PMO Lead – UK Wide

An Overview of the role

Here at Capgemini our Business and Technology Solutions business unit support our clients through large scale transformations, enabled by brilliant technology solutions. We want the very best for our clients, and we know that the technology we implement can help them achieve great things. This is why we are looking to recruit established and motivated PMO Lead's to join us and be part of this journey. We are looking for people who love building great relationships with clients, and who naturally engender trust from those they work with. Coming to work with us means using the right change management techniques to guide our clients through a seamless programme of activity which ensures the smooth running of our technology-enabled transformation projects.
 

Why this role
  • As the person responsible for the management of our programme office, you’ll have a handle on all elements of the programme, from project management support and control, risk and issue management and the necessary financial controls.
  • You’ll ensure the smooth running of the end to end programme through working flexibly across the following areas:
  1. Project management support; including change management, risk and issue management, reporting, status tracking, and project reporting. You’ll do all of these using tools such as Clarity & Open Workbench and MS Project.
  2. Project financial management – tracking of budgets and costs
  3. Compliance – ensuring that the programme meets the standards we expect within Capgemini
  4. Provision of standard documents and tools
Why you?
  • A strong track record of successful delivery in PMO roles within an IT and Business Change environment.  
  • A background in consultancy or professional services delivery would be advantageous though not essential.
  • A deep understanding of the impact PMO has on good project and programme management.
  • Brilliant communications and interpersonal skills which you’ll use to relate to clients to help them to understand what PMO can offer to them.
  • Demonstrable experience in starting up a small PMO or elements of a larger PMO or in rescuing an underperforming PMO.
  • Proven capability to lead junior PMO team members and to guide/mentor their development by building supportive and productive team relationships.
  • A strong and enduring desire to further your own personal development through studying for ISEB qualifications in PPSO.
Why us?

While we’re a global consultancy, we’re made up of supportive, close-knit communities.  Everyone wants to get the best solutions for our customers and create the best working environment.

 

 

Upskilling
Potential is just as important to us as having the required skills. If you have the right mindset, we might be able to provide you with bespoke training.  So, if you’re not sure you have all the skills you need, but you’re still passionate about the role, please apply and we’ll see if we can support you.
