Job Description

Do you always deliver what you’ve promised? So do we.

At the heart of every great technology solution is great management, always making sure that the project delivers what it set out to do and matches expectations.


About you

You balance a strategic outlook with a practical focus on day-to-day activities and changing needs, and your business knowledge matches your excellent teamwork, communication and negotiating skills.


About the role

The lifecycle of an Avanade project runs all the way from planning to sales through execution and closure, with many stops in between. As a Manager in Program and Project Management, you look after all of them.

Your great management and people skills are at the heart of every project, across different businesses and borders, and you create and implement effective plans that meet operational objectives. Your multi-faceted role draws on your business knowledge to coordinate scope, schedule, budget, quality and risks, monitoring and reporting to enable a fast response to any issue.

You build a collaborative team to support you guide front-line operations, forge strong client and partner relationships, and manage internal and external stakeholder expectations.


Day to day, you will:

Develop, implement and maintain a detailed project work plan, including appropriate controls, governance structures, timelines, budget and quality outcomes

Mentor and manage Avanade and sub-contractor staff

Develop and implement change enablement processes throughout the project

Contribute to the sales process, including estimating work effort and expenses using Avanade's standard tools

Engage and partner with appropriate onshore, offshore and near shore workforces, including service licensing agreements (SLAs)

Travel as required.


Your skills

You really enjoy working with minimal structure and you enable change around you. You think and work systematically and logically, and your strong communication and negotiating skills are backed up by technical skills and knowledge.


Your skills and experience include:

Experience with contract terms

Experience of at least one software development methodology

Knowledge of Microsoft platform technologies

Expertise in Microsoft Project

Experience in earned value reporting.

You will probably have a Bachelor’s degree in Business or a technology-related field, and we’d really like it if you are a Project Management Institute certified Project Management Professional.
