Project Manager

A Project Manager will manage and run (usually several) live projects through their complete lifecycle, from initiation to completion. Skills absolutely essential to the job are: planning, organisation, control management, diplomacy, communication, leadership, direction and attention to detail.Project managers often have to work to tight deadlines, so calmness under pressure is another great attribute! The job involves:

• Client liaison to ensure not only that their requirements are fully understood, but also that they in turn understand the acceptance criteria and what can and cannot be delivered
• Managing all aspects of live projects
• Management of often quite diverse personnel (teams may be entirely different on each project, and may also include contract staff)
Ability to change and/or implement new business processes where necessary.
