​Altum Consulting are currently partnered with a global Consumer business in the search for an Interim PMO Lead. This is an opportunity for an experienced delivery professional to establish and manage a PMO in support of a major global ERP transformation programme.

This is a remote based opportunity for a period of 12/18months and the contract is Outside IR35.

Accountable too and working closely with the Global Programme Director you will act as a central point of the programme to ensure its delivery against agreed deliverables, timelines, quality and cost. In order to achieve this, you will need to bring industry standard best practice methods. The organisation has a sperate centralised PMO function, but this role will provide standalone support directly to the ERP programme. Specifically, you will:

  • Develop and uphold delivery governance, controls, tools and standards

  • Develop and maintain/optimise detailed project schedules, undertaking critical path analysis and analysis of change

  • Track progress against an integrated programme plan and manage programme status reports

  • Ensure benefits realisation and key Programme KPI’s are demonstrable and tracked.

  • Document and manage change control elements

  • Provide project planning for the programmes pilot implementations

  • Support the scheduling of any required workshops or meetings to support.

  • Manage RAID log to record, mitigate and communicate RAID progress & updates.

  • Constructively challenge, whilst maintaining strong relationships across the business and within delivery teams.

Given the complexity of the organisation and the need to hit the ground running on the programme we are looking for someone that meets the following criteria:

  • Established and managed a PMO to support an ERP transformation programme on multiple occasions (Industry agnostic).

  • Experienced and confident working with stakeholders at board level.

Applications are reviewed continuously. Please do not hesitate in applying for this opportunity.
