Business Project Manager – Smart Metering

Havant / Reading

Up to £55,669 plus excellent benefits

SSE is looking for brilliant people to join us on our journey to support the government’s mandate to deliver smart meters to customers by the end of 2020.

Our Deployment Operations Centre (DOC) sits within Metering and Smart Transformation (MaST) and is responsible for governing SSE’s delivery of the mandate.

We’re looking for a Business Project Manager to join the DOC’s Deployment Integration team. In this pivotal role, you’ll act as the interface between the deployment operations capability, the Smart Programme and the many business functions working towards the mandate. You’ll be responsible for driving deployment readiness plans and in addition, you’ll identify cross-functional dependencies, manage risks and hold quarterly performance reviews. Governance will play a key part in this role.

Strong stakeholder management, strong project management experience, and good change management skills are essential. You will be resilient, enthusiastic and driven by working in complex environments. You must be able to quickly develop a solid understanding of the smart meter rollout programme and the intricacies of the business and energy industry. Experience of the utilities industry or a highly regulated environment is advantageous but not essential.

You’ll be able to influence and negotiate at all levels whilst building strong networks across the business. A confident communicator, you’ll chair and facilitate governance forums and will demonstrate strong leadership skills for facilitating cross business teams. You’ll thrive on delivering results under pressure and changing priorities.

Travel between Havant and Reading will be required.

In return we can offer you a rewarding career in a top FTSE organisation and an excellent benefits scheme which includes a contributory pension scheme, share save and share incentive schemes, generous annual leave entitlement with the option to purchase additional leave, discounted energy, phone and broadband, plus a host of other lifestyle choices.

This post is open to both internal and external candidates. As a courtesy, internal candidates should advise their line manager prior to submitting an application.

The successful candidate may be subject to the Company's verification and vetting process which includes a basic criminal record check.
