Job Description

We are a business who is crazy about customers. We use disruptive thinking every day to ensure that we are capturing every opportunity to deliver the ultimate experience to our customers and people. We empower our people to Do it. Own it. Love it and that’s why they choose to work for us. Here, it’s never just a job – We care about what we do and the impact we have, and that’s what connects us.

What’s the opportunity?

You will be leading a number of concurrent business-oriented technology projects in the Retail division of Vocus from concept to closure within scope, time, budgetary and resourcing constraints. Leveraging traditional, agile and customer centric approaches in designing and implementing technology solutions, you will deliver projects that enable Vocus Retail to keep pushing the industry and stay ahead in the market.

As well as working across both our telecommunication and energy portfolios, you’ll also have exposure working on projects across multiple brands that service both our consumer and SMB customers. Life in this team is fast moving and your ability to juggle concurrent demands whilst working with high levels of accuracy and integrity will be key to your success.

What you’ll be doing:

- Working on projects in our Retail business where we provide both telecommunications and energy services.
- You’ll define and document project scope, goals and deliverables that support business goals in collaboration with senior management and stakeholders.
- Develop project plans and associated communication documents.
- Develop a business case for relevant approval.
- Secure appropriate resourcing for the project, coordinating with stakeholders to ensure appropriate priority against other initiatives.
- Liaise with sponsors and stakeholders to ensure effective and efficient project delivery.
- Proactively manage project expectations with stakeholders to ensure no surprises.
- Lead and facilitate effective meetings and project governance activities.
- Act as the point of escalation for issues requiring leadership engagement for direction and resolution.
- Provide structured and timely status reports to the project Steering Committee.
- Record and monitor all budgeted project expenditures and ensure the project operates within the approved budget.
- Identify, evaluate and manage risks, issues and assumptions associated with project activities and take appropriate actions.


What you need to bring to the table:

- Demonstrable experience in technology project delivery.
- Experience within the telecommunications or energy industry would be a bonus, but isn’t a must have for this role.
- Ability to work on concurrent projects and interrelated dependencies with conflicting deadlines is will be crucial to you successful in this role.
- Understanding of project methodologies – Agile, Prince 2 and / or PMBOK.
- Strong planning abilities including effective financial management.
- Effective facilitation and the ability to influence key stakeholders.
- Be someone with strong initiative, drive and comfortable taking ownership of your projects.
