Agile Project Manager - Gillingham

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 Gillingham

Gillingham is a town in Kent where the River Medway spills out into the Thames Estuary. It was historically the site of a barracks and port, but today is home to a popular marina for yachts and small boats. The Royal Navy had a base there until the mid-1980s, when it closed down. The inevitable unemployment caused by the decline of its seafaring links was reversed somewhat by the construction of a business park, which created many jobs and was a success thanks to its already good road and rail links and proximity to London. The town serves much of the surrounding area as a centre of retail.

Gillingham Business Park is a thriving and productive area of the town, and employs many locals. In fact the park is so busy that Premier Inn has a branch there to assist face-to-face business in this region in the South East corner of the UK. With a population of around 100,000 inhabitants and a successful business park and retail sector, Gillingham can be an ideal place to look for a Agile Project Manager position if you are living in the area.
