Agile Project Manager - Newcastle upon Tyne
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 Newcastle upon Tyne
Newcastle upon Tyne has long been an important location in Britain. During Roman times, a fort called Pons Aelius was erected and served as the eastern end of Hadrian's Wall, while the Duke of Normandy built a castle here in 1080.
In the Middle Ages, Newcastle was a fortress on the northern border during the wars against Scotland. By the 16th century, the area had become known for its coal production. The city enjoyed a monopoly on shipping the fuel and thus created a rivalry with other nearby towns like Tyneside and Sunderland.
Printing, glassworks and shipbuilding were a big part of the city's economy as the Industrial Revolution took hold. Then, 19th century innovations such as safety lamps, improved milling techniques, electricity generation and light bulbs paved the way for the city's prosperity.
Of course, you can't forget one of Newcastle's most beloved products: Newcastle Brown Ale. Also known as Newkie Broon, this drink first went into production in 1928 and has been a favourite beverage ever since. Production, however, has been moved to North Yorkshire.
Today, the Tyneside conurbation is among the 10 most populous in the UK, making it a good choice for those seeking new Agile Project Manager vacancies.
Heavy industry has declined over the last 50 years, to be replaced mainly with retail and the service sector. Just some of the many companies that are headquartered or have regional offices in the city include Greggs the baker, the Go-Ahead Group, Northern Rock, Proctor & Gamble UK and Sage, an enterprise software company.
