But, we’re more than just a law firm – we’re a team, working together to help individuals and businesses navigate life’s ups and downs.

Whichever team you join, working here you’ll feel a part of our friendly and inclusive environment. We’ll value you for who you are and what you bring. We support each other and push boundaries to achieve incredible things, and make a real difference to our clients and communities.

* Identifying, assessing and managing risks to the success of the project

* Solving problems facing the project based on scope, resourcing, investment where the solution is not immediately apparent

* Taking a leading role in demonstrating compliance with the Change Framework and ensuring Quality reviews occur on schedule and according to procedure

* Managing the change control procedure, and ensures that project deliverables are completed within agreed cost, timescale and resource budgets, and are signed off

* Providing effective leadership to a diverse and large project team

* Building and maintaining excellent long term, mutually beneficial relationships with stakeholders and peers. Has strong communication skills to guide, influence and convince a diverse team and varied range of stakeholders.

* Creating the business readiness plan, taking into consideration IT deployment, data migration, capability deployment (training and engagement activities) and any business activities required to integrate new digital processes or jobs into the "business as usual" environment.

* Monitoring and maintaining all required financial records for compliance and audit to all agreed requirements.

* Managing financial planning and budgeting, and collating required financial data and reports for analysis and to facilitate decision making

* Managing individuals and teams, allocating resources and a broad range of project tasks as required. Provides coaching, direction, support and guidance as necessary, in line with individuals’ skills and abilities.

What We’re Looking For

* Experience of successfully managing the delivery of large-scale and complex projects.

* Experience of successfully engaging groups of diverse stakeholders from Board level down

* Working knowledge of Project Management tools and methodologies (e.g. Prince2 and agile project management)

* Working knowledge of agile methodologies and tools (Scrum, Kanban etc.)

* Ideally experience of delivering in a hybrid environment utilising cloud technologies, ideally Azure

* Ideally experience delivering projects in the legal sector

We're proud of our values, and we're looking for people who share them:

* To be pioneering with an imaginative outlook

* To be approachable and caring

* To be tenacious in the pursuit of our objectives

* To be efficient in the provision of our services

* To work with a foundation of integrity.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to receive your application
