Senior Brexit Project Manager - Contract/FTC

The key purpose of this role is to ensure the business continues to operate effectively after Brexit. The successful candidate will utilise Project Management skills, and provide direction to multiple functions within the company. A successful project may be considered as a timely organisation change to accommodate the necessary processes and new operational models required by the new National Legislation and EU Agreements.

A number of teams have been formed within the organisation to determine the possible impacts of Brexit and activity commenced on the basis of a ‘Hard Brexit'. To ensure a coordinated effort across multiple functions, the Brexit Project Manager shall work with the assigned teams to deliver the changes necessary as agreed with the EMEA Executive Committee.

The position holder shall:
* Build and maintain a thorough understanding of Brexit in the context of the company's business and manage requests for information from third parties such as ABPI.
* Document and obtain senior management approval of the working assumptions under which the Brexit project will be implemented.
* Design a governance and change management structure, which ensures Senior Leadership approval and efficient sub-team communication, for the Brexit project that accommodates the UK/EU negotiation process.
* Provide a clear direction to department project team members/managers, based on the current working assumptions and any agreed changes.
* Work with department project teams to ensure that interdependencies between sub-projects are well understood and documented. Where sub-projects do not link the position holder will track progress against agreed milestones/KPIs.
* Provide Monthly Management reports to the EMEA Executive Committee on: Progress, Budget, Risks and Issues.

It is expected that the position holder will run the project using traditional project methods as follows:
* Scope Definition: The PM will author Project Charters/Execution Plans in conjunction with departmental managers/representatives.
* Time: The PM shall construct and manage a Project Plan, with clear assignment of activities, interdependencies between tasks and measurable milestones.
* Budget: The PM shall construct and be responsible for the project budget and monitor other associated costs that are not accounted for within the project directly.
* Quality: The PM will determine critical quality attributes of the project and monitor these with stakeholders to ensure that these are met.
* Risk Management: Exercises will be run with the team to determine/monitor project risks, with mitigation strategies employed to maximise probability of success.
* Assumptions Management: The PM will work with stakeholders to understand what assumptions are being made and what assumptions need to be made to enable the project to progress, even when there is ambiguity or uncertainty associated with Brexit.
* Communication: The PM shall determine a robust communication plan to ensure all stakeholders needs are accommodated. This will include summary reports to the Executive Committee/Japan, Impacted UK/EU staff, Project team members and other senior personnel across the EMEA region.

* Resource: The PM shall work with appointed senior managers to ensure that resource is assigned and built into business plans.
