WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR? 


Our Endava family is growing! We are seeking an independent, tenacious, Agile Project Manager to join our Project Delivery Management team. As an Agile Project Manager at Endava, you will have a minimum 4 years of experience in the end-to-end management of software projects, with ideally a strong understanding of warehouse management systems for this role.

As an Agile Project Manager (PM), you will take a people-first approach to leadership and be highly self-motivated.

In this role, you will have the flexibility to adapt to different roles, as the client needs, and be unphased by date or plan changes made by the client.
