PMO Analyst - Derby

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 Derby

Located on the River Derwent in Derbyshire, Derby is among England's 20 largest urban areas and the broad range of businesses based there today make it a great option for those seeking new PMO Analyst vacancies.

Derby's history goes back to a Roman settlement called Derventio and the area was home to Saxon and Viking communities during its early years.

The Industrial Revolution marked an important turning point for Derby and the city was the first to reap the benefits of a water-powered silk mill in the early 1700s.

Other innovations later in the century led to improved techniques for manufacturing stockings. In addition, a number of cotton spinning mills were established.

Within 100 years, Derby had become an important industrialised city as well as the headquarters for a number of regional railways.

Rolls-Royce established a factory in 1907, constructing cars and aircraft, while the Derby railway works was a bustling facility that designed and built rolling stock for the nation's growing rail system. Indeed, the first diesel-electric locomotive was produced there in 1948.

There's no doubt that Derby's past has influenced its future and today its top employers continue to be based in automotive manufacture and railway engineering. These include Rolls-Royce, Toyota and Bombardier Transportation.

Other well-known companies include Egg, an internet banking company, and Alstom, a company that manufactures boilers and heat exchangers for industrial purposes. Meanwhile, the chocolate company Thorntons is headquartered in nearby Alfreton.
