What is the career journey for Project Managers?
The profession of Project Management is becoming increasingly professionalised, whereby PM’s need certifications. We have Project Manager jobs for traditional IT Project Managers who developed their skills early in their careers within the software development lifecycle or in IT Infrastructure such as networking and data centres. We also have demand from clients for Project Managers who developed their Project Management skills through business operations, regulatory and compliance projects, business change and business readiness.
Traditionally a Project Manager gained experience in another area before moving into project management, however, we now see graduates enter the profession straight from University or developing their project and change skills in consultancy or software / IT integration companies. These professional project managers are progressing to Senior Project Manager jobs and Programme Manager positions.
Key Certifications to have for Project Manager jobs:
Companies typically look for Project Managers with 2 + years of project experience and it is now essential that a project manager can validate their experience with professional certification such as Prince2 or Project Management Professional (PMP). In some organisations Program Managers in hiring management roles may have a particular preference, however, generally speaking, it is most important that a Project Manager can apply a project methodology. It is increasingly important for project managers to have skills and training in agile project management.
