You also appreciate the importance of working together when issues do arise, to find the best and most appropriate solutions. Key elements of the role are: Financial Management
  • Monitoring and managing allocated project budgets and regularly reforecasting, passing information back to the Account Director and Finance Team.

Essential Skills & Requirements:

  • A minimum of 5 years’ experience of delivering projects within a software development or technology-based environment.
