Are you seeking to develop your project management skills within new industry sectors and project environments?  Could you build a career as a consultant within our supportive, growing team?

Nine Feet Tall is an award-winning project management consultancy, with deep expertise in IT system implementations. Over the past fourteen years we’ve delivered more than £100m in value for clients across a range of industry sectors.  Whilst our projects are often complex, our approach is simple – we deliver quality work that adds real value to organisations. For us this means developing close relationships with clients, tailoring our approach rather than applying a ‘one size fits all’ method, listening instead of telling, and focusing on actions not words to make change happen.

Our team is growing, and we are now looking for great people who share our approach to join us.  As a Principal Consultant you will:

  • Take a lead role in delivering projects for external clients, managing the end-to-end project lifecycle, the budget, and key stakeholder relationships.
  • Contribute to business development activity by developing existing successful client relationships and growing accounts.
  • Develop other people through mentoring and training more junior consultants.
  • Manage internal projects to build capability and drive improvement.

Previous project management experience is vital for success in this role, as is a genuine desire to be part of our growing business and contribute to its success.  You’ll need to be able to demonstrate that you:

  • Have a successful track record of delivering projects or workstreams within large programmes, including specific experience of: project governance & reporting, requirements gathering, vendor selection, data migration, and test management.
  • Have developed and managed stakeholder relationships on projects.
  • Bring exceptional communication and influencing skills that will enable you to lead others.
  • Are flexible to travel and work away from home during the week as required.
  • Are educated to degree level, ideally with an additional project/programme management qualification.

We are a vibrant and successful business, offering a stimulating and supportive working environment where effort is appreciated and rewarded.  In return for your knowledge, skills and experience we will make ongoing investment in your professional development and provide fantastic opportunities for you to progress your career.

We are an equal opportunities employer and value diversity.
