All businesses need to go through change and transformation from time to time as they strive to excel in their industries or start along a path to diversification. But winding down certain business practices and embarking on a whole new set of principles, philosophies and practices is not something that comes naturally to many businesses, who thrive on continuity. So when a major change or transformation project is decided upon by a board, one of the first appointments is a project manager to oversee the process.
The role of project manager varies widely from company to company. Some are there from the start, putting together a brilliant team of specialist sourced from internal and external resources, and then designing and implementing a thorough plan for seeing the project through. Others have a more traditional managerial role, taking detailed instructions from the board and putting the tools and resources in place to see them through. Either way, the C&T project manager guides the project and is the person who ultimately ensures its success.
Companies looking for C&T project managers do not want to leave anything to chance, and are looking for experienced managers who have overseen complex and time-sensitive projects successfully. Your skills therefore need to be twofold. Firstly, you need to be a fantastic manager of people and a great communicator, as you will be relaying instructions than might be complex and of critical importance to the project, so they need to be right. Secondly, you should have experience of project managing C&T in a similar sector to get the most out of the knowledge and expertise gained.
Most large companies will require a formal qualification in project management, such as PRINCE2, APM or PMI as a minimum requirement for the role. However, a CV full of success stories in C&T project management may be enough for some companies, and many will provide training and the opportunity to study for these qualifications.

The county town of Kent, Maidstone is situated on the River Medway and is just over 30 miles south-east of London. A bustling town with plenty of history and pretty public gardens, Maidstone is also an excellent option for those seeking Project Manager positions.
Archaeological evidence suggests that the area around Maidstone has been occupied since the Neolithic era, while the Romans and Normans also had settlements here. For much of the town's history, its economy relied on the river, which powered mills and served as a trade route.
By the 18th century, Maidstone had built up a number of industries, including stone quarrying, brewing and cloth making. Paper was also manufactured here and a technique for making wove paper was developed by James Whatman in 1740.
Today, Maidstone is a thriving community with plenty of retail space, restaurants and accommodation. It's also home to a number of large companies, such as KEF, which makes loudspeakers on the site of what was once a metalworking facility.
Maidstone is home to one of the largest office centres in the country. A significant amount of paper and package making is still carried out here and Aylesford is the largest paper recycling facility in Europe - it also manufactures newsprint.
In recent years, a number of tech and communications companies have also set up operations in Maidstone.
