What is the opportunity?

The Agile Project Manager is required to manage large scale, complex/risky business and/or IT related projects using a mixture of traditional (PMI's PMBOK) and Agile (SCRUM, etc.) principles and practices.

The Agile Project Manager will be required to use a traditional project management approach (PMI PMBOK) to manage key aspects of the projects including risk, stakeholder management, status reporting, financial management, etc. and manage the software delivery aspects of the projects alongside the established hybrid agile scrum product team(s).

The Agile Project Manager may frequently be responsible for managing multiple projects of medium complexity simultaneously. Their prime responsibility is to ensure that the project(s) delivers the required scope (results) within the required standard of quality and the specified constraints of time and cost.

The Agile Project Manager operates within broad parameters, established by corporate business plans and Trustee Board committed dates, and is accountable for the success of assigned projects. Given the scope of this role, the Agile Project Manager must be familiar with broad business and technical planning, and capable of leading, partnering and coordinating multiple initiatives. The Agile Project Manager has expertise in senior level planning, project management, implementation and change management practices as well as exposure to agile scrum practices. This position advises senior management and executive on appropriate implementation plans and outcomes.

The Agile Project Manager must effectively establish and maintain complex working relationships across business area boundaries to ensure that the project(s) plans meet the goals, objectives and mandate of the business areas and that the changes are cooperatively accepted by the business area(s).

The ideal candidate will have experience managing IT, security, information management or analytics projects with a strong technical background. If you are passionate about building positive relationships with clients and implementing solutions that bring business value we want to hear from you!
