Become part of the team

Novicell is a consultancy that helps companies realise their digital potential. That’s why our motto is “business online” in each one of Novicell’s five business areas. Thanks to positive and regular growth year on year, we are looking to hire another project manager for our offices in central London.

The ideal candidate would be an individual with a strong background in project management. You do not need to have specific experience in digital; we value experience from other industries. Who knows what it could bring?

Instead, you are the detail-orientated, always-on-top-of-things, quick-on-the-uptake member of the team with a desire to share with and learn from everyone else. Demonstrable experience of all these points would be handy.

Project manager with business understanding

Your primary task will be to plan and manage web development projects from start to finish. We have several clients already on this journey with us. Some started more recently than others. With the right support and guidance from the Head of Operations in the UK, and our project teams in Denmark, you would take over these projects, owning their success.

You will be given a high level of responsibility from the start, and good opportunities to positively influence your own business day. Over a week, you will work as a ‘classical’ project manager, planning and preparing status reports, but you will also take part in process optimisation and learn more about software architecture or business intelligence. You will attend prospect and client meetings, sales pitches and events. As such, it is also crucial that you have a good deal of business understanding.

Who are you?

It's your personality that really sets you up for this position. You are detail-orientated, accountable and a good communicator. You will be responsible for Novicell’s dialogue with the customer, agree what to do and when it will be delivered. You also have close dialogue with the developers on the project and you are responsible for the solutions you are working with.

We also ask that:

  • You have experience from a broadly similar position
  • You are passionate about project management and want to quickly grow your technical understanding so that you can engage in sparring about the solutions and architecture of projects.
  • You are committed to creating a good user experience for your customers’ users.
  • You are good at planning, project management, monitoring your projects and having a realistic approach to things.
  • You can keep track of complex projects and manage and service all stakeholders in the project.
  • You have experience with project management of agile development
  • You have excellent written and oral English skills
  • You are good at communicating with both customers and colleagues
  • You are used to stepping into your customers’ shoes
  • You are a ‘player/manager’ - who can both have your fingers in the code, but also ensure that you don’t lose focus of your overall goals

Most importantly, you are diligent, but not to the extent that you are a workaholic; nice, but not so nice that you let things slip.

At Novicell we are both of these things; internally and externally. This means we treat each other properly and provide a high level of service to our customers. It must be fun to go to work. Not just for you, but for everyone.

This is how you’ll experience Novicell:

  • An unpretentious organization with high degree of personal freedom
  • A creative and inspiring environment with the potential to influence the company's development
  • Central-London location in a co-working space with free barista coffee, beer, ping pong and daily events (yoga, pop-up stores, tasting events)

Practical information

  • The salary range for this role is £30,000-£38,000 per annum.
  • The workplace is at our office on Chancery Lane in Central London

The application deadline is as fast as possible. We hold ongoing conversations until we find the right fit. Ideally, we’d be looking for a start date of 2 January 2019
