We are looking for someone to inspire and lead the team as well as innovate to adopt and embrace new and iterative methodologies to support and expedite delivery and quality assurance. As a pivotal area of the new operating model, we are looking to steer the PMO to have a greater focus on predictable outcomes, transparent reporting, faster delivery, and quicker realisation of benefits.
