Project Manager? Fancy working on some really interesting and complex projects?

Come and be part of our Digital Transformation…

About Us - Parcelforce Worldwide provides express parcel delivery across the UK. We employ over 5,500 people and operate across a network of 54 depots throughout the UK. Our intelligent use of technology helps ensure we stay one-step ahead, and everyone that works for us has the responsibility to create a smooth and efficient service. We are always thinking ahead, and we’re always looking for friendly and committed people to join our diverse and supportive team.

Your role in the team - As one of our Project Managers, you'll be working on a range of application based projects within our wider Digital Transformation programme (though there may be the occasional infrastructure focused project too). You’ll have the opportunity to engage with senior stakeholders within the business as well as key members of third party suppliers along with colleagues in many different teams to deliver your projects on time and on budget. You’ll also get to be part of our digital transformation programmes as we’re changing the way that Royal Mail Group and Parcelforce works…

Skills needed – You’ll be an experienced Project Manager who has the ability to multi-task, keep plates spinning and remain calm with an eye on a successful delivery. You’ll be proactive, a self-starter who uses their initiative to keep projects moving and your track record of delivering complex, enterprise projects will speak for itself. Your communication skills will be first class as you lead your team and work with a range of stakeholders (both technical and non-technical) across the business. As far as tech goes, you’ll know what’s what, but, you don’t need to be able to code! You’ll have a passion and be relentless in delivering projects which transform businesses.

What we offer - this is a 12 month fixed term contract. 

We are an inclusive employer with equality, diversity and fairness at the heart of our values. We welcome applications from individuals from diverse backgrounds and are committed to promoting fair participation and equality of opportunity for all of our job applicants. We’re proud to be in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2019 for a 6th consecutive year.
