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 have an inclusive, global first and deeply human 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 Senior Project Manager for the Infrastructure team, you look after all of them.  

Your infrastructure project 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 and Microsoft Office 365 deployment experience 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)

We are looking for people with demonstrated experience in the following:

Knowledge of contract terms

At least one software development methodology

Microsoft platform technologies and expertise in Microsoft Project

Office 365 deployment and upgrades
