Agile Project Manager - Buckinghamshire

Agile Project Manager Jobs

Working closely with the scrum manager and reporting to a programme manager, the agile project manager is responsible for one or a number of workstreams in the change or transformation project. The agile project manager is tasked with overseeing the team they are assigned to and ensuring the project is meeting its milestones so its completion is on time and on budget.

The position will of course requires the manager to be fully signed up to the concept of agile project management as companies executing their projects in this way have an infrastructure in place to best serve the methodology. The agile project manager is first and foremost a people manager, because the team itself will have the degree of autonomy expected of agile. And while agility is a given in the team, it should be noted that it is also expected of its managers.

The skills required

Most companies looking for agile project managers require a firm background in dealing with the kinds of projects the company deals with, ideally in the same sector. General management or even traditional project management skill may not be enough to prepare someone for the specific demands of agile project management, so it’s worth doing some research on the business and its methods of seeing projects through to completion.

A person who has led agile projects at team leader level may be considered for some roles if the remaining set of skills is strong, for example leading within the sector or managing a team of similar structure. The interview stage will be the key to showing that you have the talent and knowledge to take on the role. Sometimes companies will be new to agile and will be going through the painful early stages; if you have the experience to pick up the ball and run with it, you’ll become a highly valued member of the team.

Agile Project Manager Jobs in Buckinghamshire

One of the London Home Counties, Buckinghamshire also shares a border with Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire. It's a popular choice for those seeking Agile Project Manager vacancies and offers a wealth of opportunities - for those who wish to live and work in the area, or commute to the capital.

During the industrial revolution, the region was known for its lace making and it's said that Queen Victoria used the delicate material for her pillows. After the arrival of the railway, furniture and paper production both took off in Buckinghamshire and heavy industry like the manufacture of train carriages was also big business.

Indeed, the 19th century was extremely lucrative for Buckinghamshire, and evidence of this can still be seen today in the many beautiful Victorian buildings that are spread across the county.

These days, Buckinghamshire's economy is mainly based in the service sector and studies have shown that it's one of the best places to live in the UK, with one of the highest life expectancies and some of the best school results in the country.

The region is still used for a lot of agricultural production, while furniture manufacture and pharmaceuticals are also major sources of employment.

What's more, the world-famous Pinewood Studios are located in Buckinghamshire. This studio has been the location of filming for a variety of big-name productions, including several James Bond films, the Superman franchise, Batman Returns and scenes from Peter Jackson's The Hobbit.
