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.
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.
As more companies adopt agile project management into their philosophies, and the concept becomes more entrenched in the project management environment, the need for good agile project managers will only grow. We have the contacts and a list of brilliant clients to help you, the agile project manager, find those companies that most accurately reflect your skill profile.

The market town of Fareham lies towards the south of Hampshire, with Gosport to its south, Portsmouth to the south east and Southampton 10 miles (15 km) to the west. The south east of the town touches Fareham Lake, which forms the port of Portsmouth and Gosport, but at this point it is only navigable by small craft, and the marina has plenty of them on show.
As well as having historic links to the maritime centres to its south and west, Fareham carved out a reputation as a master of the clay-based industries, making bricks, tiles and chimney pots with their distinctive red hue. Although they are used all over the country, the most famous building made of Fareham red brick is the Royal Albert Hall in London.
Fareham is seen as a slightly more upmarket place to live than the port towns and cities nearby. It is well connected by road, rail and sea, and has lots of green space and the beautiful Hampshire countryside to the north. It has also become quite a notable centre for light industry and retail, with several retail areas and a technology park in the town. There could well be opportunities for Agile Project Manager jobs in Fareham, and certainly in the seafaring locations within a few miles along the coast. This has always been a region of industry, and it looks set to continue with further investment and development.
