Job Description – Project Manager

Overview

The Project Manager is responsible for the successful delivery of ServiceNow implementation projects for our clients. These projects can vary greatly in size and complexity.  They cover initial ServiceNow deployment projects, where we assist clients in establishing their service support processes, and set-up ServiceNow to support, enforce and automate these processes, through to Phase ‘n’ projects, where we extend the reach of ServiceNow beyond Service Support (and even beyond IT), and into every aspect of Enterprise Service Management.  This may include bespoke application development to meet very specific client requirements.

This is predominantly a client-facing software development project management role, although as Computacenter ServiceNow Centre of Excellence expands there is also the opportunity to manage internal projects to help scale and mature the business.

The role reports to a Project Management Team Lead and is required to meet the obligations defined in the General and Specific Responsibilities sections of this document.  Additional responsibilities may also be set by a supervisor or manager, from time-to-time.

General Responsibilities

  • Communicate openly and effectively with clients, colleagues and management
  • Provide guidance to less senior staff if required
  • Present a professional image in conduct, attitude and attire
  • Keep abreast of industry trends in the Service Management arena and developments in ServiceNow applications
  • Share best practices and knowledge with colleagues
  • Adopt and conform to company standards and policies
  • Attend training and company meetings as necessary
  • Delivery of work according to agreed timescales

Specific Responsibilities

  • Direct and manage project delivery across the entire project lifecycle, from initial client engagement and project initiation, through to requirements analysis and capture, build, testing, deployment, early-life support, and project review
  • Reaffirm project scope against project objectives and goals, in collaboration with senior management and stakeholders
  • Effectively communicate project expectations to team members and customer stakeholders (including roles/responsibilities and areas of the project requiring essential customer involvement/input)
  • Estimate the resource and stakeholder participation required to achieve project goals
  • Determine and assess need for additional staff and/or consultants
  • Delegate tasks and responsibilities to appropriate personnel
  • Identify and resolve issues and conflicts within the project team
  • Identify and manage project dependencies and critical path
  • Plan and track project timelines and milestones using designated tools
  • Develop and deliver progress reports, proposals, requirements documentation and presentations
  • Determine the frequency and content of communications and status reports from the project team, analyse results, and troubleshoot problem areas
  • Proactively manage changes in project scope, identify issues and managing risks
  • Define project success criteria and disseminate to involved parties
  • Coach, mentor, motivate and supervise project team members
  • Provide feedback to Team Leads and management in respect to the recognition of quality work, and the need for development and improvement of people and processes
  • Manage ServiceNow deployment records and Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) administration, working with the Account Manager/Director to manage related customer communications in advance of the project’s ‘Review’ stage

Skills Required

Essential:

  • Training and preferably certification in Project Management methodologies (Prince2/PMI/Agile)
  • Previous experience of managing IT Service Management related projects
  • Previous experience of managing IT transformation or software development projects (preferably ServiceNow related)
  • Excellent inter-personal skills
  • Solid presentation and meeting facilitation skills
  • Ability to engage with customers at all levels of seniority 
  • Excellent written and verbal communication
  • Open and friendly personality
  • Be outgoing and customer facing 
  • Be self-managing and capable of working alone or as part of a team
