As a central function, the Innovation Delivery team work across all of Hydrock’s technical divisions and you will gain a broad exposure to a range of expertise, experiences and seniority.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Lead and manage digital projects from ideation through to delivery.
  • Clearly capture the benefits projects will bring and support the creation of business cases to justify investments.

  • Strong communicator with good presentation and written skills.
  • Comfortable working in a dynamic environment and able to adapt to change.
  • Eligible to live and work in the UK at the time you start employment

We are a small team so looking for someone who is a self-motivated and enthusiastic team player, happy to help others as needed and take on new challenges.

  • Previous experience using project management software (e.g. Jira, Confluence)
  • Previous experience creating wireframes
  • A project management qualification such as APM (PMQ) / Prince2 or equivalent.

No previous experience within the construction industry is required.

We are looking for the right person to learn and develop with our growing team. If you are excited by this role but don’t meet all the skills listed, or have other skills you would like to highlight, we are keen to hear from you, you may be the right person for the role.
