You will be managing multiple projects at once and engaging with the business to find out what their needs are and translating these problems into projects. From day one you will need to find out what needs to be done and what the pain points are for various Stakeholders and support them throughout the change process.

The person

To be successful in this role you will need to fresh, innovative ideas and be a natural problem solver. You will be hungry for change and a driver in pushing out the box thinking and the ability to lead idea generation sessions to look for improvements across various systems and processes.
