Train for a role as a Project Manager

If you are looking to work in the project sector, then working within Project Administration is a fantastic route towards a Project Management career.

A Project Administrator includes being involved in generally supporting the project team, through auditing, administrations, data management etc for projects whilst under the supervision of a Project Manager.

UK Project Administration roles typically pay between £25,000 up to as high as £37,500 for more senior support positions.

Project support workers need strong executive administrative skills, as well as the finance budgeting and reporting skills learned through a project management methodology such as PRINCE2 or AgilePM. You will also be working closely with a Project Manager or senior members of the team, so understanding key project management methodologies is a must.

In some companies the Project Administrator roles or almost identical to that of a project manager but working on smaller projects; whilst other companies working on larger projects may have a varied level of duties that project support workers deal with from more junior admin roles to more senior supervisory positions. The aim of the support team is to free up time and provide support to the Project Manager freeing up their time to speak with high level managers and stakeholders.

We have created an opportunity to work within the project sector by ensuring that candidates are fully prepared and qualified to work in Project Support roles.

PRINCE2, AgilePM, Change Management and Business Analysis are all methodologies and frameworks used by Project Managers, and it is therefore essential that anyone looking to work as a Project Administrator has achieved a minimum of a foundation-level certification.

Therefore, we will provide training through official accredited courses, as well as the official exams, to ensure that you can complete these certifications as quickly as possible. We will grant you up to 1 year to complete these studies, but many people are able to complete this training package in a few weeks.

Once you have completed these studies, we will provide access to our recruitment services, which ensures that you are in the best position possible to gain your first role in the project sector as either a Project Administrator, Project Co-ordinator, Project Support or Junior Project Manager.

We will do this by providing you with a full CV review and then assist you in obtaining interviews through one of our many existing corporate and recruitment contacts.

You will have access to your own Mentor for interview and career guidance, as well as access to our own Project Managers and Project Management Trainers for any advice or support needed.

We will continue to provide this service to you up to the anniversary of your commencement of studies with us.

In fact, we are so confident of our ability to find you a project role that, if we are unable to do so within 12 months of you passing your third exam, we will reimburse you the cost of the training (excluding exam fees).
