Job Description

About the role

The lifecycle of an Avanade project runs all the way from opportunity and solutioning the deal, through to contract delivery, then eventual closure and operational support of the new service/system. As a Project Manager, also known as Delivery Manager at Avanade, you are accountable for the delivery of the project against the contract.

You support, monitor and report throughout the phases - sales, estimating, planning, mobilising and executing, right up to closure, ensuring regular communication with stakeholders and clients and monitoring financial performance.

Day to day, you will

  • Travel as needed.

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, planning and communication skills.

You are driven to achieve outcomes – both for your client and for your employer. You enjoy working with structure, although with a level of autonomy, and you think and work systematically and logically - with an attention to the daily detail. You are at home with enterprise technology and your business acumen means you understand what’s involved in bringing a client initiative to successful conclusion.

You probably have a Bachelor degree in Business or IT and you already have some years of experience working for a consulting company.

You’ve got great spoken and written communication skills, and your client-focussed attitude means you’re comfortable presenting to clients.

Your skills and experience are likely include:

  • Structured project delivery against a contract using the Agile approach
  • Setting and managing both internal and external stakeholder expectations
  • Managing large projects in oil and gas and mining client environments
  • Experience in operational technology data projects
  • Managing Microsoft implementations – eg. Azure, Dynamics 365, Office 365, Power BI Reporting, Power Platform, Data and AI
  • Using Azure DevOps (or JIRA) as the key tool to manage project work and backlog
  • Managing project schedule using Microsoft Project

You would also be at an advantage if you have:

  • Core Scrum certification
  • PMP or Prince 2 certification
  • ITIL certification
