Permanent Project Management Recruitment Services

Hiring for Permanent Project Management Positions

Arras People have been providing programme and project management professionals on a Permanent (PAYE) basis across all sectors since 2002 and are ideally positioned to help you find the right calibre of candidates.

Demonstrable Track Record

The team at Arras People have many years' experience of finding suitable candidates to take up permanent roles across all project management roles; at all levels of salary and across a wide spectrum of sectors. Our proven methodology allows us to understand the key attributes that you require in a project management practitioner and then use our wide selection of tools to identify and pre-screen suitable candidates before submitting a short list.

We have unrivalled access to a talent pool of project management practitioners who are interested in furthering their careers within their chosen field of operation. Our skill is to link these professionals with your organisation and sell the opportunity in an honest and open way. Experience tells us that many of the traditional routes to market such as newspaper advertising and generalist web based job boards do not engage this talent pool as many of our contacts are not actively looking for a new role.

Many practitioners within the Arras People talent pool would not respond to an advert, nor trust their details with an unknown third party. These key individuals however have registered their details with Arras People so that we can keep them updated about the marketplace and inform them of any opportunities that may fit their profile and/or aspirations.

Permanent and Contract Project Management Recruitment

Fixed Term Placements

During our years of delivering project management recruitment services we have seen the market changing with a noticeable increase in the number of opportunities offered as a Fixed Term (PAYE) placement.

Whilst we all tend to recognise and understand a Permanent role, the Fixed Term employment option has generally been driven by organisations who need to secure programme and project personnel in a manner that is cost effective whilst at the same time flexible and capable of helping them meet their objectives.

Arras People also understand the unique challenges of selling Fixed Term (PAYE) roles to programme and project management practitioners and again we have a proven track record in filling these roles for many clients across a wide sector of the market. In terms of fees we engage on a pro-rata basis based on the length of the assignment.

If you needed to fill your Permanent PM position yesterday, or have a longer lead time, don't hesitate to call us on 0845 680 6444 or contact us to discuss your requirements and see how we can help.

Contract Project Management Recruitment Services

Hiring for Contract Project Management Positions

Arras People have been successfully supplying Contract programme and project management professionals for client organisations across all sectors since 2002.

Independent contractors, sometimes called interims or freelancers, operating through Limited companies or Umbrella organisations, have become a major feature of the UK and European resourcing market over recent years. This engagement route provides hiring organisations access to a flexible workforce of highly skilled practitioners for a fixed day rate over an agreed timescale; without the need to incur the overhead costs associated with a permanent employee and in a manner that is cost effective whilst at the same time flexible.

Arras People is ideally positioned to help you find the right calibre of candidates to fill your contractor based project management positions at all levels of the organisation.

Interim Project Management Recruitment Services

Hiring for Interim Project Management Positions

Interim Management can be generally defined as the temporary provision of a management level resource that has the skills and knowledge to deliver a short-term assignment through a period of transition, crisis or change within an organisation. Typically this provision will be undertaken as a PAYE as the role is seen as being part of the organisations structure. However, as so often happens in the world of project management, language can cause confusion as many day rate contractors also call themselves as interims.

In many of today’s organisations, some of the roles within the programme and project management job family operate at a senior and/or board level role where it crosses into operational activities. In these situations a permanent employee may be difficult to find on short notice or there may be nobody internally who is available to provide cover whilst the permanent recruitment takes place. In these situations Arras People is ideally positioned to help you find the right calibre of candidates to fill your interim management positions at all levels of the organisation.

What Organisations Look for in a Project Management Candidate

Project Management Recruitment HierachyThrough the Arras People Project Management Benchmark Report (PMBR) we have asked over a number of years what it is that is important to those involved in the recruitment of project management practitioners.

As can be seen in the figure to the right, the hierachy of requirements relects the doing nature of the roles in the project management family of job roles. At the top of the pile is 'Project Management Experience' followed by the practitioners 'Personality / Style' and then their relevant 'Domain / Sector Experience'. These three elements are then followed by 'Project management Accreditation' and finally 'Formal Education'.

Whilst the Education and Accreditation elements are generally easy to identify in a CV or by key word searching software; Arras People have the skills and process that allow us to identify the critical combination of Project Management Experience, Personality / Style and Domain/Sector experience which can easily be missed if CV's are screened by an untrained eye.

Our experience and research suggest that most CV's do not sell a practitioners true capability, our skill and value is in identifying the real capability so talent is not overlooked and missed in the recruitment process.
