  • Plan and develop scope, goals, deliverables, required resources, work plan, budget, and timing for new initiatives. Ensure new work aligns with company priorities and is appropriately resourced.
  • Coordinate with cross-functional team members for optimal ROI and ensure that all parties are on track with project requirements, deadlines, and schedules.
  • Conduct quarterly/annual planning sessions for programs, including goals, outcome metrics (KPIs), sequencing/dependencies, and time lines.
  • Identify key requirements needed from cross-functional teams and external vendors, as necessary.
  • Analyse, evaluate, manage, and overcome program risks, produce program reports, and dashboards for management and stakeholders.
  • Establish effective project communication plans and execute them.
  • Facilitate change requests to ensure that all parties are informed of the impacts on schedule and budget.
  • Enforce discipline with teams and hold them accountable for maintaining focus and executing the plan.

You will be familiar with large Cap-Ex projects and IT programmes.
