Helping You Meet Your PMO Demands

PMO is on the rise
The Project Management Office at DANTE was under-resourced and the workload had increased significantly to support the globally based associates which was set to grow. The challenge for Arras People was to source a candidate with a strong PMO and project administration background who had exposure to supporting global teams in a technical field and ideally have a second language. This was all working on a very limited budget for a 12 month contract.
Two Stage Interview Not Daunting
The candidate was offered the role after a two stage interview process and exceeded expectations – she is bi-lingual, has a stellar background in supporting programmes of work within a number of PMOs and lives locally to the client which means she can continue with a number of courses she had started recently.
The requirement had tight budgets and timelines – and with any good PMO contractor she hit the ground running from the first day
Arras People have worked in the PMO area of project management since we started back in 2002 and know the industry inside out and back to front - that also means we already have relationships with some of the best PMO talent in the marketplace today.
