Our client uses the latest technology to bring new opportunities of work to people in developing countries to help fight poverty. So, if you are a Technical Programme Manager that has a passion for technology, business and making a difference in the world around you this could be the perfect opportunity for you.

With offices in four continents our client has a global presence. The UK base location is Reading and you will have the ability to work entirely remote.

You will be technically minded with the ability to ensure target architecture is right and ensure teams are on track with management and delivery needs. You will be accountable for the management of external engineering teams and more importantly ensure they have appropriate resources for projects.
