Project Management Recruitment – Which Job Title?

One of the lessons the team at Arras People have learned over the years is that Programme and Project Management has a vast array of job titles, many of which have different meanings depending upon the organisation, the sector or even the individual looking to hire.

People easily confuse the terms ‘Project Management’ and ‘Project Manager’ let alone the vast number of roles that live within the broad church of Project management.

Below you will find our high level view on the family of programme and project management job titles, first, breaking it into broad groupings such as ‘programme management’ followed by a list of some typical role titles that we see that live within.

Part of our service is to help you position your role around this generally recognised structure so that you can effectively target project management practitioners who are active in the marketplace today; Arras People is here to help you talk the language of the project management domain.
