Global Census Out for Study of the Project Management Market for 2014-2015



24 November 2014 – Haywood, Manchester, UK – Arras People, the UK’s project management recruitment specialists, have released their latest “Census” on the project management jobs market in UK and elsewhere. Arras People’s Project Management Census 2015 aims to take the pulse of the current UK and international project management marketplace by soliciting the views of over 4000 practitioners.

141124-pmwj29-census-IMAGENow in its tenth year, the census data is used to create the Project Management Benchmark Report which will become available in January 2015. The Benchmark Report serves as the UK’s lone official declaration of the status of project management in the UK and concentrates on factors affecting project management practitioners’ earnings, aspirations and professional life. This year the Census has been extended to include international project management practitioners.

The aim of this year’s census is to take a deeper look at the people who work in the project management profession. The Census focuses on individual roles within project management and the report will profile project managers, programme managers, portfolio managers, PMO managers, project support, change managers and business analysts.

Informative, relevant and wide-ranging in area coverage, the resulting Benchmark Report is able to draw on historical data from previous reports to show key trend changes in project management. Project management practitioners; hirers of project management staff; organisations with a vested interest in the project management marketplace and students are all invited to take part in the Census. The report is provided free-of-charge in January 2015.

This year Arras People are also offering the chance for participants to win project management related prizes from sponsors who include ESI, DSDM, Parallel Project Training and Gower. To take part in the Project Management Census you’ll need somewhere between 5 and 15 minutes. Go to PM Census and lend your voice to your community.

Last year’s Project Management Benchmark Report is also available to view here.
