Senior Digital Project Manager
Leadership and Mindset: At Delete we place a focus on developing leadership and ownership at all levels of the organisation; as a role responsible for the delivery of work and management of teams, our project managers (PM) foster the optimum conditions where people can thrive and produce the best possible work, delivering value for clients and value for the agency.
Working in harmony with teams from different locations and disciplines, the Senior PM ensures clarity on the division of responsibilities. Through a positive, knowledgeable and inspirational attitude, it is the Senior PM’s responsibility to set the tone and mood of the team and to manage the structure and day to day running of their projects, as well as the smooth handover to our operational support teams.
As a senior member of the project management team, the Senior PM is expected to deliver projects of high complexity, across multiple workstreams and for our largest clients.
Their mindset is to go above and beyond expectations and consistently lead by example - Not restricted by the confines of their job description, they contribute to the smooth running of the agency and are committed to playing a key role in building a successful future for our business.
Core Functions: Accountable for the delivery of successful projects, on time and on budget, the Senior PM manages cross-functional teams of creative and technical professionals, on everything from minor change requests, to multi-year design, development and continuous improvement programmes.
The Senior PM is an evangelist for the agency’s global PMO processes and functions. Furthermore, they seek to maximise project profit by effectively managing risk, controlling scope and introducing economies of repetition in the execution of projects and services.
The Senior PM actively represents the project team. They define, agree and manage the project approach with stakeholders, and subsequently prepare achievable project plans (including quality, risk and communications plans). They diligently track activities against the project plan, managing stakeholder involvement along the way. As the person responsible for team billability, they demonstrate a strong commercial awareness at all times and act as a gatekeeper for the resources assigned to the project.
In addition, the Senior PM is expected to organise and coordinate ScrumMasters and other PMs, directing a programme of work and ensuring governance is followed according to established Delete PMO policies.
