Arras People at APM in the Midlands

John Thorpe and Lindsay Scott from Arras People will be presenting at two APM branch meetings in September and October 2011.

An opportunity to find out more about the current project management marketplace for jobs and careers in the UK. This presentation will suit project professionals with any level of experience.

Over the last three years, the project management marketplace has seen winners and losers. Demand for project managers has increased significantly in some sectors whilst others have suffered through cutbacks and redundancies. John Thorpe kicks off the presentation with an overview of the current conditions in the project management marketplace.

John will be presenting answers to these crucial questions;

  • How are the salary and rates currently holding up?
  • Which sectors are experiencing a demand for project management talent?
  • What are organisations looking for in their project professionals?

The project management recruitment market has seen changes over the last three years. It has become increasingly competitive, with many project professionals experiencing frustration in finding the right opportunity and successfully interviewing for roles.

Lindsay Scott shares her experiences and insights into how project managers can differentiate themselves and standout in a crowded marketplace. Lindsay will provide practical guidance on how to find the right career opportunity; how to present yourself (against what organisations are looking for); and the project management CV.
