Programme Manager

London 80K - 90K Contract

Job Reference: PR1111_1572277714

Are you a Programme/Portfolio Manager with experience implementing large scale transformations covering people, process and tech? Our client is a major food retailer embarking on an ambitious major transformation to allow significant growth across multiple revenue streams.

A Programme Manager is required to manage the transformation of the food production and life cycle management ecosystems. This includes everything from food innovation and ingredient procurement, to labelling and sale. Currently, the technology underpinning the food operation is old, bespoke, and difficult to change, and the processes supporting each step are highly manual. This programme will address this by implementing new technology and global process simplification along agile principles, allowing value to be added iteratively rather than in one big bang that comes years in the future.

What you'll be doing:

  • Creating programme structure, governance, reporting, risk framework etc.
  • Agreeing methods of project prioritisation
  • Defining and creating the planning roadmap
  • Building and leading project teams across multiple functions
  • Managing 3rd party vendors, including vendor selection
  • Proactively approaching stakeholders and agreeing level of engagement early on
  • Leading engagement with core operation (shops and support teams)

What you'll need:

  • Experience selecting and managing 3rd part vendors
  • Experience implementing large scale transformations, covering both the technology aspect and the change management needed to land significant changes (i.e. people and process)
  • Strategic mindset
  • Experience of operational retail technology - food/supply chain/inventory/data preferred
  • Experience of Lean/Continuous Improvement approaches

What they're offering:

  • 33 days holiday per year including Bank Holidays
  • Private healthcare
  • Life assurance
  • Season ticket loan
  • Free lunch and drinks
  • 50% discount in shops worldwide

If you are interested in this opportunity and feel you have the necessary skills and experience, please submit your CV for immediate consideration.
