We're currently seeking a passionate and experienced Project Manager to join our Professional Services team.

As a Project Manager, you will play a crucial role in overseeing a variety of implementation projects supporting our SCE clients. Your expertise will guide the initiation, planning, and delivery phases, ensuring efficient resource allocation and project governance. Your responsibilities will include:

  • Leading kick-off and project planning workshops.
  • Managing project scopes, risks, and deliverables.
  • Supporting user acceptance testing and overseeing the go-live support phase.
  • Maintaining close collaboration with clients and internal teams to ensure seamless project execution and client satisfaction.

Qualifications & Experience:

  • Proven experience in client facing project management, preferably within public sector industry
  • Excellent communication skills, capable of presenting complex information clearly and persuasively.
  • Strong analytical and organisational skills, with the ability to manage multiple tasks simultaneously.
  • An excellent understanding of project documentation and administration.
  • The ability to mentor and help other members of the team.
  • A proactive attitude towards problem-solving and a strong team player mindset.

This position offers the flexibility of remote work, allowing you to work from home. However, it's important to note that there will be periodic travel required for team meetings. These meetings will typically take place either at our offices in Leeds or Oxford. Additionally, occasional travel to client sites across the country may be necessary. On average, this travel requirement may amount to approximately 30-40% of your time.

At System C, we prioritise transparency in our job requirements and selection criteria, ensuring they are based solely on the essentials needed for effective job performance. We consciously avoid assumptions that could skew our perception of a candidate’s suitability for hire.

Our recruitment practices are designed to ensure that no applicant is unfairly disadvantaged by procedures or requirements that disproportionately affect protected groups without being essential for the job.

For every position, we develop a detailed job description and person specification. This approach maintains our focus on the true demands of the role and the skills, experience, and qualifications necessary. During interviews, we involve multiple interviewers where possible to further mitigate unintentional bias, thereby promoting a fair and equitable hiring process.
