Here at VWV, our management team are aiming to deliver projects to target improving our efficiency, and therefore our profit margins. Involvement in projects may simply include advice or support but will also include managing delivery of the full project lifecycle.
As the Project Manager you will work with key stakeholders, including management, lawyers and even clients, to define the scope of projects and to identify the most appropriate project delivery approach based on business needs, project risk, impact and cost. Strategic support and operational project management support on projects/matters are key elements of the role.
You will play a key part in the planning, coordination, reporting and management of projects across the firm. We require an individual with a balanced knowledge of IT and familiarity with managing information security such as developing policies and procedures, defining responsibilities and change management.
The ideal candidate will have demonstrable project management capabilities preferably gained in a professional services environment. Previous experience of working in a legal environment is not essential but would be beneficial. They will be someone who is able to work with limited supervision to effectively manage project delivery.
The successful candidate will have the ability to understand and assess business and change management needs at project level and will have experience of delivering complex projects working across multiple business functions, teams and locations.
