The successful PM will be responsible for project delivery utilising PM best practise (Agile and Waterfall) learnt throughout your successful career to date, combined with the in house Solutions Delivery Framework methodology for the full lifecycle of the project from inception to closure and review.

You will need to:
* Support the strategic GCTO 2020 Transformation Programme to enable Service Lines to transition delivery of their capability from product to service based consumption.

*Manage the SCO Service Delivery Project "agile" JIRA backlog to drive technical design, build and testing milestones
*Deliver engineered solutions to Service Capability Transformation Project who will lead collaboration with the Service & Capability owners to successfully validate functionality
