  • Agree project objectives across Finance, Tech, Sales, Product and Marketing, Service and people streams
  • Create project plan for the above, including detailed technical integration plans
  • Establish and streamline all work systems and operational processes
  • Ensure the right structure is in place for the integration to succeed, making difficult changes where needed
  • Manage the project delivery team, as well as liaise closely with functional leads, to deliver projects goals
  • Ensure that all the aims of the project are met
  • Use of systems and clear reporting tools to keep track of people and progress – Evaluation of the success of the project against its benchmarking and sharing lessons or best practice for future integrations
  • Assist in recruitment of different functional specialists as required
  • Oversee the Financial aims of the project
  • Regular reporting to the steering committee
  • Work with members of the management team who will be aligned with your goals, and focused on helping you to succeed
