Project Manager (Infrastructure)

IT Onchan, Isle of Man

Position at The Stars Group

The role:

We are looking for a Project Manager (Infrastructure) to join our busy and dynamic team based in our Isle of Man office.

Why we need you:

The Infrastructure team provides essential structure, security, and strength to the whole of the business. We solve problems, fix hardware & software, and obsess about delivering innovative tech solutions for the platform that runs our core systems.

Whether it’s heading up incidents, investigations and changes, we make tech decisions to keep everything working smoothly, 24/7. And, we make sure we keep all our colleagues up and running all day too. Over 1500 of them. Join our team and you’ll do the same.

We are currently looking for a creative and pragmatic Delivery Manager with a ‘can-do’ attitude to join our experienced team in the Isle of Man. You`ll take responsibility for the effective ownership of end-to-end business initiatives within our delivery programme.

If you have experience working with both technical and non-technical teams, possess proactivity, great attention to detail and ability to plan and multi-task effectively, you`ll be a perfect fit for the role. On this position, you`ll have the exciting opportunity to visit a few of our other service office locations.

Note: This role is internally known as Delivery Manager (Infrastructure).

Who are we looking for:

As a Project Manager within the Infrastructure team, you will be responsible for leading the end-to-end delivery of products and initiatives throughout the project lifecycle, from ‘Inception’ to ‘Benefit Realisation’. You will take the lead on defining, scoping and planning key deliverables, working closely with internal and external stakeholders of varying disciplines.

On a daily basis, you will lead cross-team and business-wide communication, coordinating them to ensure that dependencies are understood and necessary tasks progressed accordingly. You`ll work closely with a variety of technical roles such as Architects, Engineers, and Developers. Implementation of suitable governance is important, and you will ensure it is applied and controlled throughout. You will actively monitor, identify and remove blockers preventing projects from advancing. In a fast-paced environment that requires the management of multiple deliverables at a time, you will deliver within agreed business timescales without compromising on quality or customer value.

It will be your role to accurately report to multiple stakeholders, ensuring expectations are aligned, whilst also working alongside the relative support functions to confirm internal policies and external compliance matters are adhered to.

As the ideal candidate, you will have:-

You have a solid understanding and experience in the use of Project Management principals and methodologies such as Agile, Waterfall and Lean. Specifically, you have a solid track record of delivering better customer experiences, whilst delivering major product improvements and supporting significant business growth.

Preferably, you have experience of working with Infrastructure, Enterprise and Security teams, and a desire/interest in developing yourself further within these business functions. You must have exceptional communication skills, as cross team and department alignment is critical to delivery success and you will be at the forefront of making this happen. You will apply strong leadership, ensuring that you are seen as a role model and able to influence teams with your knowledge and experience of delivery and Agile ways of working. You will be outcome focused with the ability to determine what adds value and what does not. Approach-ability, open mindedness and an ability to work well with people at all levels of the business is a must, and is at the heart of how we work.

The role will require you to continuously use initiative, inquisitiveness and never being satisfied with the status-quo - always challenging the team and supporting them to be more efficient and advance their skills.

What’s in it for you?

The salary for this job is based on experience, so whilst we are not able to go into detail at this stage, we can say that we offer great salary packages and a discretionary annual performance bonus. In addition, we can provide advice and dedicated assistance to those moving to the Isle of Man.

We offer health and dental insurance for you, your partner and your children (if you all live at the same address). In addition, you can join our company pension scheme. You can make the most of our personal interest allowance in order to learn something new or pursue a hobby. If you have a baby whilst you work for us, we will give you 1000 GBP as congratulations.

Our in-house training and development team deliver fantastic support to develop your skills and support you in progressing your career.

In addition, there is free fresh fruit, snacks and drinks.

Our social team organise great events; including our sensational summer and Christmas parties.

What happens next?

We will aim to get back to you as soon as possible. If you meet the criteria, then we’ll invite you to a phone interview and if that goes well we’ll meet you for a face-to-face interview.
