LET'S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS We think about PMO a little differently, and if you do too then we want to hear from you. Our next generation PMO teams think and act strategically, using data-driven insights to provide the backbone for large programmes and portfolios of work. We use design-thinking to develop meaningful reports, rapid prototyping and agile development to automate the heavy lifting of the day-to-day running of a PMO, and collaborate with our offshore PMO support teams to streamline administrative tasks, ensuring we can maintain focus on guiding delivery. You will learn to use our bespoke suite of programme/portfolio visualisation tools and utilise our partnerships with local Fintech startups to supercharge our clients' PMO activities.
Sure, you'll still need to have a good grasp of the basics of PMO, including reporting, RAID management, resource tracking, financial management, policies and methodologies, and an understanding of how to optimise processes to improve operational efficiency. Unsurprisingly, excellent stakeholder management skills are essential. Your roles will have a global focus and will require collaboration with Business, Operations, Finance, Compliance, IT and other functions.
Fitting that description, you will also need to be supremely personally motivated to work in a team where clients become colleagues too. We are looking for PMO Analysts and Managers with change experience in the Financial Services industry.
SHOW US WHAT YOU'VE GOT We're looking for the following skills and experience:
Relentless focus on improvement and automation of PMO functions. Ideally able to hack efficient PMO delivery with VBA / SharePoint Designer / MS Access, but at the very least comfortable defining clear requirements for PMO automation systems.

Strong stakeholder management skills, comfortable working with and influencing diverse stakeholders at senior levels across multiple business functions.
