Contract Description

Role: Programme Manager – SaaS Product (Contractor)

Duration: 2months

Location: Remote

Day rate: Competitive (outside of IR35)




For the past 10 years, Unai has been a technology consultancy providing software engineering and data science to organisations driving positive change. From this experience we have identified a key need that is common across a range of our clients.


Following early success, we are expanding the team to bring a new SaaS product to market and are looking for an experienced Programme Manager to initiate the product delivery successfully. This will initially be a 2-month contract (outside IR35) and you can be based remotely.


This is a key role and demonstratable experience of bringing a new product to market - from concept through to benefits realisation is essential. In the role you will be leading a high-performing software engineering team, using Agile delivery methods and ensuring a shared understanding and commitment to the product vision and roadmap. You’ll be working very closely with the Senior Management team to ensure the product gets the support and resources required based on your projected resourcing plan and programme budget.


As the lead in our product delivery, you’ll own the client engagements, drive a “start up” approach to product delivery whilst ensuring appropriate governance and control. The role will also include overseeing risk and issue management, ensuring mitigations are in place to address issues between elements of the programme, resolving these through negotiated agreement or escalation.





  • A robust understanding and experience of leading projects, using various project leadership methodologies (Agile, Waterfall, etc)
  • Exemplary leadership capability evidenced in creating a high-performance culture, drawing on specialist skills and expertise effectively, bringing together diverse capabilities
  • Proven experience of initiating a software product delivery programme, preferably a SaaS product
  • Evidence of ability to build teams, make sound decisions and drive actions
  • A deep understanding of the Managing Successful Programmes framework, and ideally a certified practitioner
  • Extensive experience of leading Agile initiatives including Agile product development initiatives and Agile delivery initiatives
  • Experienced leadership of technical teams, working with technical experts to drive solution deliverables to deadlines.
  • Proven background of guiding the development of compelling business cases
  • Track record of working collaboratively with stakeholders and customers to agree quantified realisable benefits and the development of Benefit Realisation Plans and metrics to monitor impact
  • Evidence of being able to build effective stakeholder and partner relationships at senior level, which are influential and elicit support at senior level
