Why Valtech thinks DE&I is important
At Valtech, we are committed to diversity and inclusion to drive our business results and create a better future every day for our employees, global consumers, partners and communities. We believe a diverse workforce allows us to match our growth ambitions and drives inclusion across the industry. At Valtech, we are interested in every individual and the talent they have.

Their biggest challenge in DE&I

The industry is very male dominated, however we slowly see an increase in female hires. However, attracting women is one thing, keeping them is another challenge. Women are more likely to leave the industry mid career. That’s why support of leadership in retaining female talent is key. We need to embrace community even more, through continuing to reach the next generation of women in tech (our global initiative Tech Girl is a way to do so).

The challenge

Do you have a bird’s-eye view? Are you a natural at coordinating activities and people? Ready to go above and beyond to make our clients happy? If so, you sound like the perfect fit to be our new Program Manager!

The opportunity! In this role, you’ll work collaboratively across Valtech and our global network. You will make sure the quality of our work is up to par and maintain a good relationship with clients on a tactical level.

The position
As a Program Manager, you will play an important role in the digital transformation of international B2B companies. You do this by overseeing multiple teams that are building digital platforms that transform the way how these companies sell and deliver their products and services. You play an important role in guiding our clients through their digital transformation. That’s why you strive to understand our client’s business and can design and run a focused delivery program to reach their goals.

Below are some of the things you will be doing on a regular basis:

  • you are the main contact person for the client;
  • you will make sure the governance for the project is in place and monitor and report on the delivery progress of our multidisciplinary teams who are experts in digital, creation, technology, and marketing;
  • assure the promised outcome of project proposals and plans and ensure our team is matching the output we promised;
  • communicate proactively to all relevant stakeholders on how to maximize impact while mitigating risk;
  • proactive in managing risks, identifying problems in delivery internally and externally within our clients organizations and take actions to resolve and escalate issues that may occur;
  • ensure that the client’s vision and strategy is clear to the Valtech team;
  • facilitate the team and make sure everyone is aligned on delivering against the impact and value we define with our clients;
  • motivate project team members, encourage and support productive work performance, and facilitate team collaboration;
  • establish KPI’s and reports to define progress and success.
