We are seeking a Project Manager who is a driven individual, with proven experience in garment and textile manufacturing, who embraces new technology and understands the role of digitalisation in the fashion industry.
The ideal candidate will have strong experience and knowledge of production planning, garment and textile manufacturing, supply chain and supporting software and technology. Experience of managing software implementations into businesses, ideally manufacturing is highly desirable.
This is a senior delivery role, with a view to supporting the accelerated growth of the Bangladesh market and therefore the Project Manager needs to be able to operate with high autonomy and demonstrate leadership skills in addition to being confident and articulate when liaising with Customer’s Senior Team.
Reporting to the Professional Services Manager, you are responsible for defining and overseeing the project management process, playing a direct role in the day to day management and implementation of assigned projects, and supporting implementation consultants where they are playing a lead role. The Project Manager works closely with the client, and the Coats Digital team to ensure successful project delivery. A successful project is one which ensures customer satisfaction through on time, on cost and in full delivery of a solution, and such that it makes a real difference to a client’s business performance and allows Coats Digital to deliver on its own financial commitments. Throughout the project lifecycle the Project Manager demonstrates awareness of cost, speed, and efficiency drivers, (both internally and client side), as well as commercial influences, adapting accordingly.
The Project Manager must understand the client’s requirements, as well as industry best practice and software capability, translating these into the Coats Digital software configuration and project plan, whilst being mindful of a client’s business processes (both as-is and to-be). The configuration must support, streamline, and enhance these processes to enable the client to demonstrate a strong return-on-investment (ROI). The project plan must be aligned to the client’s plan, Coats Digital resources, and targets, and should include all the activities required to deliver the solution.
The Project Manager needs to identify and control/manage:
- project scope and client expectations
- the time required to deliver the project
- cost of delivery (efficiency)
- resources required
- quality of delivery
- all dependencies on the project
- all identified issues and risks
The Project Manager will become an expert in the fashion supply chain, project management and Coats Digital products keeping pace with development.
