Job Description

About the role

The lifecycle of a project runs all the way from opportunity and solutioning, through to contract delivery, then eventual closure, and operational support. As a Delivery Manager, you are accountable for the delivery of the project against the contract.

You support, monitor and report throughout the phases - sales, estimating, planning, mobilising and executing, right up to closure, ensuring regular communication with stakeholders and clients and monitoring financial performance.

Day to day, you will:

  • Balance scope, schedule, budget, quality and risks
  • Develop, implement and maintain a detailed project schedule to ensure production of on-time, on-budget, quality outputs
  • Report on status and progress of all aspects of the project against the contract.
  • Assist client teams to implement change enablement processes
  • Cultivate strong client relationships
  • Manage staff - both onshore and offshore - as well as sub-contractor staff when required
  • Travel as needed.

About You

You balance a strategic outlook with a practical focus on day-to-day activities and changing needs, and your business knowledge matches your excellent teamwork, planning and communication skills.

You are driven to achieve outcomes - both for your client and for your employer. You enjoy working with structure, although with a level of autonomy, and you think and work systematically and logically - with an attention to the daily detail. You are at home with enterprise technology and your business acumen means you understand what's involved in bringing a client initiative to successful conclusion.

You probably have a Bachelor degree in Business or IT and a Project Management certification. You are likely to have some years of experience in the consulting industry.

You've got great spoken and written communication skills, and your client-focussed attitude means you're comfortable presenting to clients.

  • Managing project delivery against a contract
  • Managing client stakeholder expectations
  • Managing projects using an Agile delivery approach
  • Managing requirements and team work using Azure DevOps (or JIRA)
  • Managing project schedule using Microsoft Project

  • Managing engagements in highly regulated client environments - eg Federal Govt
