Multiplex are looking for a PM with strong experience of vendor management and commercial negotiations. Ideally someone who has worked with external device vendors like Dell, Lenovo, etc.
 
  • Previous experience of IT device procurement is a nice to have but not crucial.
  • It will be a global role – there will be stakeholders in UK, Dubai and Australia. So there would be some out of hours calls.
  • Most important role is for the PM to work with the BA to define what is and isn’t possible within 3 months. First 6 weeks are crucial to define whether Multiplex's ambition is possible by the end of 2021.
  • They are looking for someone who could hit the ground running very fast and be able to pull together a business case, plan and proposal for Multiplex rapidly.
  • No people management required. Would report into Head of Delivery for Multiplex.
 
There is also a requirement for the PM to cover for a cyber project (involving a Security Operations Centre roll out).
 
Cyber PM responsibilities:
  • Oversee the implementation of a new managed SOC service and set up of SIEM tool (Microsoft Sentinel). Strong vendor management skills required to facilitate regular checkpoints and update internal stakeholders.
  • Support with coordination of site work in two regions to improve the security of on site server technology.
  • Support where required with other cyber security initiatives being run through Multiplex.
  • Key focus is commercial negotiation, vendor management and Device as a Service.
