Job Description

Project Coordinator

We are replacing large sections of our core ERP functionality across the merchanting brands. This work will be conducted across a 3-5 year programme and will be deployed in a staged basis. This programme of work requires significant organisation, oversight and administration. The Project coordinator function provides this structure and ensures that the programme is planned, facilitated and coordinated.

This role will encompass a number of key areas, these include;

You will compile and manage the programme plan. This includes tracking the status of programme deliverables and milestones, the identification of areas of programme slippage, incomplete tasks and resource conflicts.

Maintain programme level risk and issue coordination. This includes capturing issues and risks during the normal course of the programme, ensuring they are reflected on the RAID log for the programme and then assisting the programme manager in obtaining updates and closure to the issues and actions raised.

Managing the capture, collation and answering of questions from software vendors. The core systems requirements set is complex and in some areas, allows flexibility for considerable configuration from a vendor perspective. As a result, the requirements are deliberately non-prescriptive. This leads to significant questioning from vendors that need to be managed, answered and shared with all other vendors in the process.

Manage all vendor visits, events and showcases, coordinate and manage the set-up and maintenance of vendor, contract and FTE personnel within the Core development office.

It would be great if you had…

  • Experience within large scale projects and programmes

  • Experience of events planning and coordination

  • Confident with Stakeholder engagement

  • Strong task management skills

  • Programme planning and coordination experience

  • Ideally you will have event management knowledge

  • Experience of programme and project planning

  • Extensive knowledge of the task management and planning would be an advantage
