IT Applications Project Manager

Are you an IT Applications Project Manager who wants to lead a new, business-critical programme of projects across our group companies in the UK? This role will be based out of our Ross-on-Wye head office, but involves hybrid working - whilst including a requirement to travel UK-wide (our travel policy is generous!)

Why on earth would you want to work for SafeLane Global?

At its heart, SafeLane Global is a company that saves lives every day – and you will be a critical part of the central support team that enables the company’s brilliant work. 

Does this sound like a mission you’d want to support?  Then come and join the SafeLane Family…where you’ll find that having a role within such an incredible company means you’ll never want to leave and work elsewhere.  Plus, you get great coffee, occasional cake, fish and chips and pizza!

Here’s an outline of the role we’d like you to apply for:

 

You will…

  • Lead a business-critical programme of application-related projects after a series of recent mergers and acquisitions.
  • Deliver all projects on time, within budget and in accordance with agreed scope (goes without saying really!)
  • Perform scoping tasks on our current systems and work with internal and external stakeholders to create an amazing integration plan.
  • Identify new business software solutions that could really revolutionise the way we work.
  • Keep project documentation up-to-date and keep your colleagues informed of your progress (a chance to show off)
  • Create scripts and manage issues during UAT (resisting the urge to say ‘have you read the manual’).
  • Work with users to identify how their existing applications can perhaps be leveraged better to increase productivity.
  • Maintain high-performing systems for all applications and ensure constant availability to business users (otherwise they’ll complain – sigh.)
  • Be THE point of escalation within the business for application related issues and work with 3rd party support providers to ensure any issues are resolved quick smart.
  • Manage 3rd party support providers effectively to ensure application availability and readiness is always maintained.
  • Lead on application updates through a test and production environment with required support from 3rd party providers and key business users as required.
  • Development and document all application related processes and procedures.

Key application experience; CRM and ERP.

Now, let’s talk about you…

You excel in a project management role and can’t wait to get your teeth into SafeLane’s CRM and ERP software solutions.

Your amazing skill set includes:

  • Having excellent communication (written and verbal) skills (and a GSOH)
  • You’re happy to work independently in a sometimes demanding environment
  • You have good time management and are able to prioritise even when someone is shouting that their IT issue is more important than the server being on fire
  • Ability to document procedures clearly and systematically so anyone can follow along
  • Ability to communicate effectively with members of staff at all levels (because sometimes the boss does break things)
  • Excellent customer service skills
  • Analytical and detail oriented

Your CV will show that you have the following experience:

  • Project managing application migration and integration projects
  • Providing training to users
  • Experience with data integration and backups

Ideally, it will also show:

  • Knowledge of database technologies (SQL, PostgreSQL, etc)
  • Experience supporting Salesforce, Access Dimensions and / or Sage 200 and with geotechnical software
  • Prince2 Practitioner / Foundation

This is a permanent, full-time role – 37.5hours per week – with hybrid working options.

We think the salary and benefits are very competitive – contact us to see if you agree.

Some of the benefits include: 25days of holiday and all bank holidays; continuous training and development; discretionary bonus scheme; medical cash back plan; death in service scheme; financial wellbeing scheme; family friendly and health and wellbeing policies; work-life-balance company culture; mental health first aiders and did we mention the fantastic coffee, occasional free food and wonderful colleagues?

We operate a hybrid working model – you will be in the office sometimes, you can be at home on occasion, and as mentioned – you will have the opportunity to travel extensively across the UK to meet all colleagues across multiple offices.

About your new employer – SafeLane Global!

SafeLane Global is trusted to create safer spaces for clients and communities across the world.  But what does that actually mean?  Well, on our international portfolio of projects we deal with the legacy left from explosive remnants of war.  This can mean clearing landmines, it can mean educating communities about the risks posed in their surrounds or it can mean training soldiers about the threats of improvised explosive devices.  Here in the UK we also deal with the explosive legacy of world wars – but we’re also on an exciting journey into site support for the pre-construction phase.  This might mean we make sure a piling rig won’t hit a WWII bomb … equally it might mean a wind farm can be built on stable ground conditions.
