Project Management Recruitment

Recruiting project management talent to transform service delivery

Project management has been a huge growth area in the professional services sector. Firms that have developed their project management capabilities have seen major improvements in the way work is managed and delivered.

Project management can be a highly transformative process. It is about delivering better budget controls, communication, reporting, and looking for ways through which to introduce new processes tools and technology that can support more efficient work delivery. As roles can impact every aspect of a way a firm does business, project management individuals and teams have considerable influence in shaping the future business model of firms they work with.

Roles in this area are often bespoke, depending on the specific needs of individual firms. That is why at Totum we work very closely with businesses to understand requirements so that we can source exactly the right skills to meet often unique objectives. From helping firms to scope out roles and job descriptions to acting as a supportive broker through the offer process, we are experts in making the right matches in this pivotal area of business services.

Totum has gained considerable experience in helping place project managers in a wide variety of firms, whether the business is new to project management or is in the process of building a stronger team. We know how important it is to source candidates who can engage all stakeholders effectively to deliver what are often far-reaching changes impacting the way work is managed and delivered.

With professional services firms facing ever more pressures in terms of client expectations around service levels and pricing requirements, project management has become vital to gaining firmer control over how work is managed. This is especially the case with cross-border matters, which tend to be highly complex, requiring the management/coordination of many strands and resources across multiple jurisdictions.

This has led to project management becoming an essential component of the modern professional services business. With deep understanding of what is required from project managers in the professional services sector, Totum has the specialist expertise to make the most successful placements, sourcing talent from both within professional services and, where appropriate, wider industry.

Whatever your firm requires to develop its project management capabilities, Totum can deliver.
