Agile Project Manager - Nottinghamshire
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 Nottinghamshire
A county located in the East Midlands, Nottinghamshire shares borders with South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.
Those seeking Agile Project Manager roles in the region will have plenty of options to consider, particularly in the larger settlements like Mansfield, Newark-on-Trent and Worksop.
Nottingham, the traditional county town, is the biggest settlement in the area, with the largest population. It also usually ranks within the top 10 highest GDPs per capita in the country. However, the county council is based in West Bridgford.
For much of its past, the region thrived on agriculture and textiles. Nottinghamshire is probably best known for its famous fictional resident, Robin Hood. Indeed, the legend of the man who robbed from the rich to feed the poor is the major reason for the region's high rate of tourism. Meanwhile, the local economy also relies on the service sector and retail.
What's more, a number of large companies have headquarters or major facilities in the region. Boots the Chemist was founded in Nottingham in 1849 and its head office is still there. Others include E.ON UK, Gala Group, Siemens, Speedo, Games Workshop, Experian, Reuters and Capital One.
