Project Manager-Based in Milton Keynes

Role Profile

  • The PM will be responsible for initiatives that drive revenue growth in the business. An example of an initiative is launching a new membership package for a new customer
  • Factfinding and collecting input from key stakeholders ('who are these new customers and what do they need?')
  • Defining the new proposition ('what value can we provide them? What should we charge them?')
  • Getting buy-in from stakeholders on the design, as well as other teams responsible for the delivery
  • Organising and leading a cross-functional team across, such as sales, marketing, product development, etc. to deliver the new proposition ('who needs to do what by when to achieve the outcome we want?')
  • Reviewing the performance of this proposition ('did we manage to sell this to the target new customers?')
  • Continuously improving on the proposition over time ('how can we make it better? Can we generate more revenue from it?')
  • The PM will need to have experience in a commercial environment, as they will need to make frequent revenue decisions. Understanding the revenue impact of those decisions will be key.
  • Strong interpersonal skills are also required, as our culture is rather non-hierarchical. The PM will need to get buy-in from various people in the business to be successful in their initiatives (e.g., if sales team is not bought into the new proposition, they won't be able to sell it)
  • Comfort in working with data is also strongly preferred. While we do have analysts on the team, as a pricing team we work frequently with data, and that means the PM will need to be comfortable with navigating large data sets and be numerate. Candidates with a previous analytical background or numerical degree would have a strong advantage.
  • I'm looking for someone with project management certification, though I'm also happy with extensive experience if he/she checks all the other boxes.

Skills & Experience

  • Minimum 4 years Project Management experience, ideally in a commercial function
  • Comfortable managing and prioritising multiple projects
  • Superior organisational skills, including attention to detail and ability to work independently
  • Ability to think big and small/long and short term
  • Experience with understanding complex data, Excel skills preferred
  • Sense of ownership and responsibility for the work you and the team deliver
  • Passionate and determined

Client information

  • Our customer is a hugely successful online business that has created a massive subscription business over the last 20 years.
