Head of PMO

Head of PMO with a background in either technology, manufacturing or engineering is sought after by one of the fast-growing organisations in Suffolk. The organisation was recently included in the FT1000 list and have become a household name in the EV sector providing global organisations and households with its pioneering technology. The business is now building new hardware and applications to keep its name at the forefront of the green space whilst growing its presence around the world. Over the past 6 months, the company has doubled in size and has no plans on slowing down in the new year with plans to double again.
 
The company is seeking a Head of PMO with experience working in a large-scale environment. Someone able to not only effectively manage multiple projects from scope to deployment but also recognise opportunities to scale the function. This is a highly visible role within the organisation, you will work closely with the senior management team to establish a PMO function ensuring appropriate governance, planning, processes, and procedures are in place to enable the successful delivery of the company’s product. You will grow and lead a team of Project Managers to work in cross-functional departments such as manufacturing and technology whilst overseeing all the company’s business systems and new ERP systems. The organisation is still relatively young, though financially stable with an established brand in the EV space, however, the opportunity to have a genuine influence on how the company scales the PMO function is real. Leaning on your previous experience of running multiple projects within bespoke Tech, IoT or Energy environments you will bring focus to projects bringing them in on time and budget while also managing change requests and seeking opportunities to gain further work that can be passed to the sales team as appropriate.
 
The ability to manage multiple projects and resources in unison, along with an understanding of managing technical resources and managing your own time is vital to this opportunity. We are looking for someone that either has experience building and shaping a PMO function within a scaleup environment or someone that is fed up with large scale organisations and wants to cut their teeth in a scaling business. We are happy to consider people from Tech, IoT, Manufacturing and Engineering backgrounds with strong Prince2 and Agile experience. A competitive salary is on offer, up to £90k depending on experience, remote working with travel into the Suffolk site when required and the opportunity to work with a truly welcoming team.
