desirable.

You will be adaptable to rapid pace of change, conflicting priorities, and immoveable deadlines.

    Information technology (IT) is the application of computers to store, study, retrieve, transmit, and manipulate data, or information, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. IT is considered a subset of information and communications technology (ICT). In 2012, Zuppo proposed an ICT hierarchy where each hierarchy level "contain[s] some degree of commonality in that they are related to technologies that facilitate the transfer of information and various types of electronically mediated communications". The term is commonly used as a synonym for computers and computer networks, but it also encompasses other information distribution technologies such as television and telephones. Several industries are associated with information technology, including computer hardware, software, electronics, semiconductors, internet, telecom equipment, and e-commerce. Humans have been storing, retrieving, manipulating, and communicating information since the Sumerians in Mesopotamia developed writing in about 3000 BC, but the term information technology in its modern sense first appeared in a 1958 article published in the Harvard Business Review; authors Harold J. Leavitt and Thomas L. Whisler commented that "the new technology does not yet have a single established name. We shall call it information technology (IT)." Their definition consists of three categories: techniques for processing, the application of statistical and mathematical methods to decision-making, and the simulation of higher-order thinking through computer programs.
