At Pets at Home Group we’re developing technology to transform pet care. Join us and work on amazing projects that will help shape, build and deliver our next-generation holistic pet care service. By joining us you’ll create new ways to support pets and their owners to live happier lives together.

As a Senior Project Manager, you’ll be at the heart of making things happen – on time, on budget and on spec.  We’ll look to you to lead a wide variety of challenging projects, from scoping to close.

You’ll be working on brand-new developments, you’ll help the delivery of leading technology and you’ll be focused on achieving optimum performance, meaning there’s just as much focus on people and outcomes as technology and planning. At the same time, you’ll use your expertise to help us develop and improve project management capabilities across our organisation.

Our goal is a fully personalised customer experience that integrates pet care across store, multi-channel and vets to deliver seamless service. For you, that means working on a range of projects, both large and small, simple and complex, that transform our business. You’ll deliver IT and change projects across our diverse portfolio of 400+ stores and 460 vet practices, specialist referral hospitals and distribution centres around the UK. The ambition, scale and variety of our work sets us apart, and we’re backed by unprecedented investment.

You’ll have a strong track-record of project management in a change/technology environment, including successful project delivery across multiple projects of varying scale, size and complexity.  This should include experience of planning, managing budgets and overseeing third-party suppliers in project delivery. With clear leadership capabilities, you’ll be ready to manage, motivate and mentor others, as well as to collaborate across disciplines. You’ll also have the communication and influencing skills to manage relationships with both colleagues and external contacts. You’re likely to have a professional qualification such as APM or PMI.

Far more than a retailer, Pets at Home Group is the UK’s leading pet care specialist, fulfilling every possible pet and owner need, from food and accessories to grooming and vet services. Since 1991, we’ve been building a business around pets and their owners and we’ve set our sights on becoming the best pet care business in the world. Join us now and you can be part of that journey, developing your future as we develop ours. This is a place where you can take pride and passion in your work within an inspiring, professional team that’s focused on supporting pets and their owners to live happier lives together.

We’re driven by the wellbeing of pets and we make sure we look after our people too. We depend on your commitment and innovation, and reward it with competitive pay and comprehensive benefits. Together we’ll create the future of pet care.
