Job description

Head of PMO - Ecommerce/Agile/Transformation

Head of PMO – Ecommerce/Agile/Transformation

I’m working with a retail/ecommerce giant to assist them in hiring a new position within their CIO.  The role is a beautiful blend of developing a PMO from scratch and also ensuring that the business strategy is supported by the activity of the portfolio.  This is a real greenfield opportunity and needs someone who is well versed in creating PMOs from scratch.  This really needs a flexible, light touch approach to governance, given the pace at which change & projects are delivered.  You’ll help build a structure which assists in the classification and prioritisation of projects that support the business strategy, and have the ability to communicate professional with the exec team.  The environment lends itself to a test and learn ethos, and with circa 90% of the portfolio being tech focused (delivered in a relatively formal Agile environment), will need someone who can adapt to manage a project list that is high churn and evolutionary. Although there is a bias towards technical delivery at the moment, it’s important that you have wider business change experience and are understanding of how change is delivered both internally and to external customers also.

The business is based in West London and will require a couple of days a fortnight in the office.  Outside of that the role can be delivered remotely.  The salary on offer will be between £80-100,000 plus some great benefits.

As an industry leading, nationwide Marketing, Digital, Analytics, IT and Design recruitment agency, we are continually receiving new assignments to work on, so keep a close eye on our website, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter pages for a full list of current permanent and interim opportunities as well as marketplace news and fun stuff.
Forward Role is operating as an employment agency.
