Our client is the UK’s leading management consultancy in the world of digitally enabled procurement and supply chain transformation. Due to continued success wining major transformation projects enabled by Coupa solutions they are seeking to hire an experienced Project Manager with strong knowledge of Coupa into this vital senior management role.
As a Project Manager you will guide customers through the lifecycle of a software implementation. You support the blueprinting process, gather customer requirements and lead the design workshops leveraging best practices.
You may also assist in the development of processes and procedures, which will leverage the solutions in the customer organization. You may also lead the final configuration of the solution and provide the customer with guidance on user acceptance testing and support in resolving issues/defects.
You currently have excellent knowledge of at least one S2P solution and associated best practices. You leverage this knowledge to ensure that a high quality solution will be deployed that will bring value to the customer business, will be easy to use and easy to maintain. You know that you can only achieve this if you collaborate closely with the customer team and build constructive and positive relationships with all key stakeholders.
Strong candidates will be able to offer the following skills and personal qualities:
You enjoy working in a challenging environment where you are encouraged to take initiative. You demonstrate high energy and motivation. You have an internal drive to deliver high quality outcomes.
You are comfortable working in an international environment where you have to collaborate with people remotely.
You have strong analytical and problem solving capabilities.
You have strong interpersonal skills; you have experience in Project Management methodologies.
You have an affinity with IT and ideally experience deploying IT solutions or acting as a super user for IT solutions. You understand the work of IT consultants and you understand the challenges and complexities that come with digitalizing business processes.
You are passionate but you maintain a rational and objective demeanour when faced with stressful or emotional situations. You express yourself clearly, using language with precision. You show an openness to people and a willingness to hear what others have to say. You have the ability to perceive and understand the feelings and attitudes of others, the ability to place oneself “in the shoes” of another and to view a situation from their perspective.
You understand that initially, you will have to absorb a great deal of new information, gain initial experience. However, once you will have overcome that hurdle you will enjoy feeling empowered to leverage your own experience and make a difference.
Most importantly, you are not perfect and maybe you do not master all these expectations but you believe in their value and want to work hard to master them.
