Agile Project Manager - Peterborough
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 Peterborough
Situated in the east of England, around 75 miles north of London, Peterborough is a cathedral city on the River Nene. As a centre of new business, the region has seen a significant amount of growth and it's a good choice for those seeking Agile Project Manager roles.
For much of Peterborough's history it led a quiet existence as a market town. When the abbey was re-classified as a cathedral in 1541, Peterborough became a city and started to expand.
The start of the Industrial Revolution, as well as the arrival of the railway, further boosted Peterborough's economy and by the mid-19th century, products like ironwork, bricks and elastic webbing were manufactured here.
A corn exchange was founded in 1860 and a beet sugar factory opened in 1926 - British Sugar maintains its headquarters in nearby Woodston, although production has moved to other locations.
In 1932, Perkins Engines was established to manufacture diesel engines and a variety of other industrial machinery companies also called the area home. Today, businesses in the manufacturing sector include Baker Perkins, Indesit and Peter Brotherhood.
The financial sector is also a thriving part of the local economy, with organisations like Norwich & Peterborough Building Society, BNP Paribas, Barclays Personal Investment Management, Diligenta, BGL and Churchill Insurance all having offices in Peterborough.
What's more, Peterborough is a hub for environmental industry and innovation, with companies like Natural England and the Environment Agency being based here.
