The PHOENIX Group is a pan-European pharmaceutical wholesaling and retailing company - one of the top 5 pharmaceutical wholesalers in the world. It operates exclusively in Europe with its UK headquarters based in Runcorn, Cheshire, from where they support the local business activities across a UK network of 14 distribution depots, over 500 retail community pharmacies and over 6,000 + staff nationwide.

Phoenix Healthcare Distribution is undergoing major strategic changes as it re positions itself in the market place. The Programme Management Office (PMO) is instrumental to these activities in maintaining the associated management processes and supporting the organisations to achieve their strategic projects and programmes of work.

A Business Project Manager is needed to join the PMO at the UK Headquarters, Runcorn. The successful candidate will have a thorough understanding of the whole business change lifecycle and be fully cognizant of the risks associated with these endeavours.

You will understand the need for project structure and have had experience of different project management methodologies. You will be responsible for defining and establishing the appropriate project management environments, advising and leading teams on a day to day basis. You will be able to apply project management principles appropriately, eliciting their value without recourse to one specific methodology.

You may have served time as an IT project manager. Therefore you should have an understanding of the systems development lifecycle and thereby an awareness of its business critical nature and the common risks arising from that type of work.

You will be self-motivated, able to lead, in conjunction with business leaders, multiple, complex projects and be someone the company has confidence in and looks to for advice.
