Project Manager - Digital Analytics

Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

Job Introduction

We are seeking a Project Manager to join our Data & Analytics team on a permanent basis.

The position is based at Broadcast Centre in London (hybrid working available).

This role sits as part of the Chief Customer Officer Group’s Analytics team and is responsible for delivering key Analytics projects. Initially this includes an upgrade to both the BBC’s AV reporting capability and its data ingest pipeline, but will expand to include other strategic Analytics priorities. You will work with both Product and Platform in the BBC and will also need to liaise and manage third party technology suppliers.

Role Responsibility

As a Project Manager you will be responsible for projects and delivery of project outcomes on time and to deadlines. You will map and manage project phases and communicate with stakeholders across the business. You will identify dependencies, manage and report on project progress, and quickly and efficiently dealing with escalations and issue that may arise.

This role has no functional direct reports but you will be required to manage cross-product and cross-function projects. Your project team includes Business Analysts, Data Analysts and Data Engineers.

The Ideal Candidate

You will be an experienced Project Manager who has worked with multiple workstreams and digital products.

It is essential that you have experience of running multi-threaded projects that lead to a single time-bound goal. In addition you must have experience of both waterfall and agile product delivery, and be comfortable managing and using collaboration tools such as Confluence and JIRA.

You’ll have strong experience of proactively identifying, prioritising and delivering projects which have demonstrable benefits for businesses along with successful management of projects of significant scale and complexity and having been delivered to challenging deadlines. You will have experience of working with a diverse set of stakeholders, and will have demonstrated your ability to work across the business to make things happen.

Whilst you don’t need analytics experience, you will need to have worked with digital products and an engineering team.
