You must be effective at driving governance, process and content delivery; getting close enough to the detail to ensure that projects consistently deliver successfully.

You should be used to working in a changing environment, be comfortable with ambiguity and have the ability to structure and shape the delivery of projects. You'd be expected to be autonomous, in your daily work, and be great at building project teams, influencing stakeholders and communicating effectively.

You must be experienced in working with cross functional teams of subject matter experts and 3rd parties to develop robust delivery approaches and plans, estimating costs and resources, building business cases, and working with the business sponsor to identify and driving benefits realisation.
