PMO Analyst - Cheshire

PMO Analyst Jobs

Large projects can become incredibly complex, and with complexity comes confusion and a tendency to let inefficiencies creep in. That’s why the project management office (PMO) analyst is brought in. He or she is tasked with monitoring the data flowing through the process and identifying weak spots, inefficiencies and other problems that are causing unnecessary costs to mount up. Often, the PMO analyst is required to audit a process and come up with a set of standards that become the goal of those involved in the process, and then he or she will ensure these standards are met.

The PMO analyst usually oversees the project support officer and they collectively support and maintain the project management, and often report to a project manager or director who should act on the PMO analyst’s recommendations. PMO analysts can be on short–medium-term contracts as they oversee a particular change or transformation, or they could be full-time employees imposing constant improvement and efficiencies on an ongoing process.

The skills required

Depending on the role and the industry, some companies demand experience in industry-standard methodologies like PRINCE2 or similar as a basic qualification, whereas others will be happy with a proven record of process improvement through analysis. The handling of data is the PMO analyst’s most important individual task. You should know how to collect process data accurately and to maintain it clearly and accessibly. You also need to understand how to interpret the data so that you can start putting reparative measures in place.

You probably won’t be sitting looking at dials and graphs all day – you will be getting out into the workplace and talking to people about their processes and problems and thus identifying issues. This can be more telling than any raw performance data. Experience in the same industry as the business will be of great assistance if you are to quickly get up to speed with how it works.

PMO Analyst Jobs in Cheshire

A ceremonial county in the North West of England, Cheshire is situated on the River Mersey and is home to a number of cities and towns, including Chester, Warrington, Widnes, Crewe, Ellesmere Port and Macclesfield.

For hundreds of years, the region has been known for its production of cheese, salt, chemicals and textiles - especially woven silk - while agriculture has also provided a longstanding boost to the area's economy.

During the Industrial Revolution, Cheshire experienced significant growth, particularly due to the fact that the Manchester Ship Canal and other such waterways pass through the area.

In addition, Crewe held a prominent position in the country's railroad industry, as it was the location of a major junction, as well as the Crewe Railway Works, a leading producer of locomotives.

These days, Cheshire is home to a vast number of companies, making it an ideal choice for those seeking PMO Analyst vacancies.

Salt mining and chemicals are still an important part of Cheshire's economy, with companies like British Salt, Ineos and Brunner Mond, as well as the Stanlow Refinery at Ellesmere Port.

Meanwhile, other industries gained prominence - like bio-technology, financial services, ICT and manufacturing.

Just some of the big names you'll find in the region include Jaguar, Vauxhall, Bentley, Mornflake, United Utilities and Pets at Home. In addition, Woodford Aerodrome is a facility of BAE Systems that has produced aircraft ranging from passenger jets to military bombers.
