Project Manager

We're looking for a project management superstar who will be responsible for planning, implementation and tracking of simultaneous e2e client projects on time, to agreed standard and budget.

We’re a fast-moving technology business undergoing rapid growth and are one of the leading providers of employee benefits solutions to employers. To help us on our quest to deliver and be the best we need the most brilliant people out there on board… and that’s where you come in.

What will you be doing?

  • You’ll be planning, implementing and managing the project. This means you’ll review the Client contract and with the support of the nominated Senior Consultant, you’ll define the scope of the Client project utilising the agreed methodology.
  • Create a detailed project plan which identifies and sequences the activities needed to successfully complete the project, working back from the Client enrolment date.
  • Determine the resources (time, support, interdependencies etc) required to complete the project.
  • Produce and deliver compelling, clear, succinct documents, proposals and presentations using multiple inputs and data sources.
  • Establish and manage the communication schedule to update the Client and internal stakeholders on project delivery against plan. Coordinate Client updates with Senior Consultant and rest of project team.
  • Deliver project presentations to Senior Client representatives and key stakeholders.
  • Develop trusted advisor relationships with senior level clients, including internal Executive teams across multiple clients.
  • Undertake a post implementation review to evaluate the outcomes of the project against agreed plans to identify improvement opportunities that benefit both the Client and Benefex business.

You’ll be predominately based at our snazzy offices in the centre of Southampton and when you’re not here you’ll be visiting our clients across the UK or doing a spot of work from home.

What skills and experience do you need to have?

  • You’ll need a minimum of 5 years’ experience of successfully managing multiple projects, preferably in a software or solutions delivery role.
  • We’re looking for a real completer finisher, who is an analytical and proactive thinker and someone who really takes ownership and accountability of their work.
  • You’ll be an avid user of project management reporting tools, such as projectmanager.com.
  • You’ll be the type of person who frequently challenges the ‘status quo’ as well as removing external and internal barriers by identifying effective solutions.
  • One last thing, it would be great if you have worked within the benefits industry before, however, this isn’t essential.

The salary for this role is dependent on experience. You’ll also get the below benefits as standard.

Rewards for you

  • Benefits including 25 days holiday (plus your birthday off!)
  • Healthcare, income protection, life assurance and access to our own award-winning online benefits scheme
  • Great team and office environment

Please let us have your details.

Start as you mean to go on, though: don’t just bore us with a bog standard CV and dreary cover letter which you’ve used 100 times before for every other vacancy out there. We like people who are creative and challenge the norm, so reflect that in how you apply to come and work for us.

A CV is useful, there’s no denying that, but make your application stand out from the crowd and do something different. We like different.
