An experienced Project Manager is required for an initial 6 month contract which is likely to extend further, with a leading organisation based in Stratford. The successful Project Manager will be supporting a number of workstreams and dependencies including the migration of an internal financial software solution and the move to a new online payment services solution. As such, the Project Manager for this role will need to have experience of handling multiple threads of work at one time and will ideally have worked within the payments space.
The role of Project Manager is with an organisation who are currently going through a period of huge change and transformation with multiple workstreams ongoing so there is a high chance that this contract will extend well beyond the initial 6 months for the successful Project Manager to transition on to other projects.
