ERP Project Manager for software consultancy
Town: | County: Hampshire | Country: United Kingdom
Description: ERP SOFTWARE PROJECT MANAGER IN THE SOUTH OR WEST
To £55k + £5k car allowance
This is a very do-able project management role for a savvy ERP Project Manager who has worked for a software reseller, software consultancy or software vendor and is great at managing the clients and their expectations. The position is home or office based but you will need to spend two days a week in the office, so ideally you live within an hour or so commute to Basingstoke.
This PM position is with a successful software reseller; they have around 150 staff, a 20 year track record of project management, software implementation and support and the ERP solutions they sell cover supply chain, finance & accounting, distribution, asset management, business intelligence, production, inventory, warehousing, and CRM. They are looking for someone who is an established Software Project Manager working on multiple client sites, and familiar with ERP Software or something similar such as DMS or Automotive Software, Accounting Software, Legal Software, Construction Software, Property Management Software, Field Service Management Software etc.
You would be joining a team of 7 Project Managers and a couple of Project Coordinators and Project Administrators. There are typically 100 projects on the go at once consisting of some main new projects and big upgrades, and a selection of smaller projects. You need to be able to scope the projects, build and manage the ERP project plans, run the budgets, and lead your team of consultants ensuring they give you full support with what needs doing, that they adhere to the project time scales.
The challenge is to manage the clients, the resources and the ERP Consultants. You will be aware of the usual problems:
* Clients want everything for nothing
* Consultants want easy projects closer to home
* Projects only ever get longer
* Budgets only ever get smaller
Part of your responsibility is being the ambassador for the software, so doing some account management, taking orders from clients and talking to them about different modules and software functionality are all part of the role. You also need to be able to complete project risk analysis and the key project milestones.
Strong ERP Project Management experience of at least 3 years is essential, working for a software reseller, vendor or consultancy in a client facing position. Being able to fight your corner, have the awkward conversations with the clients and manage people and projects in a way that you can get the best out of them and keep working with them (year after year), is essential. They are looking for someone who is driven and likes a challenge.
