Technology Project Manager (Ashton Gate Stadium / Bristol Sport)

  • Job Type: Full-time
  • Location: Bristol (Ashton Gate)
  • Reporting into: Head of Digital
  • Salary: £25,000

PTI Digital are looking for an ambitious Technology Project Manager to lead our delivery on-site with Ashton Gate Stadium and Bristol Sport. If you love sport, love live entertainment and love the challenge of helping our clients on a digital-led business transformation journey we want you in our team!

PTI is a digital transformation consultancy which specialises in driving smart, scalable and sustainable revenues for the Sports and Entertainment industries through a holistic digital-led commercial vision.

The PTI Digital Transformation “Pyramid”

Our approach combines the revolutionary vision of our Digital Transformation Pyramid with an evolutionary approach. Many of us have worked client-side and understand the realities of the day-to-day pressures so we recognise that whilst the endgame is genuinely transformational, we need to move at their pace.

Our clients have all started their journey with us on different parts of the pyramid but placing short term needs into the context of a broader long-term roadmap enables discussions about “cost” to become discussions about “investment”. Whereas many rush into the “what?” PTI always start with “Why?”

Current PTI Clients include: OakView Group, London Stadium, NEC Group, Edgbaston Stadium, Bristol Sport & Ashton Gate Stadium, Norwich City FC, Wasps & CBS Arena, Bath Rugby, UK Pro League Tennis, Lancashire Cricket and Surrey CCC with many more in the pipeline.

We have an agile, fast growing digital-age business, with an ever-expanding client base. Our client work fits the same bill: we are building digital-first 365/24 commercial models built on wide-reaching engagement strategies, a smart digital and data ecosystem and a creative approach to commercialising their audiences all year-round.
