Schedule (FT/PT): Full Time
Travel Required: No

Potential for Telework: Yes, 100%

Job Description:

The Engineering Project Manager (EPM) role is used in engineering disciplines when the scope of engineering programme work is large and complex, as is the case with the MPS Programme. The Engineering PM will support the Chief Engineer by managing the technical staff, ensure policy and process is defined and followed and ensure that the engineering team has the tools needed to deliver. With a focus on the operational aspects of engineering, the EPM has oversight and responsibility for the technical principles, theories, and concepts, and standards in support of engineering delivery.

EPM role is about executing the daily cost/schedule management and working priorities. If the Technical Workstream PM or Chief Engineer says something needs to be done then the EPM determines who has the skills and time within current workload to execute. The EPM will also track progress daily, which means pushing teams to enter time into Jira against tasks and tracking velocity. This requires an individual with an Agile lean. This will leave the Technical Workstream PM free to deal with the customer and strategic objectives.

Core skills and behaviours

  • Drives the team towards delivery by shaping and encouraging the team to achieve outcomes.
  • Significant experience in delivery of complex and parallel technical deliverables for large government organisations or private corporations using a diverse engineering and technology team.

  • Experience of large scale integrations, micro service architecture and key technologies.
  • Keen technical advocate and self-learner up to date with the latest technology and innovations; encourages and inspires those around them.
  • Line management is not core to this role, however, Engineering Leads have the ability to grow and manage those on the path to technical leadership roles.
