Join us as a Portfolio Manager

  • We'll look to you to drive the portfolio and champion Agile and DevOps principles, allowing sufficient flexibility for the portfolio to evolve as customer value is proven and the needs evolve
  • You'll be managing a rolling investment portfolio to realise the strategic objectives of the enterprise or domain by providing investment planning, the transformation portfolio and design services
  • This is a great opportunity to take on a role in an innovative, forward thinking environment where you'll be able to have a tangible effect on the function

What you'll do

As a Portfolio Manager, you'll be proactively and strategically driving, defining and developing a portfolio structure to provide appropriate governance, control and management of the enterprise-wide portfolio, domain portfolio or platform portfolio, including any associated interdependencies.

  • Partnering with a range of stakeholders to ensure an accurate, rolling pipeline view of investment
  • Using a constant feedback of velocity rather than a fixed plan, understanding the value that is being generated is maintained, used and kept under regular review and proactively identifying and actioning accelerators and efficiencies
  • Defining, creating and managing a rolling wave strategic themed investment plan, aligned with the expected future business value outcomes
  • Making informed decisions around resourcing of the portfolios, including any necessary scaling up or down and strategic sourcing of feature teams

To succeed in this role, you'll need knowledge and experience of portfolio management theories, models and practices, including scaled Agile frameworks and Prince 2 methodologies, within an Agile or DevOps environment.

In addition, you'll need:

  • An appropriate portfolio management qualification, with mentoring or coaching experience in Agile and SAFe with Agile Portfolio Management
  • The ability to communicate complex technical concepts clearly to your peers and management level colleagues
  • Good collaboration and stakeholder management skills, with customer centricity at the core
  • Experience driving transformation initiatives
