Job Description

We are looking for an experienced Technical Project Manager to join a growing technology business operating in the media industry for a six month contract.

Having undertaken a period of sustained growth, they are looking to review their disaster recovery and backup capabilities for their data heavy, business critical applications. This is a complex environment, and the role will entail bringing together multiple stakeholders, external suppliers and engineering teams. This is a great opportunity to join a successful, innovative business and play a key role in delivering a robust and secure disaster recovery strategy that will facilitate their continued growth.

The core focus of the role will be to manage the discovery, planning and execution of a vital disaster recovery and backup initiative. This will include reviewing existing capabilities, and putting together an effective long term strategy. You will be heavily involved at every stage, including discovery, research, stakeholder engagement, costing and execution. It's a relatively unstructured environment, so you will need to be comfortable adapting your approach accordingly, while driving the project through, as it is time-critical. You will be dealing with lots of stakeholders, and will need to manage expectations, and influence people who may have conflicting opinions.

To be considered for this role you must have a strong background in Technical Project Management roles, and you will be confident in your abilities and able to hit the ground running. Ideally, you will have worked in a media environment, but experience working with complex, data heavy systems, and interacting with multiple product and engineering teams will be considered. You will have proven experience throughout the project management life cycle, in particular supplier and stakeholder management, and an understanding of Oracle databases and software development projects.

Any experience managing a DR review, or implementing a new DR strategy, would be highly advantageous. You must be able to quickly build effective working relationships, be organised and diligent in your approach, and able to communicate on a technical level with engineering teams.

This is a six month contract opportunity, and you will need to be able to start immediately.

If this sounds interesting, please contact Will Fraser at Handle Recruitment for more information.
