Job Description


  • About the Role

    The main purpose of the role is to take an approved project brief, which lays out a high-level business problem to be solved, and deliver the appropriate technical solution to the company. To do this, you will develop a product specification matching to the project brief, drive the evaluation of various off-the-shelf software solutions, and oversee the implementation and rollout phases, whether in-house or outsourced.

    You will work with focus on one, sometimes two, projects at a time over the period of several months - perhaps half a year on some projects. Once a given project has successfully been delivered and transitioned to support, you will move on to the next identified project.

    In the course of this work, you will be communicating with very senior members of the organisation (often c-suite, MDs, and VPs) across globally diverse locations. Your reporting lines will evolve as the department grows, but you will initially report to the global Director of IT Operations.

    What You Will Do

    • Collect requirements, understand the business needs, and document them in a functional specification for review and approval
    • Articulate what is possible and what is not - and negotiate and influence the stakeholders on the associated features
    • Present, discuss, and explain ideas coherently and logically both in writing and verbally. Your proposals will be reviewed with scrutiny by senior members of the organisation, who are time-poor and who will expect you to be able to be able to defend your ideas, but also be open to feedback - strong opinions, weakly held should be your mantra
    • Interface with technical leadership team (director of software, enterprise apps lead, software architect, etc.) to ensure the solution being proposed/delivered is technically fit for purpose and in line with Bridge architectural and technical standards
    • Document project requirements and define software requirement specifications
    • Own and manage project end-to-end from Project Brief through successful Project Closure
    • Coordinate and manage internal resources and third parties/vendors for the flawless execution of projects, including task allocation, motivation, and productivity
    • Perform periodic risk assessment and minimise risks through appropriate planning and escalation
    • Oversee change management and rollout strategy, in coordination with business stakeholders
    • Produce the appropriate documentation at various stages of the SDLC, including scoping, quality assurance/test cases, design specifications, and stakeholder engagement (milestones, status updates, risk assessments)
    • Perform overall day-to-day management of the project
