Senior Project Manager

Tangent is looking for a Senior Project Manager to join their office in London.

Employer: Tangent

Location: London / UK

Position: Senior Project Manager


At Tangent, we help businesses realise their potential by reimagining customer experiences. Our PM team make this happen by managing projects and resources that deliver innovative digital experiences to our clients. Sound like fun? Great.

We’re proudly independent owned, with teams in London’s Fitzrovia (50 people) and Newcastle city centre. (30 people). This role is based in our London office. We’re looking for a Senior Project Manager to join our close knit PM team. This is a hands on role where you will be working closely with the clients for renowned brands.

What you will be doing:

We’re an active, fast paced company working with large enterprises and startups. There are always new opportunities and challenges to keep you on your toes. Here’s a taster as to the types of projects you will be working on.

Digital transformation. We like a big meaty challenge and nothing is more rewarding than taking a legacy system and reinventing it for the 21st century. You will be delivering complex digital products, liaising with senior stakeholders and a multi-disciplinary team.

Branding. We love working with start-ups / scale-ups – but more often than not they need a brand refresh. We need you to be able to manage projects that elevate our clients above the competition.

Innovation. Nothing gets us more excited than when a new piece of tech can benefit our clients. Expect to find yourself working as part of a cross disciplinary innovation sprint team. Think tight deadlines, working directly with the client to prototype and test new ideas at speed.

Pitching. We live for the adrenaline rush of a pitch. You’ll lead the delivery of pitches, working with the team to agree the delivery approach and ensure our presentations leave a lasting impression.

But this role isn’t just about project management! People are a critical part of our business too. We need you to be comfortable mentoring juniors, speaking regularly to clients, presenting, and working with teams of UX, UI and developers. We want you to be an advocate for what great project management is within the agency. Sound like you?

What we’re looking for:

We need a confident project manager who has been working at a senior PM level for at least 4 years and within an agency environment. Someone who is currently responsible for managing the delivery of digital projects and who is able to work across a number of different accounts. You will need to feel confident writing proposals, scoping projects, planning and budgeting.

When we meet you, we want to hear how you went about delivering your best work. What inspired you, what went wrong, how it was received and most importantly what you learnt.

There are a few “must haves” for this role:

• Ability to manage projects with £250k+ budgets without support
• Ability to run stakeholder workshops, plan project roadmaps, define the project approach and produce detailed SOWs and budgets
• Strong communication skills, building and managing client relationships on a day to day basis, running meetings, writing agendas and minutes
• Strong experience of risk and issue management and status reporting
• Strong experience in Waterfall and Agile methodologies
• Experience managing 3rd Party partners (UK and offshore)
• Experience with JIRA, Confluence and MS Project
• Certification in SCRUM (desirable but not essential)

What we give in return:

People are our biggest asset and we work hard to make sure Tangent is not only a fun place to work but also provides a platform for you to grow.

Mentorship. You will be working as part of a talented and experienced project management team. Our passion and desire to do great work is infectious.

Training. Learning new skills, attending events. We provide the time and budget to help you grow.

Flexibility. We understand life is about balance and we provide flexibility and support to help you achieve your life goals.

Social life. Free breakfasts, run club in Regents Park, Friday lunches and monthly social events. We have so much going on at Tangent all designed to help you form friendships with your colleagues.

Salary & benefits. We reward our people generously for their hard work plus we have additional benefits to those we already told you about, including 25 days plus bank holidays, flexible start and finish times and the ability to work from home from time to time.

So that’s it, if the above sounds like you then we would love to hear from you!
