Job Role: Project Manager
Location: Basildon, United Kingdom
Closing Date: *18/11/18
At Wilmington Plc we know how critical our employees are to us achieving success, so we make sure we recruit great people to help us to maintain the trust of our customers and develop new, innovative products. This is a place where you can truly progress. A place where you can be heard. Here, combining know-how with a great attitude will give you the opportunity to succeed. We are able to offer exceptional career development opportunities #WilmingtonCareers and as such we are now looking for an experienced Project Manager to work within our Basildon based Project Management Team.
So what does an experienced project manager in Wilmington Healthcare actually do?
It would probably be easier to say what you don't do in this role!
If you are an experienced Project Manager who is looking for the next step in your Project Management career journey, this could well be what you are looking for. We are looking for someone to help Wilmington Healthcare to achieve their business objectives so this is a high profile opportunity.
You will need PM experience as you will be managing the end to end process of a variety of projects from Software Development through to Marketing and Consultancy. We would love it if you came from a Healthcare Project Management background or similar specifically involving CRM data flows and service delivery, software development, data analytics, research, (NHS) Commissioning Excellence and Pharma Business Intelligence. Any previous experience in these and/or similar areas would be beneficial but if not, don't worry as long as you have project management experience, that's the main thing.
This is a truly autonomous PM role with complete ownership of small to medium sized internal and external projects across the breadth of the Wilmington Healthcare (WHC) portfolio of products and services.
If you are the type of character who is comfortable challenging requirements, considering and mitigating project risks and who can manage often demanding stakeholders, then this could well give you the challenge you are seeking. A Prince II or similar qualification would be helpful but it certainly isn't essential.
We're a fairly new team so it would be amazing if you could bring with you experience of managing Software Development, or digital IT projects but so long as you have the right attitude and good organisational project management skills, that's enough for us.
We are looking for forward thinkers who are keen to help us to develop the processes we have in place already and who can work with their peer group to promote the exchange of ideas and initiatives in order to improve the way we work.
It's a busy role so you'll need to be someone who can adapt to change and who is passionate about doing a good job whilst sometimes working under pressure. While projects are typically managed remotely from a single location, there will be the need from time to time to travel across WHC sites (Basildon, London, Nottingham) and client/supplier sites as/when required by project.
The need for strong influencing skills goes without saying but you also need to be a Project Management ambassedor, promoting the function internally as often as you can so that we can grow and develop our offerings meaning unlimited opportunity for you and the rest of the team to progress and take on even more diverse and varied projects.
What we need from you.
Experience of hands on complex project management comensurate with the role responsibilities detailed above
Exceptional organisational, prioritisation and problem solving skills
Can work proactively and autonomously taking personal responsibility in a high-paced high-pressured environment
What you get in return.

We offer variety, development and an opportunity to be part of a committed group of colleagues. We operate an open environment where you’ll be encouraged to make an impact. At Wilmington, our collaborative approach means your great ideas will be welcomed and your great work recognised.
