UK Programme Manager and Group Lead, Transition Project Management, Large Enterprise Operations
On her business group:
The Large Enterprise Operations (LEO) provides technology-based services to a wide range of customers. A typical Managed Print Service will help customers review the document management solutions in their business to gain control of assets and drive efficiencies with potential cost savings.
On her role:
As a Programme Manager I am responsible for the successful transition of a Xerox service which includes project set up, implementation and handover to the service delivery team.
As Portfolio Manager for UK projects, I have a team of Transition Managers all of whom have their own projects. I provide support to them on their projects and an escalation route for issues that cannot be resolved at project level.
On her team:
The team I work in directly is extremely varied in terms of experience, personalities and working styles. Whilst we all have specific Project Management traits, our backgrounds provide us with different customer and project experiences and a vast array of knowledge we can call upon to apply to a specific situation. We work well together as a team and we use the differences in our knowledge and skill sets to our advantage.
Best part of the job:
I enjoy the variety of my job as running each project is different dependent on the customer industry and the type of service. Another favourite part of my job is the large number of people I get to meet which helps to build up a wide Xerox network. I learn from them and we work together as a team to deliver successful projects to our customers.
Why she joined Xerox:
My Xerox career started as an IP Student during University and after completing my degree I came back! I returned to Xerox as part of a Graduate Programme and this was because I wanted to continue working for a company that had provided me with the most valuable work experience and I was keen to work for a large company with lots of diversity and plenty of career path opportunities. Moreover, why wouldn’t I want to work for a company that I knew was full of dedicated, loyal and passionate people?
Biggest benefit Xerox offers:
A wide range of career path opportunities and the support and encouragement from management sponsors for personal development/career advancement.
On her future at Xerox:
Xerox is a company that is constantly changing to ensure we remain innovative and have the ability to provide our customers with services that solve business problems. Based on this my future in Xerox is exciting with lots of opportunity to develop my skill sets and work in a number of different roles.
