Key Responsibilities will include but not limited to:

  • The role requires a confident, experienced, and self-starting individual who is comfortable working with a broad range of clients at all organisational levels.
  • Able to work with minimal supervision, the successful candidate will have the experience and confidence to be able to advise clients in relation to project planning and delivery approach and challenge/suggest improvements to internal Modality processes and practice.
  • Central to the role will be the contribution to/review of Statements of Work, project planning (inc the delivery of project plans which meet client needs) and on-going project tracking/reporting/issue management. The successful candidate will also need to be flexible in relation to business travel.
  • Strong client relationships are paramount, and the successful candidate will need to demonstrate a high level of maturity and commercial acumen. Communications and documentation must be authoritative, precise and credible and the successful candidate will be flexible and responsive to issues yet attuned to the agreed scope of work and Modality's interests.

Skills and experience required

  • Experience of UC products and implementations, especially MS Skype for Business/MS Lync (MS Teams desirable but not essential).
  • Experience in a challenging, deadline and deliverable-oriented environment.

  • Ability - confident, credible and authoritative demeanour - to ‘shape' a project and influence customers and stakeholders.
  • Experience of implementing change - technical and business - and understanding and executing/advising on best practice and governance/controls appropriate to the circumstances.
  • Excellent organisational skills.
  • Excellent written/verbal communication skills....a good ‘diplomat' and relationship builder.

  • Commercial acumen but balanced with strong customer focus and empathy.
  • Experience dealing with customers and business stakeholders, at all levels.
  • Ability to manage more than one project at a time.
