Senior Consultant, Project Manager - MDRx
We need your help to build our world-class
project and delivery management offering.
Our ideal candidate is driven by a passion for envisioning the future
for exciting clients. You are equally enthusiastic about collaborating
with development teams to execute plans within the designated time and
budget. At this stage of their career, they embrace the opportunity to
share their knowledge and take on line management responsibilities.
They possess a keen insight into fostering not only their own career
growth but also that of others, displaying adeptness in nurturing and
guiding careers. They excel in the capacity of a coach and mentor,
finding their stride in this role. Additionally, they enjoy
contributing to the development of processes and methodologies.
This candidate possesses an entrepreneurial spirit, a "roll up
your sleeves" mentality, and a proactive attitude towards taking
ownership. They value autonomy and seek opportunities for personal and
professional growth. Furthermore, they are ready to assume a
client-facing role with minimal supervision.
Our ideal candidate has a solid understanding of Agile methodologies,
including Scrum and Kanban. Preferably you'd hold a certification in
this area, but it's also very important that you be adaptable and
willing to tailor your approach to accommodate each client's specific
requirements. They possess the skills and experience necessary to
effectively plan and prioritise deliverables and resources, even when
working on multiple projects simultaneously. Managing client
expectations, schedules, commercials, assets, and scope is comfortable
territory for them.
Solving problems is a source of joy for this candidate, and they
thrive in a role where they can make decisions that align with project
goals and objectives. They excel at building strong relationships with
both project teams and clients, often facilitating workshops to define
and review scope, requirements, and deliverables.

of emerging tech, but at the moment we do a lot of web3,
metaverse, and data science work. If you didn't come in with much
knowledge about any of these spaces (which, by the way, we don't
expect) you'll have begun upskilling so you can talk confidently

Haven't done everything listed in the
'first 30 days' category yet?Studies have shown that women and
people of colour are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet
every single qualification. At MDRx we are dedicated to building a
diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you're excited
about this role but your past experience doesn't align perfectly
with this job description, we encourage you to apply anyway.
We're a bit of an anomaly: a
startup tech consulting company backed by an established law firm.
The 'startup' part means there's a lot of room for employee autonomy
and opportunity to help design the company, whereas the 'law firm'
part is why we have nice benefits, pretty conference rooms, and a
runway to succeed.
We specialise in emerging tech,
and we're on a pretty hefty mission to change the face of
consultancy, putting meaning behind digital transformation by
delivering experiences for customers that create value and impact.
That also means our culture really cares about people, not just
profit, and definitely not just utilisation.
Our law firm origins allow us to
combine leading business, tech, and legal expertise. That tends to
look like building software that's legally complex… but we go for
the interesting stuff, which is why we often end up in Web3,
Metaverse, or Data Science worlds.
We work with a variety of sizes of
organisations, from funded startups to large companies to government
agencies, but always try to deliver value in an agile manner.
Hybrid, with flexible hours. We have a
great office just outside the Holborn tube station that we ask you
to come into twice a week.This includes team days several times a
month, away days twice a year, and whenever we run in-person client
workshops. Although we're in a 'hold on we're blasting off' phase of
growth, we don't ask our people to work taxing hours unless a
project is in absolute crunch time.
