At some point in your career, starting a new IT project isn’t the thrill it used to be. That’s when you should switch to VodafoneZiggo

As a seasoned IT Project Manager, you know the ropes. And even though you always give it your best shot, at some point in your career, the prospect of a new project just isn’t as thrilling as when you started out. If you sometimes suffer from the ‘been there, done that’ blues, a switch to VodafoneZiggo might be just what the doctor ordered. Because our Senior IT Project Managers not only tackle the most diverse and technologically demanding projects, but also contribute directly to the customer satisfaction of over 9.7 million people…

As our Senior IT Project Manager TCFO you are accountable for the on-time, on-budget, on-quality delivery of end-to-end IT projects for a range of converged solutions. And if that sounds suspiciously similar to your current position, keep in mind that the ‘devil’ is in the detail. Or rather, in the invigorating scope and impact of the projects you’ll take on at VodafoneZiggo. Projects here range from masterminding an infinitely scalable server park for our new Utrecht office, to helping our marketing department introduce new services to millions of customers.

It’s up to you and your team of talented Process and Solution Designers to effectively deliver these projects and manage their operational embedding. This calls for a structured approach and a keen eye for spotting dependencies that require extra tender loving care. Also, the business occasionally wants to tweak the scope/goals of ongoing projects if this can further enhance customer value. So, in addition to strong organizational skills, you’ll need to be quick-witted, and make sure that all stakeholders remain fully informed, engaged and committed.

In summing up, you

  • Are accountable for end-to-end execution of a variety of IT projects in the TCFO domain
  • Devise project roadmaps, align and commit all internal and external stakeholders
  • Manage the successful delivery of your projects in terms of time, quality and costs
  • Develop and advocate best project management practices

What you bring to the table
A proven project management track record in a relevant sector, such as telecoms or similarly commercially oriented environments. You feel at home in a demanding role that requires you to continually strike a balance between ‘business ambitions’ and ‘technical feasibility’. Aligning those is your forte! It hopefully goes without saying that you know how to motivate and facilitate project teams (7-15 people), are used to leveraging quality/costs, and are IT-savvy enough to challenge hardcore IT professionals at their own level.

Your key assets

  • Master’s degree, 8+ years IT project management experience
  • Solid IT delivery and design knowledge
  • Coding skills aren’t necessary, test affinity would be an asset
  • Results-oriented, coaching qualities, strong sense of ownership
  • Coaching experience within Project Management
  • Agile knowledge is an advance

You have to live in the Netherlands. Relocation is not an option.

About this Position
This role is positioned one level below the Manager Project Management IT, whom you’ll advise continuously.  You will coach an average of 5-15 IT professionals. The total span of service may also include external developers in a variety of countries.

You can work from either our Amsterdam, Maastricht or Utrecht office.

Of course you will frequently travel to all 3 locations.

Enjoy the benefits
Based on a 40-hour work week at VodafoneZiggo, you can count on:

  • A gross salary between €3767 and €5381 per month, with potential for growth and an attractive bonus scheme
  • An ambitious employer, who recognizes that when you develop, VodafoneZiggo develops. Which is why we offer education and training opportunities and provide possibilities to take your next career step(s) here, too
  • 20 days paid vacation, with an option to buy up to 40 additional days off
  • You also receive a monthly Benefit Budget of 14,95% of your gross salary; you can use this to put money aside for vacation plans, save up additional sabbatical leave, buy extra days off, or you can simply take the cash. The choice is yours!
  • You get a voucher for a phone, and (of course) a Vodafone subscription to go with it. Which you are also welcome to use for private calls.
  • As an ambassador of our organization, you obviously get discounts on Vodafone and Ziggo products
  • With an eye to your retirement, we offer a pension scheme that also allows you to save for extra retirement income
  • We offer an NS-Business Card of your choice, including the option of a 1st class train pass that you can also use privately
  • If you want, you can work for us part-time
  • Flexibility: work when and where you perform at your best
  • We value social impact. You can take part in several initiatives in this area, during work time. For example the Online Masters program, in which you teach kids how to navigate the digital world responsibly
  • We also offer good (financial) arrangements if you find yourself going through a rough patch, such as our disability plan
  • And we offer discounts on health insurance, sports memberships, day care and more
