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.

One of the smallest counties in England, Rutland is bordered by Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire, as well as the unitary authority, Peterborough.
With just two towns, Oakham and Uppingham, and villages including Ketton and Cottesmore, Rutland may be diminutive in size, but it offers a variety of opportunities for those seeking Project Manager positions.
It's one of the least economically deprived areas in England and in 2007, it became the fourth county to be awarded Fairtrade Status.
The region has a long history and it first shows up in the record books in 1159. Uppingham School, one of the first public schools in the country, was founded in 1584 and over the years it has educated a number of well-known writers, innovators, historians, scientists, politicians, sportsmen and musicians.
Ketton stone is a type of limestone used in building and as an ingredient in cement. The Hanson Cement plant in Ketton produces more than 10 per cent of the UK's demand for the mixture.
In addition, Rutland Bitter is one of only three UK beers to have been given Protected Geographical Indication status. These days, the Grainstore Brewery is one of the few companies to manufacture the tasty beverage.
