Agile Project Manager - Tamworth

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 Tamworth

The town of Tamworth is the largest town in Staffordshire, although the largest settlement is the city of Stoke-on-Trent. Due to its south-eastern location, however, the town probably has more of an affiliation with Birmingham; Tamworth is just 12 miles (20 km) from the centre of Birmingham, and 6 miles (10 km) from Sutton Coldfield. The M42 passes to the east, connecting Birmingham with the M1, and to the west the M6 toll road heads north and south.

The town has a rich history, and was once larger than Birmingham; indeed it was even the capital of Mercia under Kind Offa in the 9th century. It was raided and destroyed by the Danes and re-founded by Aethelflaed, daughter of Alfred the Great. There was probably a Saxon fort in the town, but it is thought that Tamworth Castle was built on its grounds; the castle still stands to this day. During the 18th and 19th centuries, the town became industrialised, mainly thanks to the abundant coal nearby. Canals and railways came, and engineering, brick and tile making and the textile industries grew up. In latter years, Tamworth was the home of the Reliant factory, famous for its Robin and Scimitar cars; the factory no longer exists, however.

Tamworth, with its links to both Birmingham and Staffordshire, and thanks to its ideal location in the midlands, is a perfect place to find Agile Project Manager positions, and they become available reasonably frequently here and in its surrounding area. It is certainly worth taking a look or contacting Cast UK directly to talk about your needs.
