  • Run project workshops / discovery sessions, regular project updates and other meetings;
  • Ensure that all requirements, timescales, milestones and deliverables are documented and communicated internally and to the client in a timely manner;
  • Communicate project process, issues, risks and opportunities across the various stakeholders, both client-side and internally within the company's wider group;
  • Ensure that the appropriate resources (business analysts, developers, data migration specialists, training resource, platform consultants) are briefed and organised to deliver their part in the overall project;
  • Report on progress across multiple projects to the company's senior management team;
  • Provide relationship management and ongoing support to on-boarded firms for a period of between 3-12 months post go-live.

Required Skills/Experience:

  • Sound knowledge of Financial Services, specifically the IFA and wrap/platform market;
  • 3-5 years' experience in project management
  • High level of verbal and written communication skills
  • Strong ability to work independently and part of a team
  • Excellent presentation and interpersonal skills
  • Effective organisational skills
  • Understanding of the project life-cycle and the disciplines associated with running multiple, complex projects
