Senior Technical Project Manager - Interim - ASAP
TPP is currently represeting a large educational charity who are moving all its examinations online from September, including text based, image based and oral examinations. The online versions of the software are already available from the different suppliers, but data must be transferred to the new versions and the interfaces set up to the central registry of members and candidates. This registry is also being redeveloped in a separate, parallel project.
The timetable for holding the examinations in September requires that the new online systems are set up and tested by the end of July.
An experienced project manager is required to support the Examinations Operations Team, and to work with the external software suppliers, other internal projects and the central Information Systems team, to ensure that all technical issues are addressed and that the new systems are ready by the deadline. The essential qualities of this individual would be:
- Experienced, results orientated Project Manager, used to implementing information systems;
- A hybrid manager, equally able to deal at senior-level or to get hands dirty and lead technical teams from the front;
- Ability to work with all levels of user staff and management, the suppliers technical staff, and the internal IT team;
- And preferably experience dealing with Examination Software (including Speedwell Multiquest, Practique, Osirix) and with MS Dynamics;
