Job Overview

About The Role

People come to AO for appliances they can rely on. And that dependable efficiency runs through everything we do - with projects and programmes running smoothly and on time, led by our top-notch Project Managers.

You’ll be making sure everything is delivered exactly as it should be, and joining up the dots between tech teams, stakeholders, legal, commercial and third-party suppliers. Every team at AO is unique, so you’ll need to stich together the different ways of working (whether that’s Waterfall or Agile) into one seamless delivery.

You can be sure that no two days will ever be the same here, with a variety of projects to get stuck into such as website development, infrastructure, technology integration, major transformation and so much more! It’ll be fast-paced, jam packed full of fun, and will give you exposure across the whole business. We want to see go-getters thrive, so if you can bring us the PM experience we need, we can offer you the opportunity to develop your skills and sky-rocket your career.

Here's What You Can Expect To Be Doing

  • End-to-end management of software development projects
  • Embed our Project Delivery Framework into all our live projects
  • Manage time, cost, and quality of activities
  • Consider risk and issues at each step of the way
  • Communicate to all the different people invested in the project, both technical teams and non-technical stakeholders
  • Make sure the project scope is continuously understood by everyone involved
  • If any changes are proposed, make sure they’re in line with the project parameters - e.g. scope, budget, schedules
  • Identify any steps needed to implement service transition and handover into a ‘business-as-usual programme’

A Few Things About You

  • Previous experience working as a Project Manager, managing software developers
  • Knowledge of both Agile & Waterfall methodologies
  • Confidence to juggle a wide range of projects at any given time
  • The ability to communicate with both technical and non-technical audiences
  • Solid risk and issue management experience, governance planning, and finance/cost control

Project management qualifications are a huge bonus (such as PMI, APM, Prince2) but we’d still love to hear from you if you’ve not got any - as we know experience is just as valuable!
