The Supply Chain organization that our IT team is supporting, has launched a multi-year and vast investment program in GB and Ireland to take advantage of ongoing business and prepare our future growth. New productions lines, new network execution strategy, automation in plants are example of projects IT is strongly contributing to deliver.
The Portfolio Lead will manage some of these business change projects for IT. You will ensure that all projects under your responsibility are tracking on scope, on time and on budget. Depending on the size of the project, you could be asked to manage several projects at the same time. You will be coached by your peers to follow internal methods and processes in relation with project management and will report to a Business Solution Manager.

There will be some travel with the role, probably a day or two a week to some of our production sites in Rugby and Leeds or to our Head Office in Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire.
