We are seeking talented, delivery-focused Project Managers to work directly for the COO on delivery of high priority projects which span more than one GSR functional area.

3/ the Project Manager manages delivery against the agreed timeline using a team drawn from different functional areas, updating all stakeholders during the process, and 

4/ delivery of the project with integration into BAU 

 

At appropriate times during the project delivery, provide contemporaneous feedback to Functional Heads on the performance of team members, to ensure high quality contribution (the COO will enforce this process)

 

  • Work with external business partners to have insight into future projects, maintaining partnerships through to the projects life-cycle and completion 

 

  • Lead up to three projects at any given time 

 

Your profile:

 

  • 8 or more years experience in delivering high profile projects in trading or “highly active” asset management through to successful completion; some experience with crypto is an advantage
