  • The Opportunity

    We seek an experienced, qualified Project Manager to manage the implementation of a Time Intelligence System that will capture working time records for 200 users across multiple teams.

There is a tight scope for the implementation having a clear focus on setting up effective time-recording with minimal system integrations. We are looking to deliver a quick-paced and well managed implementation and roll-out.
