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.
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.
As more companies adopt agile project management into their philosophies, and the concept becomes more entrenched in the project management environment, the need for good agile project managers will only grow. We have the contacts and a list of brilliant clients to help you, the agile project manager, find those companies that most accurately reflect your skill profile.

A postal county that was established in 1974, and then abolished in 1996, South Humberside was located in northern England. It became two unitary authorities: North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire.
Some of the towns that were once part of South Humberside included Brigg, Cleethorpes, Grimsby and Scunthorpe. While the county may be gone in name, these locations are still excellent places for those seeking Agile Project Manager roles.
Fishing and shipping have long been important parts of the region's economy. During the 19th century, Grimsby's port imported a variety of products including iron, wheat, hemp, flax and timber.
When the railway arrived here in the late 1840s, it provided a direct link from South Humberside to London, making it easy to get fresh fish and other produce to the capital quickly.
Currently, the Port of Grimsby is the UK's largest in terms of tonnage - its success is due to a combination of factors, including its deep-water location, ease of access to the rest of the country and a relatively equal distance (about 200 miles) from London, Edinburgh and Rotterdam.
Food processing is the region's major industry today, while renewable energy, chemicals and tech are also important.
Just some of the companies that can be found in the region include Centrica, Siemens, Young's Seafood, Findus, Tata Steel, Corus and Ericsson.
