Live Job Roles This Week At Bristow Holland
Before we can make matches for either the candidate or employer, we need to make sure the proposition is sensibly aligned with the market. Only a specialist with a deep understanding of the sector can do this. For hirers, this means defining what you want to achieve with your new hire; for tech specialists we’ll go over your experience, expectations and priorities for the future. If they all add up we can make things happen.
Finding a high-value match for both parties means everyone needs to bring their A-game. Throughout the search, selection and interview process, we ensure both businesses and specialists convey their value with clarity and honesty, so each understands and trusts what the other brings to the table.
At every stage, our team will keep you informed, answer any concerns and support you through any challenges that may arise. Our role is to anticipate obstacles, eliminate them before you know about them or calmly advise how we will handle them with as little stress as possible. And we will always be on hand for ongoing advice.
Frequently asked questions
The usual way to get into project management is via a business degree, but within the IT and Tech sector it is more common for specialists to move into it through an internal sideways move in their own organisation.
You would usually come to it from a functional role where you have taken on responsibility for the delivery of an IT project, or been seconded onto a specific project to ensure its delivery. If you are looking to get into project management, then you should seek out these kinds of opportunities in your current work setting.
There is quite a linear career path from Junior Project Manager to Project Manager and then Senior Project Manager. Beyond this, you would move upwards to roles like Programme Manager or Business Transformation Specialist, setting up and overseeing larger projects with more complex demands, like a company relocation, new premises, and leading a team of project managers.
A Junior PM would start at a salary of around £25k. Senior PMs often earn £50k-60k per year, with Business Transformation and Programme Managers getting anything from £500-800 per day, depending on the size of the project.
There are quite a few certifications possible in project management. Prince2 is a widely-recognised (both in the UK and internationally) project management qualification following a process-based methodology, with various gradings according to experience or seniority. Getting a Prince2 qualification can help you a great deal when it comes to securing a job.
Other certifications are also available, like PMP (Certified Project Management Professional), MSP (Managing Successful Programmes courses) and some other side-qualifications like Scrum Master for specific agile systems.
Similar to business analysis, we’d expect high-quality project managers to be around for a long time. As the job is quite generalist, with contractors moving from company to company, the more technical and better-qualified PMs will be in demand in future.
As technology and connectedness gets ever more smooth, good project managers will be improving interpersonal skills, managing resources and dealing with expectation management as much as running the projects.
Usually, larger companies running their own IT development in conjunction with their usual business activities, or software companies integrating specific projects, will hire project managers. Whenever a company is rolling out a new system or making significant tech infrastructure changes there will be a need for a professional to make sure everything is coming together properly.
