Project Manager

This role will bolster Veezu’s Project Management Office (“PMO”) with responsibility for leading on strategic projects ranging from transformational change to business acquisitions. Veezu’s PMO sits at the heart of our growth taking the lead on the planning, coordination, delivery and evaluation of key value-accretive projects.

Each acquisition is governed via a dedicated project team and as Project Management you would be intrinsically involved in all aspects of the process including origination of the acquisition, pre-acquisition process including operational, financial and legal due diligence, deal execution, planning for completion and integration and delivering the integration plan. Acquisitions can either be by business or share transfers and can involve complex deal structures.

• INFRASTRUCTURE CHANGE
As Veezu continues its exciting change program, new ways of working and automation are key targets for the business which are governed via a dedicated project team. As the Project Manager, you will take responsibility for driving change across the organisation ranging from the introduction of new IT systems to new product offerings for passengers.
