What you'll be doing:

As a Programme Director you will play a pivotal role in Building and leading our high performing SAP Project Teams, working closely with stakeholders from all across the business. As part of this team, you will bring proven C-Suite relationship management skills and the ability to drive negotiation at high levels.

The role requires your significant experience of portfolio and project planning processes, techniques and methodologies in multi-disciplinary and commercial environments, as well as an in-depth understanding of strategic business objectives and complex organisational structures. MSP Practitioner/Advanced certifications and recognised Project Management qualifications (PRINCE2 or PMP) will be a great asset.

You will be leveraging your excellent people skills to create an environment in which our SAP Consultants enjoy their work and deliver great results, and use your experience to ensure that the business makes appropriate decisions in implementing change.

  • Ensuring that project governance is followed and accurate reporting and data is delivered to the stakeholders
  • Identification, procurement and management of the appropriate contracts and resources, including cross-functional, third-parties and divisional resources.
  • Implementation of a consistent programme / portfolio management methodology ensuring that the project teams conform to appropriate governance.
  • Implementation of structured development and performance management programmes for the team including objective setting, regular reviews, feedback and training.

What you'll need:
