London, United Kingdom
Our client is a leading global software vendor, delivering their multi-award winning performance & attribution solutions (SS&C, Anova, Bi-Sam, B1, StatPro, Factset, DST, Eagle Pace, PMAR, Sylvan, VPD ) to top-tier asset management / fund management firms.
They are continuing their growth with the addition of a Senior Project Manager / Senior Project Delivery Manager in their London City office (European travel up to 3 days / week often required).
You will take full ownership for delivering the software projects through the full project lifecycle including managing multiple simultaneous projects. These projects vary in size, complexity and timescales so you must be able to effectively move between multiple disparate workstreams.
The Project Management role will involve project initiation planning, documentation, resource allocation and extensive client engagement to identify and mitigate project risks and drive delivery through to go-live.
The software focuses around performance and attribution covering Fixed Income, Rates, Equities etc – previous experience in these business areas is preferred but not essential provided you have the necessary Project Management skills.
You will have worked in the financial services technology industry (ideally for a vendor) delivering complex and business critical software solutions. In addition, applications will be judged on the following areas:
- Cross functional engagement (business, IT, Operations etc) both internal & with clients
- Hands-on Project Management / Project Delivery experience
- Ability to investigate, determine and define project governance process and reporting structures
- Running project team resources
Ideally you will have worked to deliver performance & attribution software solutions (e.g. SS&C, Anova, Bi-Sam, B1, StatPro, Factset, DST, Eagle Pace, PMAR, Sylvan, VPD) however candidates with Senior Project Management experience from other financial technology / trading systems / risk management system areas may also be considered.
If you have the required skills, knowledge and experience and are looking for a challenging and progressive role with a fast moving and highly successful software vendor please get in touch ASAP. My client offers massive exposure to the top-tier asset management industry in addition to the opportunity to work on some of the biggest and most complex projects in the performance & attribution / performance measurement part of the financial services industry.
