Agile Project Manager - Rhondda

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 Rhondda

Rhondda is often known as the Rhondda Valley, and is a collection of mining villages that played a major part in South Wales’s economic prosperity in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The coal in the valley was plentiful but difficult to reach, so it required massive investment if it was to become economically viable, and remained largely untapped until the mid-1800s, when just such an effort was undertaken.

Rhondda is located 15 miles (25 km) north west of Cardiff and 20 miles (32 km) east of Swansea, from which ports the coal could readily be shipped around the nation and the world to fuel the Industrial Revolution. This led to a huge growth in population in the area, which went from less than a thousand in the 1851 census to 17,000 twenty years later and 160,000 by 1921. However the decline in coal mining thereafter also led to a decline in population, which now stands at around 60,000.

Commercially, the modern Rhondda Valley is dominated by smaller businesses and local retail areas, with moderate amounts of manufacturing going on. The picturesque appearance of the mountains and hills makes it a desirable place to live for workers from Swansea, Newport and Cardiff who prefer to retreat away from the frenetic pace of the city. The topography of the area means it’s less than ideal for locating logistics or supply chain operations. The valley is served by A road and B roads, with the M4 passing the Welsh coast’s cities the only motorway for miles around. If you’re looking for Agile Project Manager jobs in Rhondda, it might be worth searching in these cities, although it’s not unknown for such positions to become available.
