Senior Consultant, Project Manager – MDRx Job in United Kingdom

Job title: Senior Consultant, Project ManagerMDRx

Company: Mishcon de Reya

Job description: Description


We need your help to build our world-class project and delivery management offering.

Our ideal candidate is driven by a passion for envisioning the future for exciting clients. You are equally enthusiastic about collaborating with development teams to execute plans within the designated time and budget. At this stage of their career, they embrace the opportunity to share their knowledge and take on line management responsibilities. They possess a keen insight into fostering not only their own career growth but also that of others, displaying adeptness in nurturing and guiding careers. They excel in the capacity of a coach and mentor, finding their stride in this role. Additionally, they enjoy contributing to the development of processes and methodologies.

This candidate possesses an entrepreneurial spirit, a “roll up your sleeves” mentality, and a proactive attitude towards taking ownership. They value autonomy and seek opportunities for personal and professional growth. Furthermore, they are ready to assume a client-facing role with minimal supervision.

Our ideal candidate has a solid understanding of Agile methodologies, including Scrum and Kanban. Preferably you’d hold a certification in this area, but it’s also very important that you be adaptable and willing to tailor your approach to accommodate each client’s specific requirements. They possess the skills and experience necessary to effectively plan and prioritise deliverables and resources, even when working on multiple projects simultaneously. Managing client expectations, schedules, commercials, assets, and scope is comfortable territory for them.

Solving problems is a source of joy for this candidate, and they thrive in a role where they can make decisions that align with project goals and objectives. They excel at building strong relationships with both project teams and clients, often facilitating workshops to define and review scope, requirements, and deliverables.

So, what will you actually be doing?

Within your first 30 days:

  • Y ou’ll be joining a client project (or possibly more than one) as the Project Manager, responsible for setting and continuously managing project expectations, as well as delegating and overseeing deliverables with team members and stakeholders. You will:
  • Act as the primary point of contact for clients, maintaining regular communication to provide updates, manage expectations, and address concerns effectively.
  • Conduct frequent project status meetings, facilitating clear and efficient communication among all stakeholders involved.
  • Create comprehensive project plans, timelines, and budgets that align with both client expectations and business strategy.
  • Efficiently coordinate and allocate resources, ensuring the project has the necessary skills and capacity for successful execution.
  • Monitor project progress closely, proactively identifying and addressing potential roadblocks to keep projects on track.
  • Lead cross-functional teams, including software engineers, designers, and data analysts, ensuring their understanding of project objectives and requirements.
  • Identify project risks and develop mitigation strategies to minimize potential disruptions.

You’ll be supported by the head of delivery and your peers, with the expectation that you’ll get feedback and help whenever you need it.

  • You’ll complete a career development plan with your line manager to understand where you are in your career journey and to set learning and development targets.
  • You’ll participate in weekly strategy practice meetings to support your peers
  • You’ll attend weekly all-hands meetings, and so will have (at least virtually) met everyone at the company and will start to feel comfortable with your place in it.
  • You’ll eat tasty food at a new joiner’s lunch with the CEO.

Within 90 days:

  • You’ll help the head of delivery refine the processes and ways of working. Your experience will be extremely appreciated.
  • You’ll likely start managing junior members of staff.
  • We’re constantly pushing the boundaries of emerging tech, but at the moment we do a lot of web3, metaverse, and data science work. If you didn’t come in with much knowledge about any of these spaces (which, by the way, we don’t expect) you’ll have begun upskilling so you can talk confidently with your client and start pushing the envelope on what products and services in that space should look like going forward.

After 6 months

  • You’ll probably have finished your first project and will be moving on to the next.
  • You’ll help put together contracts for new projects.
  • You may be asked to participate in industry talks/ conferences.

After 1 year

  • Get promoted to Principal, which means taking a thought leadership role within the business.

Haven’t done everything listed in the ‘first 30 days’ category yet?Studies have shown that women and people of colour are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. At MDRx we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with this job description, we encourage you to apply anyway.


We’re a bit of an anomaly: a startup tech consulting company backed by an established law firm. The ‘startup’ part means there’s a lot of room for employee autonomy and opportunity to help design the company, whereas the ‘law firm’ part is why we have nice benefits, pretty conference rooms, and a runway to succeed.

We specialise in emerging tech, and we’re on a pretty hefty mission to change the face of consultancy, putting meaning behind digital transformation by delivering experiences for customers that create value and impact. That also means our culture really cares about people, not just profit, and definitely not just utilisation.

Our law firm origins allow us to combine leading business, tech, and legal expertise. That tends to look like building software that’s legally complex… but we go for the interesting stuff, which is why we often end up in Web3, Metaverse, or Data Science worlds.

We work with a variety of sizes of organisations, from funded startups to large companies to government agencies, but always try to deliver value in an agile manner.


Hybrid, with flexible hours. We have a great office just outside the Holborn tube station that we ask you to come into twice a week. This includes team days several times a month, away days twice a year, and whenever we run in-person client workshops. Although we’re in a ‘hold on we’re blasting off’ phase of growth, we don’t ask our people to work taxing hours unless a project is in absolute crunch time.
